By 2015 WAR, we just took StL's best hitter and best pitcher.

Re: Edgar (j?) Olmos

I'm guessing he's a reliever only? Hasn't really been a SP since early 2010's, only started 4 games between AAA/MLB this past year. Looks like he has decent velo for a LHP, in 2013 when he only appeared in relief his FB velocity averaged 95.5 MPH and was at 92.4 last year with about 60% of his inni...

Re: Mike Leake

That's a fun exercise and fundamentally illustrates that he's had a decent ERA the past few years. You could do the same thing for a guy like Bud Norris across a several year horizon. Unfortunately, that's another version of a descriptive stat instead of a predictive one. I just don't trust pitcher...

There've been like zero Heyward rumors so far. Come on. To me that means he's a Cub. Super-secret theo. This one always seems weird to me. We've had a few surprise moves, but we've had at least as many that were widely publicized in advance. We've even had a few deals scuttled after they leaked. We...
