    Benintendi to Royals for Franchy Cordero, Mets RHP prospect Josh Winckowski, and 3 PTBNLs

    Since 1901, I found a few careers that parallel Cordero’s, through the first four seasons: At least 315 PAs through that time, Cordero’s career total, an AB/SO ratio worse/less than 2.6, close enough to Cordero’s 2.58, and all had to be done by age 25 at latest, which was Cordero’s age in 11/16...

    2021 BBHoF Ballot

    Fuck Abreu being under 10%. Unfucking real. Despite 151 fewer plate appearances, reached base 24 times more than Gwynn; also exceeds names like Lajoie, Brock, Clemente. Only Abreu and David Wright have 5 seasons of 40+ doubles, 20+ homers, 15+ SB. I’m not even going to get into how bothered I...

    Hank Aaron has passed away

    View: The lowest trine of Henry Aaron’s career is worthy of a section of its own of just how good it is historically. As Craig mentions, by WAR, it’s 30.7. Flawed a stat as it may given inconsistencies in evaluating fielding...

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    Glad you enjoyed it, thanks. :) As for this, I’m mixed, I’m glad this deal wasn’t made to come back here at that price, but to not lose him without a TPE and to lose that cap space is really unfortunate for relative cap flexibility reasons. Seems like the Celtics, Pacers, and a de facto $39M...
