I don't know why this line cracked me up "The dreaded Platinum Sombrero for Gettys".
Probably makes me an ahole
You had me at Visalia, Steve
Was there not enough interest in Denver?
I LOVE THE MLU. SO happy it's back. :)
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
Been avoiding <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=58136">Andrew Cashner</a></span> for eons! ;)
Cannot stop looking at the bold "i" in the <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=107646">Zack Collins</a></span> writeup! Inserts overly enthusiastic wink emoji
Great article Sam
Puig slashing .481/.548/.926 in 7 games (31 <span class="statdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=PA" onmouseover="doTooltip(event, jpfl_getStat('PA'))" onmouseout="hideTip()">PA</span></a>) since his demotion to AAA ^_^

I Read Eno's piece on Fangraphs regarding Castellanos' launch angles. Curious if you've read this and what you make of it.
Any consideration for S. Brault, D. Vogelbach, or J. Schultz?
Hey Jeffrey, who would you take over Reyes? Giolito? Curious who else
Nice article. I really enjoy these sort of aritcles that provide some insight into front office decision making
RIP Kevin, inserts starting to cry emoji
Good luck Jeff. Nice work on all these minor league updates!
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...
Victor robles! BOOM!
I was wanting to believe Swanson was in Reno so badly so I could see him in CO Springs. #starvedCObaseballfans
The other Jose de Leon??
This is the first comment I have ever given a minus 1
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.
1) <span class="teamdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/team_audit.php?team=ARI" target="blank">Arizona Diamondbacks</a></span>
2) <span class="teamdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/team_audit.php?team=HOU" target="blank">Houston Astros</a></span>
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%.
AND <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=68520">Kris Bryant</a></span>...stole a base.
Ha ha ha (all your base our belong to us voice)
I imagine this said in doug's voice's imitation of the Guinness commercial.
A bit surprised how low Oswald Arcia is on the 25 and under list.
What would happen if you were to ignore the instructions and select 14 players?
I enjoy Zambrano's 2003 stat line where he lead the league in BB, HBP, and Wild Pitches. The triple crown!
Bell was pretty poor defensively from what I saw. (Non scout opinion)
This article made me laugh numerous times. Was it supposed to?
Interesting article, keep up the good work
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.
I was really hoping Tapia or Dahl would be on the Salt River Roster.
If I was a betting man, I would say it's more likely the Nationals get rid of Matt Williams than Bryce Harper.
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?
I would love to see Nelson in the majors.
Heathcliff Slocumb for Derek Lowe and Jason Varitek
Can I put in a Kris Bryant request for one of these write-ups?
Thoroughly enjoyed this
More of these please. Love em
I love Jose Fernandez
Funniest thing I have read in some time
I love your team. 6 for Teheran is a steal IMO.
Did Cliff Lee get considering for top current major league command?
Nice article Russell
I am book marking this article to read it later when I'm having a terrible day.
No respect for Matt Adams
I read three sentences of the piece and skipped to the comments.
That makes sense. Can't wait to see what next year holds for him.
Jose Fernandez had a 1.99 2nd half FIP on fan graphs.
