Dickey has been traded along with Thole and an unnamed prospect for D'Arnaud, Syndergaard, Buck, and an unnamed prospect. The deal won't be finalized until/unless the Jays are able to extend...

Josh Beckett struggles - and a suggested rebound

Beckett has been in the media for a lot of the wrong reasons. Since he is struggling his abrupt personality with the media means far more negative exposure than for other struggling stars. Lets...

Justin Upton - possible landing spots and trade packages

It appears the Diamondbacks are pushing hard to move him. This doesn't mean they will be giving him away. His value is very high with over 3 years of control, but there are some questions of...

Spring notes - Matt Moore, Pineda, Trout, Feliz, Bard

Matt Moore had terrible command last start and some, including myself, wondered whether he was hurt or sick. While he won't appear in a box score for another 4 or 5 days he did pitch yesterday. He...

What we have seen so far in camp - Toronto Blue Jays

Dustin McGowan - what everyone is talking about is he might make the starting rotation after multiple injuries. What's more important is how good his stuff has been looking. But the biggest news?...

Morrow - mini scouting report

I watched him pitch against Pittsburgh and was a little surprised by what I saw. Since I had nosebleed seats I couldn't see much of the pitch movement.   What I saw:   The Good Obviously the...

Andrew Miller - A Resurgence

It was expected Miller would be the number one pick but he fell to the Tigers due to signability as well as other reasons. The Tigers were agressive with him and he only pitched 78 innings in the...

Bautista - most feared hitter in the AL right now?

I know there was a lot of skepticism of him. Whether it was implying it was all PEDs or a lucky year people were willing to write him off.   I don't believe he's as good as he has been playing. In...

Risers and Fallers due to park or level assignment

Some players will go to parks that are favourable or unfavourable to them. Or leagues. And of course some players will be repeating or pushed agressively.   For fantasy purposes there is nothing...

K-Rod tears thumb doing WWF impersonation

Two months of Cliff Lee

I would like to clear a few things up.   It is not 2 months of Cliff Lee. It would be 3 months for the rest of the season. But it's really 4 months as they are aiming for the playoffs (anyone...

Porcello - revisited

I will try to write-up some reviews on the players I wrote scouting reports on earlier in the year. I was going to start with Matusz but what with Porcello getting optioned I changed my schedule.   ...

Positional value - a myth?

I believe in defensive value. When a player is better than average at his position he will give you positive value and when worse than average he will give you negative value. I even believe...

2010 Rebound candidates - version 1

Francisco Liriano - I don't think there is a pitcher in all of baseball with the upside of Liriano. He had an electric fastball and an unhittable slider before the surgery. Now his changeup is...

Tim Lincecum

I don't think there is a need for a report on him but there was some interest.   Fastball Velocity averaged 92.5 I think. A drop from 2008. From watching it he was 93-95 early in the game and then...

OK, gotta be honest here. I have no idea how the heck I'm going to do this one. 10+ IP in the majors is way too little to evaluate a pitcher. And reading reports on him are so conflicted. Then...
