Jake Fox didn't get the memo either - oh wait. And Russell did note the the coaches will watch and see if the player is doing something different, which Jose seems to have done
A great read Russell, thanks!
Great article Lewie, and best of luck with your next venture! I'm sure you'll be great
I'm not sure if its good manners to link another site here, but a funny article about Morosi's prior MVP votes. If he's completely changed his mind about what matters for an MVP it would be great if he explained why: http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/09/16/jon-morosi-finding-new-ways-to-support-miguel-cabrera-for-mvp-depending-on-the-circumstances/
You're right - that sure was a bad MVP column! (Great article btw)
Great article Russell! I like the idea of relievers picking up 1 save per inning. Any chance BP could track these "Carleton Saves"?
"Free visits to the eye doctor for life"
Always a great read, thanks Russell!
It just means people keep giving negative reviews to your comments. "Inappropriate" is probably not the best way of thinking of it, "below the viewing threshold" i.e. "several people think the comment sucks" is closer
Do'h! You did say more than 20, sorry... and thanks!
Very interesting article - small correction, Paul Molitor went 20-for-20 stealing bases for the Blue Jays in 1994
I can say, without fear of hyperbole, that Alex Anthopoulos is the greatest GM ever to walk the Earth
Looking forward to your articles Max!
Great article - now I can't stop thinking about other ways to assign positions:
1) How about Capt Sisko at catcher, since his size, arm strength, and experience would all help? Presumably Jake would be comfortable working with him too
2) Col Kira moves to 2B, Bashir to SS, and Nog to LF. Even without baseball experience, Bashir's enhanced reflexes would make him a great SS
Also, poor jake must have had a heck of a pitch count, having pitched to something like 55 batters. It would be illogical to go to the plate hacking against a team without a bullpen.
This was a great read, thanks Clay!
I'll be glad when Christina is voting for the HOF!
Kudos for articles like these - for most of us we only see these transactions with 20/20 hindsight, its great to get a sense of how things felt at the time.
A great read Bob, thanks!
Always a good read John, as a NL writer do you only vote on NL awards? I'm still not sure how that works, thanks!
Good luck Will, I'm sure lots of folks will miss your column around here!
Agreed! I wonder if the team will skip the champagne/beer spraying altogether to support him.
I don't know that 511 wins could be broken, since the modern game is so different for pitcher's workloads. If a pitcher won 20 games each year for 25 years they would still fall short, and its no longer possible to pitch as much as Cy did (he had seasons with 400+ IP and 40+ starts).
I think the other old-time pitching records could not be broken for the same reasons - Old Hoss Radburns 59 wins (1884) and Will White's 680 innings pitched (1879)
DiMaggio's streak is very, very unlikely to be broken, but there's nothing inherently impossible about it, but the game has evolved in such a way that the 19th century pitching records are no longer touchable.
John Fogerty is perhaps the most incomprehensible singer ever, so nobody feel bad if you have trouble making out his lyrics. There's songs I've been listening to my whole life where I still have no idea what he's saying.
BTW Will, do you get a ROY vote?
Sorry to see that you're leaving Russell, but I hope it means good things for you. I've really enjoyed your writing - good luck out there!
Thanks very much for the insight into your ballot John, I always enjoy your column. I wish more HOF voters were as thoughtful and transparent as you.
Is it possible that a 34 year old player with a career OPS of ~830 could produce an 850-900 over the next 2-3 years? Yes. Is it likely? I'd think not. Very few players are able to improve by that much in their mid-30's, and there's a big difference between an 830 OPS and a 900.
