Ben and Sam talk to Mike Fisher, the baseball coordinator of Moneyball and the new Fox series Pitch, about how he makes baseball look realistic on screen (and what he might have missed).

The Mets win a game and move ahead in the wild card race, and more from Thursday's action.

The Thursday Takeaway
For selfish reasons, I am happy that the Mets won last night. I am not a Mets fan, at least not consciously, although I do follow them somewhat closely due to having many friends in the writer community who can often be found wearing blue and orange hats.

As the Red Sox prepare to clinch the AL East crown, their shortstop's slump looms large in their October outlook.

While the division races get clear, the wild card race is left to the losers, and more from Wednesday's action.

The luckiest and unluckiest teams of the year and the era.

In my last article, I introduced a Luck Index, a Franken-stat that combines team record in one-run games, pitchers’ strand rate, batting with runners in scoring position, and strength of schedule to derive a measure of luck. It’s centered around a Luck Index of zero with a standard deviation of 25.

The Everett AquaSox played at Safeco Field, as two brands of baseball displayed an unusual Venn diagram.

It happened because sometimes in Everett it rains in September, and the night Game One of the Northwest League’s Northern Division title series was supposed to be played was one of those sometimes. The AquaSox couldn’t play the Spokane Indians as scheduled. Instead, they met on a home field, of sorts, a few days later, skipping southward and forward in time to play at Safeco on a cool Friday evening. And it was baseball, just not baseball as I was used to seeing it there.

An Agent's Take: On Tebow

18

Joshua Kusnick

Tim Tebow is a longshot who is taking the spot of another longshot.

I woke up Monday morning to the sounds of helicopters and news trucks here in St Lucie, Florida. The New York Mets’ instructional league started this week. I’ve had clients attend in the past, but this year none of my clients are going. By now you know one player who is, though: Tim Tebow, the former Heisman-winning quarterback turned NFL quarterback impersonator. The Mets signed him a couple weeks ago for $100,000 after he performed at a scouts workout—have you heard about this? Have you heard that Donald Trump is running for president? Have you heard that beef comes from cows? I have all sorts of hot news scoops.

Wil Myers' severely cold second half has us wondering, once again, whether he'll ever be a superstar.

September call-ups might give Bruce Bochy an 11th reliever to call on, but they also make dreams come true for minor leaguers on the bubble.

After nine years, 1,100 innings, and three trips to the Mexican Winter League, 31-year-old knuckleballer Eddie Gamboa heard the magic words: “You’re going to the big leagues.” The Rays were prescient enough to film the big moment, and if his shocked expression, tears, and heartfelt hugs for the coaching staff didn’t reveal just how much the call meant to him, his words took care of the rest. “It's something you dream of,” Gamboa said. “When it becomes a reality, it kind of blows your mind.”
