I thought the Nationals were the only team that had giveaways with so few items to giveaway.
<span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=21076">Ivan DeJesus</a></span> is back! According to his player card linked above, he's 63 years old.
The Nationals' mulligan should be to refuse to accept <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=23983">Davey Johnson</a></span>'s resignation.
Regarding the daily e-mail which linked to this article: I believe the staff is eagerly (rather than anxiously) awaiting these dates and events during the upcoming season.
It is not a big deal but there are numerous Serra High Schools in California.
The lesson to take from the 2013 Nationals: ya gotta hit.
In 1982, Luke Appling hit a home run at the age of 75. Of course, he did it against a 61-year-old Warren Spahn in an Old Timers' Game.
My nine-team NL-only league had taken all of them by the conclusion of our auction (except for Rendon, we can only draft players on a 25-man roster or the DL).
You cite the figure of nine percent of men having their appendix removed. What is the actual rate for professional baseball players? Due to their age and health, it might differ from the rate for the general public and affect the results of a cost-benefit analysis.
I couldn't hear Jason throughout the entire podcast. Perhaps if I had time list listen attentively in a quite room I could have made out what he was saying, but that is a luxury I don't have.
Otherwise, keep up the excellent work!
The audio kept dropping out when Sam was speaking. Perhaps the problem was on my end. Otherwise, an excellent show as usual.
The Nats beat the Mets, yet the former has a negative one-day delta and the former a positive one-day delta. Wacky stuff!
The only time I caught a ball at a professional game was during a Carolina League contest. I turned and handed the ball the the kids next to me, much to the delight of the crowd. Of course, the kid is my son and I reclaimed the ball out in the parking lot. It now sits on my bookshelf at home.
I've always tended to discount the idea that, over a long period of time, one team gets "up" to play another. However, starting in 1974, the Padres have played .495 against the Dodgers while only managing to play 474-ball against the rest of baseball. I'm not a statistician so I don't know if that is statistically significant given the number of games played (639 vs 6044). As an old Padres fan, though, I do find it pleasing.
As a baseball fan and the father of a teenage girl, I am delighted such a product is available.
They're already giving 110%!
I have to use it here. I'm not allowed on most golf courses.
Jonas Salk never had polio and yet he THOUGHT could reinvent the vaccination game!

No Matt Bush? He hasn't played above A ball in five years since being the number one pick by the Padres.
Is it too early to consider him a bust or was he "overdrafted"?
All this change, and yet Jim Riggleman still has a job.
He didn't. The piece is a hatchet job on Giamatti which reduces to the logical circle of "Giamatti gave Rose a stiff suspension because he had a vendetta against him as proved by the stiff suspension he gave him."
It is an attempt to make the man, in fact his very name, a joke. And if he is a joke then anything he did can be dismissed as a joke, too.
What a load of crap.
Begin with an evidence-less, anti-intellectual, ad hominem attack against a dead man, then make a false comparison.
Perhaps Rose deserved a harsher punishment for the 1988 incident because, unlike all the other men mentioned, he was a manager and not just a player.
Rose violated the only restriction in baseball that carries a "death penalty" punishment, then spent years denying it, then gave a half-assed, self-serving apology. This piece is nothing but an attack on Giamatti followed by several irrelevant comparisons.
One should avoid flowery language.
Like the rest of the sports media, UTK has an East Coast-bias. The first four entries are Mets! What an outrage!
In the future don't use the Navy Yard station when leaving Nationals Park. Take the 10-15 minute walk up New Jersey Avenue to the Capitol South station and hop on an empty train.
