Au contraire...the two biggest factors that favor hitting into DPs are the batter's speed and his tendency to hit fly balls. Those both have a lot to do with the player's ability.

Think you may need to reset some of your factors. Only 7 of 166 with a positive number? In effect, strikeouts get a .75 penalty, compared to .25 for other batting outs. This seems excessive. ...

Brenly is one of the worst managers ever to win a World Series. He did everything wrong in 2001, but thanks to Johnson and Schilling still came up roses. He will make a living off that for the rest...

Of course, 100 years ago Manny would have had a rather, er, dark complexion to play MLB. So would Pedro, for that matter.

It used to be true. In these days of ramped-up offense, I'm not sure if it still is.

Injuries and slumps. I expect a second-half comeback, although it will probably only net them third place.

The reason Gossage got used as the "closer" was, as Sparky himself said, when a manager has a choice between a 100-mph heater and an 85-mph slider, he's gonna go for the heat 9 times out of 10.

The Astros strengthen their lineup, but weaken their bullpen and give up their "catcher of the future" for a rental.

It's tough to get reliable defensive stats for first basemen, but the only AL player with a lower Zone Rating and at least 250 innings to date is Ken Harvey. I think it's safe to say Giambi leaves a...

Ramirez is deserving. If he sufficiently pads his counting numbers, or is on at least one World Champion, he will be elected to the Hall on the first or second ballot.

I think Glaus would have 11 homers this year. Staying healthy is a talent, and one Glaus is having trouble with lately. Also hitting for average. He's still one of the best 3B in the league, but...

MVP is a stretch, but Foulke has certainly been terrific this year for the Bosox. If he can save the 7th game of the WS, he will have been worth the entire contract already.

Clark was a great player and IMO a Hall of Famer. Edmonds is still building his resume, but he could surpass Clark given some more time.
