When many discuss Brett Gardner’s value, they are quick to point to his defense, citing UZR as well as UZR/150 to outline his tremendous glove. For instance, in 2009, over 99 games, Gardner’s 7.4 UZR and 15.4 UZR/150 were two of the best marks in the American League. However, while there is an [...]
If there is one phrase that sums up the argument as to why Phil Hughes should start 2010 at Triple A Scranton, it is “in case.” In case a pitcher gets hurt. In case Joba Chamberlain ends up being ineffective.

Steve made an interestingly, nuanced argument yesterday that Jesus Montero ought be traded if it turns out he is unable to play catcher. With Mark Teixeira at first base, Alex Rodriguez at 3rd, and Jesus Montero unlikely to play a passable left field, designated hitter would be his long term destination on the Yankees. [...]
Bo Jackson — remember him? Of course you do. Who else could score from anywhere on the field each and every time he touched the ball in Tecmo Bowl?
Twenty years ago it was more common to see the two-sport athlete. Nowadays they’re [...]
The always fun and informative NoMaas.org recently posted an interview with BA’s John Manuel. They covered a range of topics from farm system ranking to examining most of the organization’s top prospects individually. On the heels of my Montero piece yesterday, I thought it would be timely to look at what independent sources [...]
