  1. Sounds like it’s confirmed. Wow

    I don't see how pitch framing works?

    A couple things that absolutely fascinate me about framing: prior to all the data coming out on this, we subjectively knew that framing was a real thing (I’ll never forget the effusive praise for Charles Johnson when we traded for him back circa 2000ish). However I don’t think we (or at least myself personally) realized quite how often some guys were getting extra calls. I kinda figured it was one here or there, but the data suggests that it happens all the time- several times a game. In retrospect, it makes sense too- the pitchers are the best of the best at this, and essentially live on the edge of the zone the entire game. And secondly, I always knew it was a huge difference between being 2-1 vs. 1-2 or 1-0 vs. 0-1, but it’s super cool to be able to translate that combined with framing data into actual expected runs saved

    Feels like the league panicked at the thought of having to review the final play
  5. if madrigal and or vaughn are in a deal it better be for a stud with at least 4 years cost controlled. those are the types of guys you can trade away when you are 1 piece away (ie gleyber for chapman), not trying to improve on a 72 win season

    Do people realize he is younger than Zach Collins?

    People don’t realize how big of a difference it is from A ball to the majors.

    Sox in on Marcell Ozuna? I mean, maybe. Or not.

    Is that the former cubs pitcher Frank Castillo?

    Rodon to IL; Giolito activated

    edema within the flexor mass is essentially what you would see with a flexor muscle strain. Unlike golfers or tennis elbow, which involve the tendinous insertions from the proximal arm , this involves inflammation around the tendinous insertions or within the flexor compartment of the forearm. Of course they dont comment on the integrity of the ligaments (ie the UCL/ tommy john ligament), but i'm guessing none of this portends a positive outcome.

    2 more HR for bleday. 19 on the year. I still don’t think he’s the right pick at 3 but it’s getting to the point where it would be hard to be mad if he got taken at 3
