  1. Verlander tweeted something like a year ago, basically a graph showing the exit velocity and launch angle of every ball hit. Balls were traveling further then they were in previous seasons with the same exit velocity and launch angle.
  2. Cohen paid $140 million for an ugly statue. If Cohen wants to win they will have an advantage over everyone, he's worth about 3X as much as the second richest owner.
  3. That's a terrible counter though. He was a college player and was terrific in the minors at 22 and 23. The Astros held him down way longer than they should have to manipulate service time. He should have broken into the majors at 23. Regardless he came up as a 24 year old at had an OPS+ 126 in a short season then 129 his first full season at 25. Springer was a good hitter from day one at a young age. He's not an elite MVP level hitter, but he's always been an all star level player, where is this need to downplay Springers bat coming from?
  4. I agree he's not somebody the Tigers should look to sign, but saying his a career Candy is asinine. He has a career wRC+ of 134, if he was 3 years younger he'd be a great guy to sign.
  5. I'd be fine with just to see Kershaw get one. The Astros cheating ruined robbed him of one and furthered hurt his postseason legacy, as he was dominant in that series away from Houston.
  6. Trade was really dumb, but we got lucky that Edwin had a flukey good year and was able to be flipped for Scherzer.
  7. I've always thought it was because they grew up during the era when the belief was kids were to be seen and not heard.
  8. It's too bad we didn't sign Nick "JD Martinez" Castellanos long term. I'd love to be able to pencil his .225/.298/.486 slash lineup into the heart of our order for the next 5 years.
  9. There is value in seeing it across all AB. It is worse stranding a leadoff triple than a 2 out triple. Maybe find a weigh to weight it more accurately though.
  10. He's been in the minors since 2013. 2017 and 2019 were the only multi-HR years he had.
  11. In his first major league at bat, Alcantara hit his 10th professional home run.
  12. The only time Shep brings enthusiasm is when somebody hits a routine flyball.
  13. Mike Trout hit .220/.281/.390 in 135 PAs in his first season.
  14. Who was never traded? Don't get the comparison here.
  15. He's a light hitting OFer who derives most of his offensive value from his walk rate as he doesn't hit for a high average. Considering his strikeout rates, I wouldn't bet on him walking 12%+ against MLB pitchers who won't be afraid to pound the zone against a singles hitter.
