    Oakland @ CWS 6/23

    This is pretty much the approach of all hitters now. Its all launch angle and exit velocity. This is why they use the dramatic shift so much.

    Yep. Labral tears are relatively easy to fix, unless they involve stretching the capsule as well then the can get tricky. Reattaching tendons icky. They should come back but the strength after return complicates it.

    Hopefully he has the range to swing it properly and limit his swing. The bone should be healed but that doesn't mean the motion has returned.

    So is having adequate motion after immobilization post fracture.

    Astros interested in Abreu?

    I still think SIERA is better than FIP but it really hasn't gotten much attention for some reason.

    A’s vs White Sox 6/21 postponed

    That's only true if you aren't rooting for a higher draft pick.

    The big downfall of WAR, just as it is with most of the similar stats is that it's based on a homemade algorithm of what one person or a group of people think is important. It's fun to compare but it is really subjective time in its measurements.

    Don't think the MLB owners would approve Cuban. Didn't they already turn him down? Was it for the Cubs?

    He's really playing well this year. Hopefully someone gives him a shot. I'm a little biased from working with him in the Olympics arena but I hope he does well.

    This is true. This FO could not seem to get that to work so they are trying a different way. This way really is a more sound philosophy because it allows a middle revenue team to have a longer vision of success. The best thing the FO did was have Hostetler run the draft (except for the bad picks which were of course KW picks). He seems to have made this rebuild more sustainable with more promising players throughout the draft.

    This is true with few exceptions. One of them is the Bears where the McCaskeys have no other significant businesses other than the Bears. JR made his money and still does in real estate.

    Most of the other affiliates now have legitimate prospects throughout the team. Charlotte will be there next year.

    Kopech "getting closer"

    What? Family issues and personal issues don't effect someone's performance at work, especially if you are never there and don't get to see anyone. It's difficult to appreciate the personal hardships of a baseball season. Granted they get paid well once they get to the MLB but not in the minors. I did it for a couple of seasons in the minors and a partial MLB season and had to get out. We didn't get paid like the players though. 😁

    Gross of 260 million? That's it? Some teams have payrolls for just the players in the 200 million range. That's not including all the ticket , promotions, coaches etc at the MLB, not to mention paying all of the minor league employees. The investors really can't have much of a profit.
