"I think that one of the most important things we have to do in the front office and also with the staff is at the end of each season really critically analyze the previous years team. So when we sat down at the end of the '09 season we felt strongly that we were better than an 84 win team and now it didn't help us in '09 but it certainly helped us in shaping our thought process this off-season."

-- Andrew Friedman on the 2010 season

These snippets from the FOX Twitter accounts. First, Rosenthal: Branyan down to #Indians, #Rays. #RedSox no longer factor. Indians still favorite. And Morosi: #Nationals #Reds #Indians made...

2010 DRB Player Profiles: Matt Moore, Dioner Navarro, Jeff Niemann, Carlos Pena, Fernando Perez, David Price, Aneury Rodriguez, Sean Rodiguez, & James Shields


For those who don't follow the DRB Twitter feed (shame on you), here's the new deal. We're 95% done with the annual. Right now, the word count is just shy of 45,000. Last year's was 26,000 words....

OPP's Shirts


Been a while since I linked there, but they might be the best basketball site on the network. They've now launched a shirts store, albeit with only one shirt.

Tom Tango Now Consulting with the Jays


Love Tom, but I hope they ignore his advice.

The 2010 Bullpen: Best in Rays' Team History?


Such a distinction would've went to the 2009 pen, but they went from a 3.9 FIP through late June to a 4.48 FIP overall. Thank you, September and October. Here are the best relief corps in...

More Thoughts on Joaquin Benoit


Joaquin Benoit's career FIP is 4.5 through 590 innings. That's not too impressive for a reliever, but therein lays the caveat. 55 of Benoit's 273 appearances were starts. Benoit failed...

DRB Quality Control

I'm going to shamelessly steal this concept from LL after some constructive comments in Slowinski's thread. Use this as a town hall meeting of sorts. What do we need to do in order to achieve the...

2010 DRB Player Profiles: Todd Glaesmann, Jeremy Hellickson, & J.P. Howell

J.D. Drew Critics


Question of the day: would anyone in this market write something like this?

2010 DRB Player Profiles: Winston Abreu, Willy Aybar, & Grant Balfour


First, an explanation. These are usually found in the Annual. This year, however, EminenceFront put far more time into the design than he should've. They look way better than the text-heavy,...

Tampa Bay Rays Invite Tim Beckham, Nevin Ashley, Heath Rollins, J.J. Furmaniak, Angel Chavez, and Craig Albernaz to Spring Training


Ashley and Albernaz serve as organizational soldiers/backstops for mass spring bullpen sessions. Rollins is probably a future pen arm. Interesting to see him get the invite, but wouldn't read too...

Tim Lincecum Signs Multi-Year Deal


This is an imperfect comparison for a number of reasons. Service time when signing, perceived market value, and track record of success not being the least of which ... but it's for fun...

Riggans to the Mets


He wasn't particularly good at much, but still likable. That's good enough to start on the Mets.
