Snell 5/50.  

 

 

I still think a lot of this is teams preparing for the next CBA.  In fact I am now expecting something being announced before the current CBA is up.

That contract could end up being a huge bargain for the Rays and ups his trade value big time.

The quick answer is that an intentional walk almost always results in higher run expectations for the inning.  So just don't do it.  Even when the batter has a 1.400 OPS.

There's a few situations where its either a coin flip or you should walk Barry Bonds with the bases loaded, per Tango Tiger's analysis.

Believe it or not, Giants down by 2 with the bases loaded is a "Go with gut" situation.  So Buck made the sabermetrically approved play.

Just saw that Trout has been worth 1.9 rWAR already this season.   

You know how certain groups declare “tax day” for the day when the average person has earned enough to pay his/her taxes for the year?    Maybe baseball fans should have “Trout day” for the day Trout reaches the average WAR output for a major league starting player.     And that could be today.
