Meg analyzes the thoughts of eleven witnesses to an HBP, Holly wonders on the objectivity of journal-keeping, and Patrick creates a new form of fantasy baseball.

Another demotion to Triple-A for the former top prospect, but maybe this time is different.

When Opening Day starter and former third overall pick Mike Zunino was demoted to Triple-A Tacoma on May 5, a nation wondered aloud: Mike Zunino had an option left?

After a hurried minor-league prologue and a full 2014 season, the catcher has had opportunities each year to tour Tacoma’s beautiful Museum of Glass, the latest demotion coming off of a .167/.250/.236 start with the Mariners. It’s a disappointing regression for a player who looked as though he were kind of, sort of, maybe just barely figuring it out in 2016.

Rain (and other things) washes away a lot more of baseball history than we probably think.

Consider all the things you know about former All-Star and Rookie of the Year runner-up Jeffrey Leonard. Conjure his heavy-lidded frown into your mind. Remember his pejorative, self-accepted nicknames, HacMan and Penitentiary Face; summon the mental GIF of him loping around the bases on a solo home run, one flap down. Remember a man who spent 14 years in the major leagues and battled it to a draw.

Brady Anderson, meet Thomas Bayes.

This article is going to be a little bit difficult to me. As a Semi-Professional Baseball Expert, it’s my job to balance unfailing and valuable baseball omniscience with a certain level of openness and humility, one that conveys a willingness to learn and grow with the world. It’s a tricky proposition, and if I tend to succeed at either, it’s almost entirely toward the side of the latter. But there’s one facet of baseball that I don’t understand, that I’ve never understood, and it forces me to expose the real possibility of my ignorance. I’ve tackled it in multiple articles before, all of which were received with the warmest of apathy. But it’s a question of human nature, so it never really goes away.
