On trading Bronson...

  As much as I like what Arroyo's done here, I think he's the guy you have to trade if you want to make a run this season.  Trading prospects for FA's-to-be would be unwise, as this is still a...

Fun with numbers: Dunn with runners on base

I've long held the opinion that Dunn's low numbers with RISP have nothing to do with Dunn's ability, and are in fact the result of pitchers refusing to throw strikes with men on base.  I've...
