I am sorry if this is the result of an accident or birth defect. Is something wrong with Urias' left eye or was he just squinting or recovering from blackeye? I'm not looking for pretty faces, I am concerned for a LHP with a left eye issue being able to hold runners. Thanks, -Coop!

But, "Positional assignments in the winter leagues aren’t as indicative of an organization’s plans as they are in the AFL because teams don’t have as much say on how their players are used in other countries, but it’s still interesting."

"When I saw Lindor play in person on Monday, it just felt like seeing something special". This is how I felt seeing Joe Mauer against Bowie. I had seen Jorge Posada, Manny Ramirez, Cliff Floyd and others in AA, but Mauer was special. Could you possibly rate by specialness those you have seen in person? Thank you, -Will

"We get so much stuff every day that my eyes almost tear up from reading it all." I read this concept over and over and can not help but to cringe that these "analysts" are doing analysis and themselves a tremedous disservice - our job is to deliver the right data to the right folks at the right time - it is not the DUMP data.

From On The Beat... Tigers second baseman/outfielder Ryan Raburn: "I give [Tigers manager] Jim Leyland credit for being willing to try something different. It would be easy to just leave Raburn in left field, but the Tigers have a better offense when he is playing second base. It makes their lineup longer, and the guy is a passable defensive second baseman."

Can you expand on the service time is service time idea with respect to Buster Posey. Posey was called up last year for 7 games but then kept on the farm to start 2010. It was spun as an opportunity to continue learning, but it was likely an attempt to prevent Posey from reaching Super2 status, correct? But his clock started in 2009. Was the deferred start to his 2010 MLB season simple to reduce service time accrued? Could this also have been achieved by sending him down midyear or shutting him down at the end of July?

2-1 is 50%, 1 chance in 2 that X occurs. 100-1 is a longshot because there is only a single chance out of 100 trials that the event will occur. Therefore 500-499 means there are 499 chances out of 500 trials in which this event will occur - pretty close to a sure thing. Ore am I whey off?
