Coolest MLB ballpark feature? Worst (other than Marlins sculpture)?

1:08
Don't know if you're looking only for in-stadium features, but the San Francisco Bay being right up against right field at AT&T is awesome
I'm also a big fan of Tal's Hill, which I suspect would be most people's "worst"
1:09
I like most anything that makes a stadium unique. That includes the Marlins structure

What kind of value does Vizcaino have on the trade market?
august fagerstrom
1:09
Elite closer value
1:10
Elite, cost-controlled closer value. Somewhat hampered by PED / Tommy John history
Terry Ryan
1:10
How do I fix my pitching staff?
august fagerstrom
1:10
I don't think you'll be the one fixing it.

august fagerstrom
1:12
Most negative framing runs, MLB 2016:

1. D. Navarro, -10.0
2. T. Barnhart, -7.7
3. J. Realmuto, -7.6

Rooting hard for a Soler/Miller trade between ChC and NYY, if only so we can finally see Soler with regular playing time. This actually seems like it has an outside shot of happening, thoughts?
august fagerstrom
1:12
Every mid-June trade proposal has an outside shot of happening
Sean

August, I need baseball players I totally forgot that played in the MLB, like Alex Cintron, Marquis Grissom, Rey Ordonez, and Chuck Knoblauch
august fagerstrom

Niceeeee

I Is David Ortiz the fastest man alive?

Someone should write an article about how the Red Sox have been the most efficient base-stealing team ever

RE: Vizcaino, Even with his past TJ surgery and PED suspension?
august fagerstrom
1:14
Those wouldn't help, certainly, but he's currently not hurt or suspended

How many ballpark's have you been to?
august fagerstrom

Somewhere in the mid-20's

All my peripherals appear normal except my GB%. Is this an anomaly that will improve?
august fagerstrom
1:14
That's a pretty big peripheral, especially given the magnitude of the change, and the fact that you pull them all and you're slow
Something's wrong with his swing that needs ironed out

Do the Reds trade Bruce
august fagerstrom
1:15
yes

What does your crystal ball say about Jurickson Profar's future: 1) super-utility in TX; 2) somebody else's starting SS; 3) Texas' starting SS (Andrus trade)?
august fagerstrom
1:15
Good player for someone

Steve Stone won a Cy Young overthrowing his curveball and was out of baseball a year later.

Correlation/causation?

Between you and me, August, I think Megan regrets hiring that new woman in finance. She has the energy of a children's cartoon.
Matt Damon

MATT. DAMON.
