Dustin Ackley's Spring Stats concerning

7

Ackley is running an unsustainable BABIP of .486. Not uncommon in spring for BABIP to be high, but that's enormous. If my calculations are correct, his adjusted spring stats based on a BABIP of .300 would be: .250/.282./.318. All too similar to the Ackley of the past. Also similar are his BB% of 4% and K% of 20%. I really thought he'd show more power this spring. I'm on board the Smoakamotive but not the...Ack-wagon.

Tigers to sign Fielder

Nats dodge a bullet. Had they outbid the kitties on this reported deal it would have been a lot of wasted money at the end of the deal.

So if you're Jack Zduriencik and the M's are in second place, three games out on July 25th what do you do?  If Bedard pitches about as well as he has his last four starts, he will be a prized...

Holy Cow We're Getting Roberto Clemente!!

I was looking at a rundown of the players we might pick up in the Rule 5 draft and it made me think, "Does anyone ever get value in the Rule 5 draft?"  Ok, so it turns out, yeah, they do. ...

Thanks, Nats, for Ryan Langerhans

Oh, and BTW...Mike Morse is not very good at baseball. As a Mariners fan I have to thank the Nationals for sending Langerhans our way.  A plus defender with an average lefty bat is just what the...

Good News

Erik Bedard has been cleared to pitch! I know lots of people think he was a whiney slacker, but we're stuck with him and he did, after all, have a cyst in his pitching shoulder!  It's not like he...
