WBC: The US Is Sending Its Best Team!

So the narrative surrounding the USA World Baseball Classic team is that it’s not worth it because of all the players missing. They say "there’s no Verlander, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay,

Mark Reynolds Compared Favorably to Babe Ruth!

+

Dave Schoenfeld shows how increased power usually leads to increased strikeouts and compares Reynolds to Ruth. Granted, he says that it's not a direct comparison but it's not just negative... so progress?

A Potential Explanation for Carroll's Failure

This is theorizing, obviously the problems might go a lot deeper than what I am saying, and while much ink has been spilled I don't know if anybody has really thought about this: Is Liverpool...

Zambrano for Figgins?!

146

Figgins has 17 mil over two seasons compared to Zambrano's 18 mil over one. Cubs save a million and they need a 3b. Thoughts? P.S. I'm not advocating the Cubs do it (Figgins seems done to me) just something thrown out there that doesn't look as crazy at second glance as it does at first.

ESPN article on FSG

Nice little article on what Liverpool is trying to do in the transfer market and maybe, hopefully create some sabermetric magic.

Carlos Pena's name still hasn't shown up on the waiver wire, those clubs report. But teams that have spoken with the Cubs say they seem no more interested in moving Pena now than they were in July, unless they get something back that makes it worth their while. We were told by one source with numerous friends on the Cubs: "That's a bad clubhouse. And he's one of the few guys holding it together."

So that would explain the Cubs reluctance to get rid of Pena but also something more troubling. Is the lack of team chemistry from losing? Quade? Any other reasons? How worried should we be (for the future, this year is obviously over)? Jayson Stark column at ESPN.com

Sam Fuld Becoming Rays Legend

41

He's getting a cape night in May (it was supposed to be a Manny Ramirez bobblehead night) and he's been ripping through pitching.

Agger out for Season

Also Johnson's out a month. Bad tidings.

Fergie Suspended!

+

Fergie out 5 games after his remarks about Martin Atkinson. It's about time he got suspended for the things he says about refs. Wenger next?

Rick Reuschel to the HOF!

In this blog post, Joe Posnanski makes a pseudo case for Reuschel in the HOF by comparing to HOF contender Jack Morris. There are also comments saying that Reuschel is better than believed in a lot of ways.

ESPN bashes Hendry

16

For all you haters ESPN (at least baseball propectus) agrees with you. Two notes: 1. I'm not a Hendry hater, just thought this should be posted here. 2. It's an insider article. So if you're not an insider I don't think you can access it, sorry.
