Reason #9,452 for firing Scioscia: Total misuse of Kole Calhoun

Anyone with some semblance of baseball knowledge would look at the batting record of Kole Calhoun and would conclude two things: (1) He has legit middle-of-the order power, with an ISO over...

So is Cody Allen THE closer?

Four saves in five days. Mighty impressive for a guy who has long been a premium arm in the bullpen. But is Allen THE close or will Francona juggle in Shaw and others on a regular basis? I realize...

I'm a Virginia alum and fan and a native of NYC who now lives not all that far from Lansing, just across the border in Ontario. The last time UVA was in the Sweet 16, it was 1995, I was 29, and I...

Unanswered questions: Who leads off? Has Victorino abandonned switch-hitting? . . .

With opening day approaching I thought it might be helpful to create a fanpost that tracks unanswered questions that will have some bearing on the season. My hope is that each reply lays out a...

Your toughest ACC game will be at Virginia - the sequel

As some of you may recall, on Jan. 21 I posted a prediction, provided a brief summary of ACC teams and a detailed look at the Cavaliers. Since Virginia has played quite a few games since, I thought...

Looking like the ACC conference may come down to UVA- Syracuse

That was one ugly game against Pitt but my Wahoos pulled out the dagger with a second left to win by three at the Pete. Not the best showing by either team though I think both defenses deserve some...

Orgy of Astro-themed articles today at Fangraphs, including one I wrote

There are pieces on Houston's bullpen, it's outfield with a focus on George Springer, and my personal favorite, one that argued Jason Castro won't regress much despite a high BABIP. I have a...

Your toughest ACC game will be at UVA

Let me start off by saying that I am a UVA alum and fan who grew up bleeding orange -- my Dad went to Syracuse and I grew up in downstate New York listening to every 'Cuse game on the radio before...

Why George Springer hasn't been called up -- the excuse of the day

First it was because he struck out too much until he inconveniently cut back his k-rate to a more respectful figure in AAA -- a lower k-rate then what Wil Myers produced in AAA this season in his...

Cruz should appeal - for his own good

It goes without saying the best thing for the Rangers Is for Cruz to appeal - the team is as close as a team can get to the dividing line between those that make the playoffs and those that do not. ...

Will Hosmer play OF when the Royal play the Mets in NY?

KC plays a 3-games series in NY starting Aug. 2 and I'm curious if Yost will move Hosmer to OF so Butler can play 1B. We could use the extra bats in the lineup but I have not heard Yost say...

How the Twins killed Oswaldo Arcia as a prospect

There we go again, Mr. Arcia. No sample size is too small for the Twins to send you down to AAA, again. You see, we don't want you to keep your relaxed stance at the plate that's been a key to all...

Is Kole Calhoun Ever Going to Get Respect?

I know Kole Calhoun lacks all the pedigree of a top prospect with no single tool a jaw-dropper. But how much more does he have to rake in the minors for people to seriously consider him a possible...

Welcome to the Big Leagues (again) Mr. Arcia

Oswaldo Arcia's brief cameo Monday was followed by an even briefer return to AAA -- the Twins recalled him Tuesday after Mastroianni was placed on the 15-day DL, Wilkins was brusied on the spine...
