    Why do we still use the "1 in 200 year event" or, for the Texas issues earlier this year, "1 in 100 year event" for events that are much more likely to occur in the future than ever before?

    September Call Ups

    Looking at changes from the current roster relative to mid-September: Up: Grandal, Hamilton, Engel, Marshall, Crick Down: [2 extra spots], Lamb [DFA], Wright, Ruiz Wishful thinking: Sheets up, Goodwin DFA Wright getting optioned is kind of obvious with Lopez taking his role, could even happen for Grandal tomorrow. Crick for Ruiz is what I'm least sure of but I don't really see Ruiz making the playoff roster.

    Thanks for reading

    Complain about Kimbrel here:

    My two cents if anyone's interested TL/DR: Kimbrel's fastball command is a (correctable) issue, but he has been more unlucky than bad since the trade

    Rodon to IL with Shoulder Fatigue

    Right? There's no way they could be this dumb. Do they know something we don't about the 2022 season (lockout, shortened season, etc.)? The rationale from Katz makes it even worse -- it made sense before Kimbrel and Tepera, but not anymore. The idea that having Kopech unavailable for a few days puts the team at a competitive disadvantage just no longer applies, especially when Kopech only pitches once every 3-4 days in the first place.
  6. They attempted to trade for him prior to the season, whether they still like him is anyone's guess
  7. Another difference, in addition to what some have pointed out, is that a struggling artist that waits tables is making a living through another endeavor. Minor league baseball players are still playing baseball, and no matter how much MLB owners try to cry poor by funneling profits into other books, they can absolutely afford to at least pay the players a living wage. The Twitter account @MiLBAdvocates has been really active this season and has done a good job of highlighting some of MiLB's issues, to the point where certain organizations have even changed practices in-season as a result of the backlash
  8. I don't really see a way of him making the team in September either. We have 26 right now, none of which are particularly easy candidates to be sent down for Jimenez, Lamb, or Robert. Not to mention a hopeful acquisition at 2B. Burger or someone could be traded, but I'd imagine those extra spots would go to guys like Hamilton, Sheets, or Goodwin since Jimenez/Robert/Lamb will take their ABs

    Lance Lynn locked up 2 years 38 mill + club option

    I would not be surprised if one of Crochet or Cease is traded this month (obviously for someone controlled, not a Story type)

    Automated Strike Zone

    Exactly. It's textbook availability bias. I can't take anyone seriously who claims to watch baseball games (especially this year) and thinks home plate umpires are better than a system that, even if flawed, is likely accurate close to 99% of the time

    GT 6/29 Twins @ White Sox

    He's a top 3/4 hitter on the team against RHP this year. His overall numbers just look much worse because he starts against the majority of LHP that we face

    GT 6/29 Twins @ White Sox

    Traded for Charlie Blackmon to make room for Jake Burger

    Sox @ Pirates, 6/23, 11:35 CT

    I think he was confused because the first pitch was called a ball despite being right in the zone, but he assumed it was too obvious for the umpire to demonstratively call it a strike
  14. Ketel Marte is a 7 fWAR player (in 2019) currently with a >.400 OBP on a bargain contract for another 3.5 years. I see him as a more positionally versatile Moncada with a bit more home run power, which probably makes him a top 6-10 position player in the game. Maybe I'm just crazy, but combining that with his contract, I can't see any trade for him that doesn't include two of Kopech, Vaughn, and Crochet, plus a bunch of the other guys you mentioned. He's a superstar
