Sorry to say but WGAF about this story or as I read it ( probably biased of course ) these poor professional athletes. They make the big money, they can pay the taxes. I'm sure all, why even the journeyman athlete, have the ability to find tax professionals through their agents or club to defer as much taxes as possible....all totally legal of course, as that is how the tax code is presently written. Save this kind of story for the winter months, or do a story on how the minor leagues set up by the clubs pay a pittance.

Sort of recall <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=21981">Curt Flood</a></span> having trouble hitting his first three years with the Cardinals, each yr worse, then in the 4th it all came together. Forget why, but think mng <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=23275">Solly Hemus</a></span> wanted Flood to do things his way.

It would be interesting to survey those in the thick of it to know where they stand. Or would they just give the old saw that "There's no I in team."

Put <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/player_search.php?search_name=Pete+Rose">Pete Rose</a></span> into the hall and that could be an inspiration to players that singles matter, that hustle and ....err...then again, maybe it be best to leave things as they are.

Perhaps the warmer weather....or could it be the Election Cycle Effect. Note <span class="statdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/glossary/index.php?search=HR" onmouseover="doTooltip(event, jpfl_getStat('HR'))" onmouseout="hideTip()">HR</span></a>'s went up across the board in each national election yr, except one ( 2008) and that was only in the first category. This year blame Trump!!

I ck'd out another site's prognostication I have used and in a 2 wk sample ( Yes SSS ) had similar findings....those given high marks had less overall W's than those with lower probabilities. Likewise, I stopped as I didn't make the time to see if it continued or if the site's picks correlated to outcome predicted.

Guess you need a mitt that can frame the article better.

You could say the weekly roster was tried, by none other than FB great Ron Shandler, with a monthly game at his site Shandler Park. Started late in '14 season. You picked a team that you had control of for a month, and randomly put in a league of 10. All for $$ Sadly, it lasted not even 1 yr. Shandler tried to tweek it this yr offering I think it was bigger payout, with higher pay in, but couldn't make a go of it.....last 2 months of '14 and shut the door by August of this yr. What I find disheartening is that every tout seems to be in the pocket of some company, and this year I feel they skew more info to the DFS players, as opposed to those just playing FB. I haven't played DFS, putting all my time on my seasonal game. I have a mild desire too try, but if I'm going to gamble would rather go to the nearby track and try my luck on a trifecta bet.

Perhaps another means ( or as an added assist ) of detecting the hot hitter would be to use Biorhythms. Then again, it's been labeled by some as pseudoscience.

Mulder obviously knows what he's talking about for himself, and thinking about: "the need to save sequences of pitches for later in the game and to think about how you're going to get a guy out four innings from now and how the 1-1 pitch that you throw here in the second will influence the 2-0 pitch you throw in the sixth." Wonder if that was the case w/ old <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/player_search.php?search_name=Walter+Johnson">Walter Johnson</a></span> back in the day, or did he just rare back and chuck that old ball?

When I first saw the article was about the Cards and had the title "The old devil magic finds new forms" I thought, wow, BP is faster than the NY Times in getting the computer hacking story.

Ah come on, you've just ruined all the baseball movies for me. I thought that old tap on the butt after the little whisper in the ear made for the timely hit that scores the runner from 2b.

Like the insight, and the writing style...."Cries of the “Yips” or “Mental Block” follow, and suddenly we imagine that Lester has the mental strength of a tired 6-year-old at the end of a 10-hour excursion through Disneyland." Perhaps you have a book in you ala Pat Jordan?

Not sure how long the following has been going on in MLB.....but after all regular games and through the WS ( well, not the last winning game!!!) isn't it now de riguer for all the players in the dugout on the winning team to take the field and walk past their fielding 9, giving out congratulatory High 5's. Hockey, I believe, is the only team sport that after the final game in a championship series BOTH teams line up and shake each other's hands....always seen after the initial revelry wares off at the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Final, believe also in all the final series games leading to the Cup Final. That's not seen in baseball.

Agree on Farmer & Jackson. Ed has a HR call that is so calm you don't know which team just put one over the fence, and heaven help us if it turns the game around, you'd never know. Farmer has a sort of pleasant voice, but his approach is so lackadaisical. Don't want to listen and I like the Sox.

I think the art of apology is somewhat inherent in the Japanese culture. In case things don't get better and the shame for Masahiro becomes too unbearable Yankee fans, no all baseball fans, can be glad that the ancient form of Seppuku has for the most part ceased.
