Le Toux or Ianni?

I just had this thought and I was curious what people thought about it.  As we all know, Sebastien Le Toux has been extremely important for the Phildelphia Union, with 11 goals and 10 assists. ...

CCL Expectations

I'm originally a baseball guy. Home field advantage isn't really a big deal in baseball. Being charitable to the home team, in MLB history, the home team wins about 55% of the time. It's an...

A Tall Order

In order for the Twins to come back and go ahead in the 9th inning last night, they would have needed at least 16 baserunners.  In order to come up with 16 runs on 16 baserunners, the last...

Kevin Slowey Projections

Today's the day that Kevin Slowey gets his first start in a major league ballgame.  What do the numbers suggest Slowey might do?  Three projection systems (that I know of) have projections for...

Community Projection - Dennys Reyes

[What is this?]Reyes was money last year.  Lots of strikeouts, lots of ground balls, not many walks.  His track record?  Not that strong.As usual, if you're submitting a projection (and please...

Community Projection - Jesse Crain

[What is this?]After a weird trip through the land of not many strikeouts and lots of infield pop-ups, Jesse Crain resumed life in the land of fastballs, sliders, and ground balls last year.  He...

Community Projection - Pat Neshek

[What is this?]ROOGY.  You don't see that term thrown around a whole lot, but that's very well what we're looking at here.  It almost seems like we should have separate projections for Neshek...

Community Projection - Juan Rincon

[What is this?]Sorry, I don't have time for an intro here.  What do you think Rincon will do this year?As usual, if you're submitting a projection (and please do so), just make a comment including...

Community Projection - Joe Nathan

Community Projection - Sidney Ponson

Community Projection - Boof Bonser

[What is this?]Boof went from bouncing back and forth between Minnesota and Rochester last year to being the Game 2 starter in the playoffs.  Needless to say, it was a pretty big year for Boof.He...

Community Projection - Ramon Ortiz
