Just what we need, that way he can hit double-play balls even harder and more efficiently instead of the dribblers to 2nd he hits now

Re: Brewers trade for a catcher

Sounds like a great backup C but if the Brewers are counting on him as an everyday starter they're in for some rough defense behind the plate. I'm all for this

Re: The Ricketts family sucks in all kinds of ways

Ricketts (who personally bears an uncanny resemblance to a loaf of factory bread) adds, without ever stopping to consider whether there’s any role the union he eagerly undermined might have played in alleviating these dehumanizing conditions.

Going to be interesting to see the teamwide mutiny if Ross gets hired. No one wants to have that horsefeathers anywhere near the team on a regular basis again.

Don't know where i belong; but the reason i don't go to Mlb games much any more is the bums make too much $$$ for very little talents. I guess i grew up watching a different game in the 1950's and 1960's when players thought they were lucky to have people pay to watch them and kids idolized these s...

No. That’s the one good thing from this year. PECOTA and those smug pricks were wrong with their garbage projection system.

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

78:3 K:BB in July and August combined. It's really surpring to me that he's only the 30th best pitcher in terms of fWAR in that stretch, at 1.1. Quintana is 13th at 1.7. Verlander is the one that is most confusing. I get all the home runs, but look at these two lines. Darvish: 62 IP, 11.32 K/9, 0.4...

Interesting article about Hard-R Hader's fastball and why no one can hit it, which is something I've been curious about for a long time.

Re: Trade targets 2019

Brian Anderson would be interesting. He’s 26, so he’s not “young” for a rebuilding team. Is a plus defender at 3B and OF. I’d do something like Almora (Jeets has to love him), Ademan, a Giambrone type and a pitcher we don’t really care about. If we just want someone to be a slightly above average b...
