    Alex Verdugo - on-field discussion thread

    He spells it Dugie, but yeah that's the nickname he has. It's also on some of his cleats.

    Excellent, thanks for the heads up. Sprint gets the T-Mobile deal this year too for those not yet in the know. Maybe the first time I've been glad to be on the Sprint network.

    Credit where credit is due: who is responsible for the Red Sox success this century?

    I'm currently reading Homegrown, and Speier seems pretty high on Cherington as well. Not only what you said, but Epstein put him in charge of the minor league system as farm director with oversight of the farm system and amateur draft. In that time, as well as his time as GM a pretty massive...

    I'm watching game 5 of the same series tonight via the Pedro server on p&g. Where are you finding old playoff games on mlb.tv? I'm hoping to watch the 2004 playoffs after, starting with the ALDS but I'm struggling to find it online.

    I'm not sure if this is on the radar of most SoSH users yet, but there's a way to find any MLB game since 2009 on the official MLB Youtube channel. Here is the Reddit link with the information, but the gist is basically: In order to find a game, your search has to be in the following format...

    Sox have the fourth best offense by wRC+ wOBA and WAR and the second most runs scored in the league. So it's less that everyone has a great offense and more that pitching has taken a mighty drop off compared to last year.

    Playoffs? Playoffs!??!?!?

    The A's Schedule is the stick in the mud to my eyes. The remaining games against teams over .500 for teams in the wild card race. A's 7/30 games (Yankees/Astros) Rays 12/28 games (Cleveland/Boston/Yankees/Dodgers) Red Sox 13/28 games (Yankees/Rays/Twins/Phillies) Indians 15/29 games...

    Low BA, high OPS seasons

    So I have some top ten lists: Low average hitters as defined by all time MLB AVG-1SD (max .245 which limits to 14% of all qualified batter seasons). sorted by OPS/AVG (forgive me for this poorly formatted table...) No Red Sox appears until 2009 David Ortiz at #112 sorted by OPS-AVG - I think...

    Low BA, high OPS seasons

    2017 OPS Gallo's OPS was 4.2x his AVG and a .660 point difference between the stats, but 2009 Pena had .666 point difference (only 3.9x OPS over average). Which is more "impressive", a larger OPS/AVG or OPS-AVG. Perhaps it is the OPS/AVG that takes the cake in this discussion because as it is...

    Low BA, high OPS seasons

    The greatest difference between OPS and AVG among qualified batters with an "high OPS" defined by an OPS greater than or equal to the historical average OPS+1 standard deviation (min .878): Carlos Pena 2009 with an AVG of .227 and an OPS of .893 on the back of 39 HR with in ISO of .310. I was...

    Michael Chavis, SS: 2014 MLB Draft 26th overall

    As Eck said last night, "verrrry interesting." Pedroia has been an injured man for the last couple of years, but Nunez limited offensive value in his two full years with the Sox (1.8 bWAR) has been offset by his defensive liability (-1.7 bWAR). Over the same stretch, Holt is at 1.1 bWAR...

    Pedroia Predictions

    It was nice to see him hit the high heat last night. The previous pitch he definitely measured up the high fastball and I commented to my wife how if he saw that pitch again he was going to send it off the wall. Alas, I think that was the Pedey of old, but I'm equally as excited to see his game...

    The Starting Rotation's Start

    This is a quote from Speier's article today. http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/redsox/2018/04/15/chris-sale-felt-miserable-but-was-still-effective/TSKV1Qpmnsii6k17ONBxgK/story.html?et_rid=714312199&s_campaign=108stitches:newsletter

    The Bleacher Bar

    I couldn't think of what you meant at first. At first I thought maybe The Cask, because it's kind of cliche at this point then I thought to myself, "Where do /I/ go around Fenway? Most bars suck, frankly. I do like Cornwall's though." Then I saw your username... So for those who aren't clear...

    David Ortiz will retire at end of 2016 season.

    "Of course, there are those who learn after the first few times. They grow out of sports. And there are others who were born with the wisdom to know that nothing lasts. These are the truly tough among us, the ones who can live without illusion, or without even the hope of illusion. I am not that...
