I don't know why this line cracked me up "The dreaded Platinum Sombrero for Gettys". Probably makes me an ahole

Hi Alex, You have me thinking about <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=56197">Danny Duffy</a></span>. When you say strand rate are you referencing his LOB%? Looking at Fangraphs his 2016 LOB% was listed at 80% when the league average is around 70-72%. The "LOB% explanation page" notes that pitchers with a high K rate can maintain above average LOB%s. My question is how high does a pitcher K% need to be to maintain a high LOB%? Duffy's K% was almost 26% for 2016, which the below link classifies somewhere between great and excellent. Another question, do you think his K% is sustainable? Seems to me a lot hinges on this Thanks for provoking the thoughts http://www.fangraphs.com/library/pitching/lob/ http://www.fangraphs.com/library/pitching/rate-stats/

I Read Eno's piece on Fangraphs regarding Castellanos' launch angles. Curious if you've read this and what you make of it.

Noticed on the Glendale Roster the Dodgers are only sending 4 guys while the Astros are sending 8. In the past I have seen each team sending 6 guys. Interesting...

I am surprised to see <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/player_search.php?search_name=Jose+De+Leon">Jose De Leon</a></span> listed in the honorable mentions. I haven't seen him play this year, but I've read the scouting reports and followed the box scores. He seems to be in the midst of an adjustment period in AA right now. What are the odds he's 1) ready for the show and 2) given an opportunity this year?

Imagine a mock draft where percentages are assigned to each player for every pick and they must sum to 100% for each player. For example, 1) <span class="teamdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/team_audit.php?team=ARI" target="blank">Arizona Diamondbacks</a></span> Swanson 58% Tate 19.75% Fulmer 19.75% Jay 1.25% Whitley 1.25% 2) <span class="teamdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/team_audit.php?team=HOU" target="blank">Houston Astros</a></span> Swanson 42% Bregman 29% Rodgers 29% And so on and so forth Essentially each individual pick would need to sum to 100% and each player's total across picks would also need to sum to 100%.

This is the saddest day since Up and In had its final podcast. That podcast piqued my interest in baseball, bringing it to a new level. It wouldn't be long before I subscribed to BP, and eventually became obsessed with following minor leaguers, taking trips to AZFL and Spring Training. You will be sorely missed. Best of luck with the Cubbies, Jason. I am genuinely happy to see your dreams are coming true, both professionally and with your personal life.

If I was a betting man, I would say it's more likely the Nationals get rid of Matt Williams than Bryce Harper.

Hi Doug, I realize this is pretty much impossible to guess, but gun to your head what would be your expected MLB return date for Jose Fernandez? When would you predict he makes his next MLB start?

Jose Fernandez had a 1.99 2nd half FIP on fan graphs.
