Monday, May 08, 2017

Baseball is a game of numbers — OPS, WAR, and UZR has become the language of the game — but it is also a game of style.   What else would you expect from a game that is, essentially a compilation of individual performances, with those individuals coming from a variety of backgrounds.  Despite what the unwritten rules police want you to believe, baseball is a game of flair. …

Friday, May 05, 2017

7:45 AM ET Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment There aren’t many good days in the war on pitcher injuries, but Monday was particularly bleak.

Friday, May 05, 2017

The Orioles–Red Sox feud has been escalating for two weeks now, beginning with Manny Machado sliding into Dustin Pedroia on April 21, continuing with the racist insults hurled at Orioles outfielder Adam Jones, then with Chris Sale throwing behind Machado on Tuesday night, and culminating in Kevin Gausman’s ejection Wednesday. The teams play again tonight, so it may not be over. Of course, this kind of beef is not new…

Baseball academy abruptly closes, leaving players in lurch, parents without refunds – Chicago Tribune

Friday, May 05, 2017

The evidence of trouble at BatSpeed Academy, a Gurnee baseball and softball training center, is clear enough: The state recently dissolved it as a company, a dumpster outside the building is heaped with equipment and a hand-drawn sign taped to the front door says “Closed.” But the abrupt shuttering of the business last month, along with the disbanding of summer travel teams it ran for high school baseball players, has…

RE LAX. What is Baseball? – Halo’s Heaven

Wednesday, May 03, 2017

Tyler Skaggs is a good major league pitcher. That’s undeniable. It remains to be seen whether he’ll be an All-Star or not, but at the very least, most people can agree that his stuff is above average. His injury, compounded with the ones to Garrett Richards, Nick Tropeano, Andrew Heaney, Cam Bedrosian, and countless others, means that the Angel pitching staff is, once again, pretty decimated. What is Tyler Skaggs?…
