I read somewhere that Ethan Martin wasn't on the 40-man roster, and so could get grabbed in the Rule V draft. True or false? (Well, it's true that I read it -- was the information correct?)

For the record, the video itself has him as "Yoenis" *and* "Yoennis", so let's just call it an homage.

Yoenis Cespedes could jump over Dustin Pedroia.

If the rumors that the Astros wanted Wilin Rosario as part of a Wandy Rodriguez package from the Rockies are true, then whither Jason Castro?

Not to be snotty, but ... does it? How bad does hitter N+1 have to be in order to make walking hitter N a viable strategy? I guess what I'm saying is that if there are times when an intentional walk doesn't increase the offense's chance of scoring (and I think we all agree that there are such situations -- #8 hitters in NL lineups, etc.), then the corollary to that would have to be that there is at least something to the notion of lineup protection.

Thank you, Christina. Sometimes, I think I'm the only person in the world who ever saw "Hollywood Shuffle".

Forgive me for repeating a story, but ... it bears repeating. October 25, 2005, I was the happiest boy in the land. The Sox had just won game 3 of the World Series, making what had honestly seemed impossible for generations now within reach. And what a game, huh? Geoff Blum with a 14th-inning HR, another run scampers home, and Mark Buehrle (!) comes in to nail down the win that would get us 1 win away from the first Chicago World Series in living memory. Later that night, the online dating service I was using matched me with an amazing woman. Long story short: she's now the lovely and talented Mrs. Audhumla, and I got to learn what happiness really is.

True, but only if Pujols agrees to take his talents to South Beach and join him and J-Ups...

A rousing success, Steph -- congrats! And thanks to John & Christina for joining us; felt like hanging out at a bar with your pals, watching the games and laughing too loud. In other words, a perfect Saturday night! -- Ben

Please, please tell me you're gearing up for the Marlins resigning (re-signing, or resign-ing, whichever seems more appropriate) of Armando Benitez. First thing I thought when I read that was, "Which historical figure is Christina going to compare *this* to?"

Likewise, I'll certainly make an effort to be there, depending on when/where it is. (The "when" may be the bigger factor; I work for the city, so Heaven only knows what my schedule's going to look like in 2.5 weeks.) For what it's worth, I'm in the far NW corner of the SF valley, so none of the mentioned sites are remotely nearby. But, as has been mentioned, there isn't *anything* that's convenient to everybody in greater LA.

There are things we can analyze numerically and come to a reasonable conclusion on. And then there are things that we merely have to accept on faith. For me, one of those "accept on faith" things is that Paul Konerko is the slowest professional athlete currently earning a salary anywhere in the world. I'm convinced he could lose a footrace to a Yokozuna.

April 15, 1984. White Sox lose a 2-1 game to the Yankees in 10 innings. Nothing surprising there, except for how the Sox scored: on the back end of a Ron Kittle-Greg Luzinski double steal. Yes, Greg Luzinski (my all-time baseball hero) has a steal of home on his resume. http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYA/NYA198404150.shtml

Joe, not to be difficult, because opinions are opinions and everyone's entitled to their own. Cool deal, fair enough. But, if you're waffling on an OF in the NL, how about the guy who ... just yesterday ... you said was "Top 12" and who you were "irrational about ... at a .97 Adam Jones level", and who, not coincidentally, is hitting at a 306/382/612 level thus far this season? If you tell me he's in the "group of comparably valued players with limited track records", I guess I'll believe you, but ... what's a 22-year-old gotta do?

I\'ve got a request that would seem to be fairly simple to do: allow Team Tracker to show whether a batter is lefty/righty/switchy and a pitcher is lefty/righty, so dynasty league users (like me!) can plan ahead.

I was a little confused by Francona last night as well, letting the game end with Alex Cora at the plate in the 12th. I know that we heard all about how Sean Casey was the last bat left on the bench and all that, but if you\'re not going to use Casey there (vs. a righty \"reliever\" when you need an extra-base hit to tie the game), then ... why is he on the post-season roster?
