LSB's favorite player: Elvis Andrus

Well, it turns out my theory was correct because after 493 votes, Elvis Andrus has won the title of Lone Star Ball's favorite player for 2011. via i755.photobucket.com If Elvis looks slightly...

Lance Berkman pulls an Adam Dunn

10

Don't know if this has been mentioned in the comments somewhere, but Berkman apparently doesn't want to DH either. And still thinks he can play the outfield. Apparently playing NL baseball robs you of even more brain cells than watching it does.

Ramblings and retrospectives

As I begin, part of me wonders why I'm bothering with this. I know I don't have the words or prose that others posess to fully describe what this team went through this season or how I feel about...

10/11 Off Day Post

Ordinarily I wouldn't bother, but since it doesn't appear we're getting a morning post today I thought I'd leave you guys with a forum that isn't nearly 900 comments in length to yak it up in...

BTB ranks the teams by Equivalent Base Running Runs with pretty graphs. Dunno if anyone has linked this elswhere yet and I don't feel like looking, so apologies if this is old news. Anyway, according to this we're actually the second best best baserunning team in the AL this year. Way behind Tampa Bay, but way ahead of 3rd place Oakland as well. You sure wouldn't know that by watching the team, but I guess you can chalk that up as another testament to the inaccuracy of human perception. Apparently I owe Elvis, Julio and Gary Pettis an apology.

Smoak's splits

So I was looking through Smoaky's handy dandy Fangraphs splits page this evening, trying to find a little more hope in that .168/.286/.317 line and .273 wOBA / 61 wRC+. It's only 119 PA's, which...

Saturday night random OT post

Okay...

M's claim Tommy Everidge

Perhaps better known as that really fatass four-A first baseman who saw some time with the A's last year. This really isn't news, but neither is anything posted on Hicks or pitcher salaries.

Joe Posnanski tells us a Christmas story

1

I'm surprised nobody has linked this here before now, given all the Joe Pos fans on LSB. And if you're not a Joe Pos fan yet, you will be by the time you finish reading this, I promise.

Why can't they all be real newspaper ads like Roy's?

1

I know it really didn't happen, but this makes me wish there was more of a chance in Milton coming back here. How can you not root for a fellow with the balls to give the finger to Cubs fans? Makes me wonder what Rangers would tell 'em how he really felt...Kinsler? He dissed our fans real good and threw a temper tantrum every time he popped out last year. Hanks on his way out, would he do something like that? Interesting to think about....

MLB Fanhouse ranks the best /worst play-by-play guys

1

Vin Scully is #1 (duh) while Hawk Harrelson is ranked as the worst of the worst (also duh). Josh Lewin is ranked 6th best, and, if you look at the poll results, is currently third in the voting behind Scully and the "other" category at the time of this posting.

Chip Caray canned

5

Sounds like good news, but the thought occurs to me: God help us if he somehow turns out to be Lewin's replacement.

Marlins GM says Josh Johnson is staying put

This was originally a fanshot, but since things are slower than molasses mixed with superglue lately, I figured I'd make it a fanpost so more people would see it.

Tex. asked Rays about Upton, part of off-season routine. No on-going talks. TB would need big return for talented CFer, even after down yr.

Hamilton might be done

So much for any thought of trying to pick him up from the A's.

Marc Hulett tears into Salty/Wash

+

Dunno if anyone has seen this (it's a day old) but Marc Hulett over at Fangraphs makes some harsh judgements here on Saltalamacchia's abilites and criticizes Ron for playing him 71% of the time over Teagarden. He has a point about Teagarden deserving more of a chance to showcase his abilities, but he seems to be unfairly kissing Salty off as a bust already while conveniently dismissing the fact that Tea has been just as bad/worse by spinning the SSS's.
