TuesdoLinks: In glove with baseball – Halo’s Heaven

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

I suppose that the more formal concept of the off-season is now considered over. (Keep in mind that Eppler is still busy signing guys. Look at the names just late last week.) So it’s time to turn the wheeling and dealing page and think about things like contract extensions for big names entering their walk year. .That said, the news I linked to just yesterday about the Mets extending Neil Walk might…

The Nationals are baseball’s sneakiest superteam again – SB Nation

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Two years ago, the Nationals had just signed Max Scherzer, and they were going to win 105 games. They were so loaded with pitching, they took Tanner Roark and his 2.85 ERA out of the rotation. If I had known about the season that Bryce Harper was going to have, I would have guessed the Nationals were going to win 110 games. They finished 83-79, seven games behind the Mets….

In a world without stats, who’d be baseball’s best player? – ESPN.com – ESPN

Feb 20, 2017 Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment This started with a crush on Starling Marte. Marte is an outfielder with the Pittsburgh Pirates and my favorite baseball player to watch. He’s fast enough to have stolen 47 bases last year, third-most in the majors. His arm is one of the best in the game, capable of firing 101 mph bullets from the outfield. He is strong…

Don’t Change Baseball’s Extra Inning Rules – The Federalist

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

This month, as baseball fans looked forward to the start of spring training, news emerged that Major League Baseball was considering modifying its rules to change the game more than anything since the end of the deadball era. The idea, as Jeff Passan reported for Yahoo News, is that if a game goes into extra innings, a runner would be automatically placed at second at the start of each half-inning….

Money for nothing: Baseball’s worst contracts in 2017 – ESPN

8:30 AM ET Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email comment One of my favorite annual features to put together is our list of the best and worst contracts in baseball. You don’t see the impact of money directly on the field, but there’s no denying that it is an elemental aspect of how teams are constructed and has been crucial for nearly a half-century now. But we’re doing one thing…

Here’s LSU baseball’s pitching plan with busy 5-game week on tap – The Advocate

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

A pair of shortened games and some standout performances by starting pitching conspired to nix some of LSU coach Paul Mainieri’s plans regarding his bullpen usage. Specifically, Mainieri mentioned junior Hunter Kiel and seniors Russell Reynolds and Collin Strall as three relievers he was hoping to use last weekend but couldn’t. “The fact that we played two seven-inning games — and one of those games was…

A spiked bat probably isn’t the best prop for baseball players – SB Nation

Monday, February 20, 2017

Over the past few days, you might have seen tweeted pictures of MLB stars holding a baseball bat with barbed wire wrapped around it. It’s a fairly brilliant tie-in for the AMC TV show The Walking Dead, which recently had its midseason premiere. A number of players were seen holding replicas of Lucille, the name of the bat that’s used by the supremely terrifying Negan. (Yes, the bat has a…
