About Last Night: Honoring women in baseball – Lookout Landing

Thursday, August 17, 2017

The Mariners might be struggling on the field, but off the field, the team continues to Royally Own, with the most recent entry into this being last night’s Women In Baseball Night. Not to take anything away from lady fans who love their bejeweled tanks and pink logo clutches, but women-centered events at ballparks have mostly relied on this type of marketing to the female fan, a concept seemingly drawn…

Longtime Angel Jered Weaver announces retirement from baseball – Los Angeles Times

Thursday, August 17, 2017

Jered Weaver, who won more games than all but one pitcher in Angels history and left some $60 million on the table to play for them, announced his retirement Wednesday. Weaver, 34, a three-time All-Star for the Angels and the franchise’s most recent 20-game winner, called it a career after failing to win in any of his nine starts for the San Diego Padres. “I’ve decided to step away from…

Area Man Will Be Judge Of Whether Woman Actually True Baseball Fan – The Onion (satire)

Thursday, August 17, 2017

CHICAGO—Saying that he alone could determine the legitimacy the woman’s claim, area man Luke Haggerty will be the judge of whether coworker Delia Carroll is actually a true baseball fan, sources confirmed Wednesday. “She says she’s a huge baseball fan, but we’ll just see about that,” said Haggerty, peppering the woman with seemingly innocuous questions about the current National League standings and her thoughts on recent trades in order to…

The Subway Series is a reminder that Brooklyn deserves a Major League baseball team – New York Daily News

Thursday, August 17, 2017

It’s been 60 years since the Brooklyn Dodgers headed west. With the Subway Series underway, there’s no better time to consider making New York City a three-team town once more. Bring on the Brooklyn Robinsons. (What else would you call them?) If you don’t think the city can sustain three Major League teams the way it did for a half a century up until 1957, when the…

The Unlikely Resurgence Of Baseball’s Aces – FiveThirtyEight

Thursday, August 17, 2017

This baseball season seems to have the makings of an unpleasant one for pitchers. Hitters are focusing on hitting deep fly balls, and more of them are leaving the yard than ever before, possibly thanks to a batch of baseballs that are bouncier than usual. As a result, scoring has increased to 4.65 runs per game, the highest it’s been since 2008. But despite all of that, star hurlers are…

How baseball agents are negotiating the gap in information and analytics in MLB – CBSSports.com

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

In the 14 years since the publication of Moneyball, baseball’s fascination with numbers has become a well-known condition. Teams are using complex mechanisms to evaluate players, and are reaching farther and farther from the league and its data providers to get their quantitative fix. You can’t dust a general manager’s shelf without numbers flying all over the place. The ongoing data revolution has obscured a simple fact. With teams receiving improved…

In Texas, the last baseball-glove maker refuses to die – Chicago Tribune

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

This little brick factory isn’t supposed to be here. It should be in the Philippines, or Vietnam, maybe China. Not here, in the heart of Texas. Baseball gloves, like many other things, aren’t really made in America anymore. In the 1960s, production shifted to Asia and never came back. It might be America’s favorite pastime, and few things are more personal to baseball-lovers than their first glove — the smell,…

Free Giancarlo Stanton: Why the Marlins need to trade baseball’s home run king – Yahoo Sports

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Every day that goes by with Giancarlo Stanton in a Miami Marlins uniform is a wasted opportunity for a franchise begging to be run properly. And after years of the most feckless ownership group in baseball alienating an entire metropolitan area with lies, mismanagement and a seeming contempt for decency, its going-away present to new ownership should be to either trade Stanton now or lay the groundwork for a deal…
