My name is Peter. One time when I was a child, my mother gave me a bunch of toys. I took the toys up to my room and I broke them all. I came back down stairs and my mother said,
"Peter, how do you like your new toys?".
I responded, "I broke them".
Perplexed, she asked, "Why did you break your toys?".
I replied, "Because I don't play".

Possible explanations for the 2011 offensive spike so far

5
  1. Small sample size.
  2. Early games being played in more hitter-friendly parks.
  3. Quality of pitching hasn't been as good with some key guys on the DL.
  4. Change in batter and/or pitcher approach.
  5. Change in equipment.

Neyer: Rangers' Choice About Neftali Feliz Seems Easy

2

In Feliz's case, the question really isn't whether he's more valuable as an excellent reliever or an excellent starter. We know the answer to that one. The question is whether he will be an excellent starter. Because if he's just a good one -- or, heaven forbid, he gets hurt -- the equation changes quite a bit.

Morosi: Tigers won't alter alcohol policy

8
"Miguel Cabrera, the Detroit Tigers superstar first baseman, has had two high-profile incidents of alcohol abuse in the last 16 months. He is currently in a treatment program for what officials are calling an alcohol addiction. However, his team has no plans to end its policy of making alcohol available to team personnel in the clubhouse after regular-season home games. "We don’t have any changes," Dave Dombrowski, the club president and general manager, said in an interview Wednesday. Dombrowski declined to say whether team officials discussed the possibility of a change." The fact that teams still supply alcohol to players and staff after games strikes me as one of the dumbest things in baseball, and that the Tigers will continue to do so even though one of their players has a serious disease that the presence of alcohol in the clubhouse can only exacerbate strikes me as even dumber. I understand that Cabrera probably doesn't wanted to be treated any differently despite his illness--just as someone with diabetes wouldn't--but the policy of serving alcohol after games seems very backwards and foolish to me, in general and especially in this case. Discuss.
