I remember Tony LaRussa talking about Tom Seaver saying that all pitches are not pitched equally. Towards the end of Seaver's career he wouldn't throw as hard the entire game so he could save a little when he needed to reach back and grab a little extra in certain situations . So the theory of Jose Fernandez always throwing harder because he was always pitching in tight situations makes perfect sense. And very well could have been a contributor to his arm injury. Great article.

Ummmm... okay? Fister to the Tigers for the exact package that the Tigers got for him? I mean, I would gladly do it. I'd love to get Fister back. But I think someone screwed up BIG time in this article on number four.

Actually, I lied. Mack did play in the big leagues. But I'm sure there as been a manager before that never had minor or MLB experince.

Yeah, it's happened a lot. Connie Mack was one.

That is one thing I do enjoy about the offseason is getting to enjoy the AFL games. People underrated how good and competitive those games are. I cannot wait to watch Byron Buxton and Soler. I am a big baseball history buff and there is a few channels on YouTube that have a plethora of old games to watch. So I am going to catch up and watch quite a few games on there, on top of I have subscribed to MLB.TV for the last three seasons and it's great when baseball is done. I will be also continuing to polish off a few more books. So far this year I read "The Yankee Years", Denny McLain's "I Told you I Wasn't Perfect" and I am currently reading Tony LaRussa's book. On deck after that will be Mickey Mantle's "My Favorite Summer 1956". Then I am going to read "October 1964". Good stuff as always, Paul.

Paul, great article . I'm new to this site, so you can call me a bit naive at this point butt what do the numbers in your slash line stand for? I am very familiar with the AVG/OBP/SLG slash but I've never saw a slash like .265-73-14-64-9 before. Obliviously .263 is AVG, and I'd imagine 64 is RBIs but I'm stumped on the rest. Thanks I'm advance.
