6 Transaction Analysis: Party at Encarnacion's by Emma Baccellieri
Today offers a selection of players who actually weren't bad, but also somehow never good enough.
Dreaming of new opportunities for commercial tie-ins, and the lowest possible expectations surmounted. Also, the aforementioned Kevin Bass Game.
On the 20th episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan hosts an all-star collection of BP writers in our first live episode! Listen in as Craig Goldstein, Patrick Dubuque, Jeffrey Paternostro, Emma Baccellieri, Kate Morrison, and Aaron Gleeman all share their thoughts on the major and minor moves as the deadline comes and goes. It's a must-listen!
A lifetime prepares Brandon Guyer for a single moment; the Giants are euphemized; and Craig Gentry overcomes your indifference.
The summer of 1997, as lived in a gas station sandwich shop; minor league team names reimagined; and the highlights of a baseball dictionary.
An umpire comes online, Charlie Blackmon gets an assist, and Joe Mauer grounds out to first base.
A 36-year-old starter debuts, eight things don't happen in the Home Run Derby, and Leonys Martin is a mason jar full of old rubber bands.
Kate rekindles some ballpark missed connections, Emma gazes at Michael Martinez and the Indians, while Trevor matches up Eric Young Jr. and destiny.
Emma wonders if Juan Samuel missed a chance to break a nonexistent rule, Mary follows a conveyor belt to its unnatural conclusion, and Matt relays some earthly sightseeing.
Emma writes some flash fiction, Kate tests you on your draft acumen, and Matt assigns representatives to all 30 teams.
Special Agent Cooper finds himself in the strange world of the New York Mets and Alex Cobb tries to master the grand slam reaction. Former teammates Chris Sale and Jose Quintana both struggle in their matchup, Deven Merrero has a shockingly big night, Trevor Bauer strikes out 14, and the Angels don't even need Mike Trout.
