Jacoby Ellsbury signed a 7-year deal with the Yankees, which might mean Robinson Cano's days in the Bronx are numbered. Here's a random plan: 1. Sign Cano 2. Trade LaRoche, for org. depth if you...

2014 Overs and Unders, Part I

Prior to the 2012 season, I wrote a FanPost that proposed multiple over-under "bets" to make on Nationals players, and the team as a whole. I skipped the exercise in 2013, but have decided to do...

Zim's Bad Trends

Everyone knows that Ryan Zimmerman's production in 2009 and 2010 has not been matched in 2011 and 2012. Can we identify the reasons why? I'll just get into the numbers, starting with when he makes...

Harper's Saturday

+

Fangraphs article on whether Harper's five strikeouts on Saturday should be a concern. I'd like to add that through Sunday, Harper's 18.8 K% on the season ranks 120th among the 226 MLB players with 150 or more plate appearances in 2012. (150 PA is where the K% statistic stabilizes.)

Estimating Strasburg's 2012 Innings

Poll: Michael Morse and MVP

To clarify, this is not asking where you would put him, or where he deserves to finish, but where you think he will ultimately end up. (Other disclaimer: I know you can make a list in a FanShot,...

Nationals' beastly slugger Morse heads All-Underrated team

+

"Morse, the MVP of SI.com's All-Underrated Team, has become a 6'5", 230-pound predator in a baseball uniform. He leads Washington in batting average (.317, home runs (21), doubles (30), slugging percentage (.550) and OPS (.923) and has been baseball's most productive first baseman since replacing Adam LaRoche, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in May, in the lineup. At the game's most star-studded position, Morse leads all his counterparts -- from Miguel Cabrera, Adrian Gonzalez and Mark Teixeira in the American League to Prince Fielder, Albert Pujols and Joey Votto in the National League -- with a 1.016 OPS while playing first."
