Not Signing Drew Makes Sense, and I Hate It

Admittedly, I don't want to do this. Seeing Tejada at SS puts a sour taste in my mouth after last season, and seeing Omar Quintanilla manning the position really makes me want to puke. But with n...

Buy-low target: Nick Hundley?

First and foremost, I think the catching situation is going to stay the same next year; that is, Thole and Shoppach. Shoppach, as we all should know by now, is a good platoon player if you match...

Dillon Gee: Reason for Optimism

Bumped from FanPosts. This FanPost was originally published on March 9, 2012, but the predictions look good so far this season. I'll have more on Gee tomorrow, too. -- Chris --- Dillon Gee really...

Replacing Tim Byrdak

The injuries just keep coming. This time it's Tim Byrdak, who appears to be out at least through April with a torn meniscus in his left knee that requires surgery. Byrdak, as many of you know, was...

Lucas Duda's Offensive Skillset

Lucas Duda may not offer much on the bases or in the field, but one thing a lot of people feel confident in is his bat. Something clicked, power-wise, in the upper minors in 2010 and that in...

Chris Capuano and Men on Base

Chris Capuano got shelled last night: 4 IP, 8 hits, 6 earned runs. Yeah, it wasn't pretty. This isn't the first time either; hes given up 5 or more earned runs in 7 of his 27 starts, and only once...

What is Mike Pelfrey?

Mike Pelfrey, on the surface, looks like a solid mid-rotation starter. Hes boasted a sub-4.40 FIP each of the last three seasons, an FIP under 4 in two of them, all while also tossing at least...

"I think Jenrry needs to go down, I think he needs to work on his secondary stuff. I saw a huge improvement. I saw one of his starts at the end of last summer -- very, very, very impressed with him. I'd rather have him go down and work on his stuff and pitch his way into this spot." -Terry Collins on Jenrry Mejia Not that this is anything new, but man, isn't it so refreshing?

The yellow glow around Negativatran is all of the negativity that radiates around him. Jeff Francoeur and Alex Cora, despite having strong grission and leadership surrounding them, could not help but be damaged by Negativatran's dangerous negativity.

Vlad a Fit in Baltimore?

Blaine Boyer's Approach Versus Lefties

The Mets just signed reliever Blaine Boyer to a minor league deal. I've always been a fan of his, and I so decided to delve into his splits versus left-handed hitters over the last 3 seasons.

A Case for Kevin Millwood: Reliability Over Upside

All offseason I've mainly wanted upside over reliability. The main few guys that I really liked, off the top of my head, were Jeff Francis, Brandon Webb, and Brad Penny. All of these names are...

Brewers Acquire Greinke

The Brewers acquired ace righty Zack Greinke from the Royals, confirms ESPN's Buster Olney. Milwaukee will reportedly send shortstop Alcides Escobar, center fielder Lorenzo Cain, and pitching prospects Jeremy Jeffress and Jake Odorizzi to the Royals for Greinke, shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt, and $2MM.

Uggla Trade: Not a Total Disaster for Florida?

My Take On Some Rental Pitchers

Brett Myers: He could be a guy you get cheaper than Lilly and hes having a better year than him too (3.71 FIP vs Lilly's 4.70 FIP). Myers has always had decent stuff but the homeruns have really...

George Sherrill on outright waivers

Might be an interesting guy to look at. Hes been brutal this year, but the sample size of work isn't much, plus it was just last year in which he put up a nice 3.21 FIP in nearly 70 innings of work. Could be a solid find for practically nothing, and he'd be under team control next year too. EDIT: Okay, on 2nd thought, maybe not; hes pretty much just a LOOGY. I didn't even realize how woeful he is vs righties.

Sheetsao

Good news for Oakland: Ben Sheets is no longer tipping his pitches with his release point. On the left is his start on May 2nd vs Toronto (3.1 IP, 10 hits, 9 ER, 2 K), a start in which he was clearly releasing his curveball at a higher release point than his other pitches. On the right is his latest start, on May 8th vs Tampa Bay, a start in which he tightened his release point and got decent results: 6.1 IP, 4 hits, 2 ER, 8 K. If the image is too small, click here.

The Cubs Have Lost Their Minds

Don't fret, Carlos Silva or Tom Gorzelanny, because its neither of you who are headed to the Cubs' beleaguered bullpen.... its their most expensive starting pitcher, Carlos Zambrano. Doh.
