Re: It's HAPPening!

Finally figured out how to break the Duke Curse.



That was before his homer.

Re: Addison Russell

Depending on if you prefer UZR or DRS, Addison Russell is on pace for somewhere around 4.5-5.5 WAR.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Just so I'm on record somewhere with it: All of the players we've traded away that everyone has been freaking out about... they all suck. Jorge is living off of a .400 BABIP. He's a bad base runner and a horrible defender. His BB/K rate is a little out of whack. He's not seeing many pitches at all i...

Re: 2018 HR Derby {Discussion & Transaction Thread}

Kept Cabrera on my roster even though he's butt and has been injured for two weeks. Planned it perfectly by being lazy and waiting until Pollock coincidentally got hurt to make a move.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 5-11-18

After all these years, all the discussion, all the consternation, all the top-10-round picks, all the bullpen conversions, all the flame-outs, all the injuries... Duane Underwood is going to be the one Theo draft pick that sticks in our rotation.

Re: #NotAllPitchers

They could be toying with the 10-day DL, too, though.

But if you head over to Mets Refugees, I'm sure they've heard something similar about 30 times. Lat strains are often thought to be minor when that turns out not to be the case, and those things can linger, too.

It came up in the GT today but thought I'd post it here to keep the discussion going. The results haven't been great but the process has been really good by Russell so far this year and good things should start happening soon. As the Duke'ster and I pointed out Russell this year...

As long as none of the new Cub Babies come out of the womb throwing bats into the crowd, I don't think his teammates are going to care very much.

Re: "horsefeathers looks like The Thing" - The Kyle Schwarber Thread

Amazingly, Schwarber has 1 DRS this year. For him to develop into something less like a black hole in the OF is a huge plus moving forward. His UZR is higher than Heyward's btw. He also rates positively in UZR, and BP's FRAA. And he comes in even in Statcast's Outs Above Average. If he can be an av...

Please share with me anything good that has happened to you since we recorded the final out in Game 7 to prove that out didn't transfer us into the Hellworld alternate timeline in which everything is bad.

Man, I need to get out there sometime. Let me know the next time you decide to go Duke! How does Miguel Amaya look? He's playing today right?

South Bend is really bad, though. Almost completely devoid of talent, other than Amaya.
