Re: Baez impresses Baez

Their WAR difference is .4 - that is pretty meaningless. while i wouldn't say half a win is meaningless, it's actually a difference of .8 I'm seeing 5.1 vs 4.7. Regardless, WAR has standard margin of error - any derived statistical indicator has one. Lowest suggestion I've seen is 15% and I believe...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

I guess they're still salty about Rizzo, just giving pitchers to Cubs' competitors.

Re: Regular Season Rumors

All I can see is that someone noticed Duffy changed his handle from Duffkc41 to Duffman and a few Royals fans are freaking out about it. He even responded to them with this https://twitter.com/Duffman/status/1021846642629242881 No harm no foul, but probably not the best time of year to do that.

With his 1 RBI today, Baez enters the All-Star break leading the NL (2nd in the MLB).

Re: Midseason Assessment (aka - what do we need at the deadline?)

He's been essentially the same guy with varying "luck" on HR/FB for each of the past few years. Some of that "luck" is truly luck and some of it was poor command within the strike zone. Given the depth of Houston's pen this year, maybe they've been able to do a better job preven...

Re: Midseason Assessment (aka - what do we need at the deadline?)

While I was absolutely on board with letting Hector Rondon go last off season.....man, he's kicking a lot of ass in Houston this year We'll see how he does in the second half. He's been really good in the past and then got injured/fatigued towards the end of the season. I was ok with letting him go...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

So the Cubs, who have one of the top offenses in baseball, are going to give up their top prospect for an injured, unnecessary, rental... can the Cards please hire Duquette after they fire Mo? That would be excellent.

If we're going to have a completely useless player on the roster, DFA this jackass and call up Taylor Davis. At least he's fun.

Re: Midseason Assessment (aka - what do we need at the deadline?)

One option for back up catcher could be Robinson Chirinos in Texas. He's in the last year of his contract, Texas sucks, and may not be too expensive to pick up. Caratini should not be the back-up. The only way he has value as a catcher is if he's getting plate appearances. I think he can be an above...
