Re: How much is 1 WAR worth?

If you genuinely believe that the playoffs are a crapshoot I think there's a pretty big middle ground between, "anything can happen between between 'typical' playoff teams," and, "a good team that unfortunately kind of hit the wall due to injuries and an imploding starting rotation p...

There's far more evidence that says we should be start playing better than there is for pretty much every other team we'd have to worry about.

When I was young, everybody hated the Yankees because Steinbrenner bought all the players he wanted.

Re: David Bote is a Golden God and Deserves His Own Thread

And his exit velocity has been stable - standard deviation is only 12.7mph. As a comparison, Harper's exit velocity is 91.7mph and standard deviation ...
