PITCHf/ox: Episode 10: Don't Say it

The finale leaves more than a few things hanging by a thread.

On the season finale of Pitch, Ginny chases history while nearing her season shutdown point, making a run at the first no-hitter by a woman ever, while flashing around to romantic subplots and clearing the mechanism in a way that’s totally not at all ripped off from For Love of The Game. Mike and Ginny fight awkwardness over the near-trade and their near-kiss, as Mike’s ex-wife and the fake Mark Zuckerberg vie for their attention. Blip and Evelyn fight for...why were Blip and Evelyn fighting again? Oh, the stupid stuff with the restaurant and the con-artist brother and Amelia. Yeah, let’s ignore that.

Two-Strike Approach: Miami Goes Bullpen Heavy

1

Cat Garcia

Kenley Jansen may be the key to the Marlins' plans for 2017, but do they have a fallback option in place?

The 2016 Marlins faced one of the most difficult seasons in recent memory, as the sudden death of Jose Fernandez in a tragic boating accident left a scar on the team, the city, and all of baseball.

In the wake of Fernandez's death on September 25, the future of the Marlins' rotation was on no one's mind and rightfully so. In those moments we must remember that baseball is simply a game, a sport, a job, a hobby. It's comprised of human beings who have a purpose, a story, and a life beyond the diamond. No one should have been asking baseball questions.

The Rockies are itching for more power at Coors Field, the Nationals are getting less picky about their closers, and the Padres are weighing their shortstop options.

Rockies determined to find a place for Trumbo

Even if it means shifting newly-acquired infielder/outfielder Ian Desmond to an outfield-only role, apparently. After striking a five-year, $70 million deal with Desmond on Wednesday, the Rockies still appear to be gunning for veteran slugger Mark Trumbo, writes Bob Nightengale of USA Today. That could lead to a potential logjam at first base, where Desmond is reportedly expected to hold court after making the switch from shortstop to left field/center field in 2016.

Retrospective Player Valuation: Mixed League Pitchers

1

Mike Gianella

Play without an ace at your own risk.

Welcome to my fourth annual look at retrospective player valuation at Baseball Prospectus. Over the next few weeks, I will be writing a series of articles examining how players performed from a fantasy perspective in 2016. This is the sixth article in a series of six. The first four articles in the series focused on NL-only and AL-only leagues. The final two posts examine mixed leagues, with this article examining pitchers.

Before I dig in, here is a brief description of the charts below. (If you have been reading along for the entire series, note that there are some changes for the mixed league articles).
