Justin Morneau returns to the AL Central and Ike Davis returns to New York.
This year sucks for one of last year's most exciting pitchers.
Does the rarity of steals of home make them even more exciting, or just make all our lives dull and useless?
Andrew Miller doesn't need to waste pitches, which leads to some fun factory. THE WORDS "BABE FLATHEAD" ARE BURNED INTO YOUR PSYCHE.
It’s difficult to imagine the barbarism of our own childhood: the technological advances we hadn’t yet learned to need, the inefficiencies of our young lives. For my generation, it was an era of World Book encyclopedias, of wall-mounted telephones and Adrienne Rich poetry and travel alarm clocks. One wonders how we survived.

Of the dozens of baseball statistics out there, Win Percentage Added might be my favorite. It’s a lovably useless stat: entirely beholden to timing and fortune, it ignores ill-timed greatness and throws favor on the man at the right place at the right time. It has almost no predictive value, and carries a faint whiff of the hero worship of days past, the old men talking of clutch performance. It’s the sophisticated remake of the Game-Winning , a hack writer’s game recap in decimal form. As game stat, WPA isn’t particularly fair; in that sense, it’s the stat most like real life, when we’re measured by moments not of our choosing. RBI

The Yankees' strategy of throwing harder than any team in baseball is, surprisingly, not working.
After an unexpected but inspiring revival last year, Mark Teixiera is back in the doldrums. What's going on with the erstwhile superstar?
Standout arms (for good or ill) from this week, including, duh, Max Scherzer. Also Aroldis Chapman (good) and Luis Severino and Derek Holland (ill). Some nights nothing goes your way, including the manager.
Every close-knit group of friends will develop its own vernacular. Spend enough time with the same people and you’ll share enough experiences and stories that it doesn’t make sense to spell out the entire metaphor—you just quote the line from the movie everyone has memorized, and everyone understands.
Similarly, people who love baseball develop their own semi-secret language around the game—maybe not every Tom, Dick and Harry at the ballpark, but you’re enough of a diehard to read
Baseball Prospectus, so you know what I’m talking about. The vocabulary comes from old friends or coaches, or from indelible moments from the past, and every fan has his or her own unique set of idioms. Read the full article... The A's ace adjusts but struggles again, the Yankees hit bombs, Corey Kluber bombs, and the best Bad-Braves Fun Fact we heard yesterday.
The Monday Takeaway
When this season began, was Sonny Gray. Seven innings of one-run work on Opening Day paved the way for three more quality efforts, amounting to a 2.73 Sonny Gray four starts into his 2016 campaign. Then, on April 27 ERA th, the Tigers sent Gray to the showers after just two-plus innings. And while the right-hander bounced back to log seven innings six days later, the Mariners tagged him for 11 hits and seven runs during his time on the hill.

The Thursday Takeaway
A game that stays scoreless into the 10th sounds like a textbook example of a pitchers’ duel. This presumption gets a bit weaker when the teams in question are the Orioles, who had not scored in 12 innings heading into Thursday, and the last-place Yankees, who have hardly been a model of offensive capability this year. Regardless, keeping the scoreboard empty into extras is a feat, and both and Masahiro Tanaka looked sharp yesterday—particularly Gausman, who held New York to three hits with no walks over eight innings. Kevin Gausman
In the four years since Gausman was drafted, he’s been seen (among other things and in no particular order) as: a top prospect, a question mark, a disappointment, a popular example of every question around the Orioles’ pitcher development, and a young man painfully familiar with the road between Baltimore and Norfolk. Right now, he’s a back-of-the-rotation starter, and on Thursday, he was a very good pitcher. Read the full article...
