Pirates fans what do you think it would take to pry Tony Watson away

The Astros most glaring hole right now is probably left handed relief. Probably could use a better #3 starter too unless Peacock has really turned the corner (apparently he was giving away signs when he struggled prior to 2015?)

He has stopped pitching from the wind up, in my observations.

He's never even posted a .330 OBP. That's extremely lovely for a guy with no power at all.





Comments: I don't care how injured Mike Trout is, I'm still voting for him with every ballot. It's weird not to see Miggy at the top of the AL 1B leaderboards, but I'm sure as gently caress not voting for Supreme Leader Smoak. Also, can it be possible that Kemp is finally going back to the ASG? Probably won't get the votes but it would make sense to name him a reserve if he keeps hitting like this.

An AL relief pitcher posting a .330 OBP would be pretty unusual.

My favorite part is how Yandy Diaz is in the top 20 for average exit velocity, but has an average launch angle of -1.0 degrees.

Through the magic of MLB.TV I've managed to listen to or watch at least part of almost every game this season out here in the PNW. It's dismal - they're real bad.

Define "modern era" because it's hard to top the Blackhawks in the time Bill Wirtz owned the team.

It's a lot easier to gently caress up teams in the other sports . Baseball is different. A large market team should never be bad for more than 1-2 years imho.

Even given their recent "success" I would put the Mets up there as well, I've never seen a team slam their window closed on their own dick so thoroughly before.

I wanted to post something about Ankiel here but even allowing for him, I can't in good conscience complain about the Cardinals' drafting and development of pitching prospects.

Waino is the first Cardinal in the modern era to homer in a victory and have his RBI tally equal the teamís total runs scored (also a shutout). Cool stat! Pitcher dingers!

The bigger problem is their criteria for drafting people past the first round or two was "will this guy sign for 1000 bucks?"
