OT: Online Family Feud Quiz

Hello, friends. Each year, some friends and I put together a live Family Feud game where we create questions, gather answers, and then have a game-show style competition in my basement. The...

Frisbee writing for Baseball Prospectus??

13

No wonder he quit his day job---dude's blowin' up! And, by the way, this is some of his best work.

Rangers Catcher Max Ramirez DFA'd

10

Good minor league numbers, good major league numbers. I think this guy could be an upgrade over Eli.

Huff Gets a New Agent

10

Dude wants to get paid.

Barret Loux a Free Agent

41

This is the dude who failed a physical with Arizona. I wonder how bad his medical issues are.

Fangraphs: Giants Should Trade for DeJesus

7

This article basically agrees with the groupthink: trading Molina was a good move that opens a spot in the outfield for an upgrade, with DeJesus being an ideal player, depending on the cost in prospects.

GM Candidates: Subscriber Only

9

Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus has put together a list of his top 10 General Manager Candidates. Note that he did this last year, and because he decided not to include candidates from last year, a bunch of the more well-known names are absent (Kim Ng, etc).

Giants Scouting Japanese Pitchers

14

Looks like Shun Kakazu has been hard at work. Also, the bit about Casey Fossum in the main article is pretty funny.

Alex Gordon Sent to Triple-A

77

Clearly the Royals are not very high on him at the moment---I wonder what it would take to get him.

Posey's Catching Defense: Just Fine

13

"What about Buster Posey, you ask? About +3 in 2007, with solid running-game and pitch-blocking stats. He lost almost a full run relative to the average number of plays made by D-1 catchers. 2008 was better, at +5, negating half of basestealing attempts and saving nearly an additional two runs by blocking errant pitches. Again, though, he made fewer ball-in-play outs than average." WORST CATCHER EVER

Cool Fangraphs article on MadBum

46

Discusses both Madbum's recent performance, as well as the controversies surrounding his personal life. A good read.

BPro: Giants Top 11

81

Subscribers only, but you get some of the idea. The phrases "Pedro Sandoval" are used, as well as "light-tower power" with regards to Dominguez.

Fangraphs:Damon a Dead-Pull Hitter

7

Apparently, since 2002, Damon has hit a whopping 97% of his home runs to RF. Perhaps it isn't so bad that we missed out on him.

Urban: SP Todd Wellemeyer to Giants

Giants Sign RHP Kevin Cameron

20

Interesting dumpster dive. Had a good season for the Padres in 2007, had good minor league performances before that, and even with recent injuries, his K numbers haven't suffered.
