Looks like <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=37052">Matt Holliday</a></span> has the highest launch angle (42.6') on a home run this year. Judge's from last night was 30.7' (269th highest on a <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> this season).
Inadequate demand, maybe, but not "no demand." Hope you'll give us another chance.
"Whom" to Watch?
<span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=57556">Giancarlo Stanton</a></span>'s home run off <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=45613">Justin Verlander</a></span> is receiving due attention, but <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=57905">Anthony Gose</a></span> hit one even farther later in the game.
Will you incorporate these metrics into the statistics that appear in the 2016 annual?
They also let <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=52344">Kris Medlen</a></span> walk. But sure, <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=60611">Ian Krol</a></span>.
"He believes innings lasting north of 25 pitches are problematic, and specifically, he’s a proponent of using situational leverage to approximate situational stress and injury risk. Conte didn’t publish data in support of those notions, but they make some intuitive sense, and Conte’s not exactly incentivized to spill his guts about these issues if he doesn't believe in them. I suspect the effect is slightly overstated (and thus, that Twitter’s reaction was slightly overzealous), but it’s likely real."
Should we read you to disagree with your colleague's recent assessment of the influence of leverage in this context? (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=27517)
"What's the best way to confuse a hitter?"
"If Chapman and Scherzer switched roles, they'd probably pitch a little differently than they do now on account of the role. ...But the best guess that we can make is that, overall, they'd be about as effective as they are in their current role."
If the Reds believed Chapman could be as effective in a starting role as he has been in a closing role, why wouldn't they be using him as a starter and have him pitch 160-180 effective innings per season, rather than just 60-80?

Was hoping for a "breach a Stroh's," but I guess it isn't technically the weekend yet, you guys.
Enjoyed reading this, particularly after seeing some of Rizzo's personality on Garbage Time last week.

Was looking at this subject last night and noticed that, from at least one perspective (percentage change in total bases stolen), the Tigers' shift in base stealing between 2013 and 2014 was the largest of any team's season-to-season change at least in the last ten years by a fair margin.

We focus first on the bread, but the answer is in the meat. Tubular meat is the distinguishing feature. Tony was so close.
After reading about its virtues for years, BP readers suddenly find themselves coping with a Parks-adjusted reality.
