This is pretty cool. I have refused to pay for ESPN Insider in order to protest their horrific main site and as a result have not seen much of the content behind the pay wall, including Neyer and others who otherwise would have been worth the investment. I suspect I'm not alone in that Rob Neyer was my gateway drug into baseball analysis and sabermetrics. (Whether I owe him thanks for this is open to question...)

Michael Taylor

Phillies prospect Michael Taylor is making SAL pitching look silly, to the tune of .363/.438/.571/1.009 with 10 homers in 60 games at age 22. Oh, and he's 9 for 11 in steals. OK, so he's a little...

Much ado has been made of the notion that Jamie Moyer's acquisition was good for Cole Hamels' development. Comcast's John Marzano has discussed it on Post Game Live, ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick wrote...
