Is this the opening gambit in a ploy to convince me Richie Martin is more valuable than Chris Davis because he's out batting averaging him by 15 points?

Not necessarily. 1.e4

I’m looking at comps:

2008 Kevin Youkilis .312 / .390 / .569

621PA 29HR 91R 115RBI, 146 wRC+

2004 Adam Dunn .266 / .388 / .569

681PA 46HR 105R 102RBI, 142 wRC+

or

2010 Paul Konerko .312 / .393 / .584

631PA 39HR 89R 111RBI 158 wRC+

2007 Ryan Howard .268 / .392 / .584

648PA 47HR 94R 136RBI, 135 wRC+

or

2005 Michael Young .331 / .385 / .513

732PA 24HR 114R 91RBI, 136 wRC+

2008 Adam Dunn .236 / .386 / .513

651PA 40HR 79R 100RBI, 130 wRC+

 

So in these three cases the high average batter performed better by runs created. I will stand corrected.

Hitting has become less of an art. Everyone's a one trick pony.

Yep I want more Gwynns and Ichiros

Step one: over a period of three years phase in minimum bat size specifications.  By 2023 nobody can swing a bat lighter than 36 ounces, handle diameters will have a minimum that's 50% larger than the average today, and barrels have to be between 3" and 3.25" instead of a max of 2.75".

At bats have become a game of home run, strikeout or walk. 

In 1992 25% of all PAs ended up as a home run, strikeout or walk.  Today it's 35%.  Since I was in college we've taken four PAs per team per game and transformed them from stuff happening on a baseball field into nine guys standing around and watching.

In 1899 it ws 13%, or under five K/BB/HR per team, so you had 33 plate appearances of people doing stuff in the field.  Today it's 25.

Is baseball really at its best when more than one in three times up result in nine fielders staring blankly into space?

Yes. Especially if there's a bat flip involved.

Chicks dig the downtime so they can check their Instagram account.  Action implies you should be paying attention, and that's so 20 years ago.

The guy goes almost a full month without hitting a home run, then he goes deep in back-to-back games.

With Hanser knocking balls over the fence, my biggest concern is this making Brady Anderson think it's time for him to make a comeback.

    • Thought it would be interesting to look at what people are thinking now.
    • Our defense was key in this victory! Great game by the team and Mr Jackson and his offense. Our defense will be a top 5 before the season is over
    • I think the answer to all these game polls going forward have the same answer.
    • Does anyone else think this 2019 team is a better team than either of our Super Bowl winning teams?      
    • In the 1920s the International League Orioles were probably among the top 10 professional teams in the world.  Jack Dunn refused to sign affiliation agreements.  He had all stars and Hall of Fame caliber players in their prime.  But eventually he was pressured by the rest of the league into caving.  The PCL made a little run in the 1950s at going independent and hinting a going major, but expansion and the Dodgers and Giants put an end to that.  Besides the relatively low-level indy leagues today there haven't been real minor league pennant races in my lifetime.
    • It's premature to say that the MLB draft is moving to August.  MLB wants to move it after the College World Series.  Some have speculated that August makes sense as a date in August would eliminate the need for short-season A teams.   Logically, it makes no sense to mandate which minor league teams will be axed although "leaking" a list may encourage towns on the fence to up their facilities.  How up to date are the facilities in Frederick? It location is great.  Organizations such as the Orioles/Astros that are big on machine learning, regression models, and neural networks are more likely to be on board with this plan while organizations such as the Cubs/Yankees that have the resources to have a more balanced approach may have  misgivings. During the past season the Cubs had 300 players under control.  This new plan would lessen that number by at least 100.  Youngsters that are unable to make the jump from the DSL or HS to full-season ball may stay at their respective complexes and play unofficial games against other organizations throughout the summer as opposed to until the draft as in past years.  One advantage is that it will be easier to evaluate prospects with fewer non-prospects in the mix, although you could argue that 20-year old prospects benefit from playing with 25-year old non-prospects who know the little things but have limited tools. The great statistics put up by top prospects during their first ML seasons in recent years suggests that top prospects may be spending too much time in the minors.  More rapid promotion for a select few is likely with a thinner pool of players.  It is also possible that AAA will be more like AA is today, i.e., the place for top prospects.   Independent leagues comprised of released players could fill the role that AAA has today - although this will depend on the details of the next ML agreement.  I've also heard that some teams would prefer a shorter season so that their prospects could spend more time in their respective pitching/hitting labs.           
    • I think their short-term plan would be to just have complex type leagues in Florida.  Use the spring training sites.  Intersquad games, eventually set up schedules to play other teams.  And release all the random organizational guys. MLB has all the leverage here because a large number of MiLB teams need MLB money to exist, and the majors don't really need the minors.  MLB would be largely unchanged if the minors disappeared tomorrow and was replaced by all the real prospects just hanging out in Florida and working out, playing scrimmages. But... maybe way back in the MLB owners heads is the idea that if they totally dumped bigger minor league cities new, bigger, more powerful independent leagues could spring up.  Players who don't like their draft position or bonus could have an alternate place to go, at least for a while.  I don't know if a 3rd major (really 2nd since AL and NL are just one league) is even marginally viable, but a fully independent AAA-ish league could seriously annoy the majors.
