They are. They count as caught stealings in wSB, which is part of BsR

Vote Bryant/Hendricks 2016. A ticket you can trust.

I'll give you the first one

So what's with the tremendous disparity between Trea Turner's league leading Speed score and his -.5 UBR?
august fagerstrom
12:37
Well a -0.5 UBR is pretty inconsequential, and it's a pretty tiny sample. But it probably comes from having made four outs on the bases. I wouldn't think much/any of it.

What would Gary Sanchez need to do in these last 19 games to pass Michael Fulmer for ROY? .400 and 7 HRs ROS and lead the Yankees to the playoffs?
august fagerstrom
12:38
If the Yankees make the playoffs I'd guess there's a groundswell movement for Sanchez to be RoY

Kershaw from 6/1/15 - 6/1/16: 1.49 ERA, 31.4 K-BB, 0.73 WHIP. I don't have a question.

The new Rich Hill "debuted" a year ago, and has a 1.74 ERA since then
also, have to fire off a tweet really quick now
one sec
the five ERA leaders over the last year play for 2 teams
non-adjusted stats make that misleading, of course, but, man.
good teams are good

Guys who played in the MLB: Brian Jordan, Juan Rincon, Benito Santiago, Gary Matthews Jr, Josh Fogg

12:44
damnit, I once stumbled upon an amazing Brian Jordan fun fact in a post I wrote a couple years ago but now I can't find it
12:45
found it!
Of the 19 right field -> first base putouts from 2000-14, Brian Jordan was responsible for three of them in the year 2000 alone
12:46
still want video so bad

Got my Indian's playoff tickets! If they lose Salazar for the playoffs, how much does that hurt their chances at winning it all?
august fagerstrom
12:47
You just reminded me I need to update the depth charts. They're at 12.8%. I'll remove Salazar now and by the end of this chat we should have updated odds
Jim Lonborg

Has Miley entered the big decline, or is his current stretch a predictable fluctuation within his basic Mileyness?
august fagerstrom
12:48
probably the latter, and that he's just not very good to begin with
Raindog
12:49
It's a tight playoff race and you have to start Wade Miley or Yovani Gallardo 3 more times. What should you drink to help you through this?
august fagerstrom
12:49
water, probably. the pitching might be enough to kill you, so you should think of your health.
Kevin
12:49
Given his fielding metrics, would Hosmer be more valuable to KC as a DH?
august fagerstrom
12:49
not as long as they've got Morales on the team
and he's not as bad as this year's metrics suggest
12:50
he's just not a Gold Glove-caliber 1B
Erik

The Phillies started out surprisingly well, but then settled back down to the level of performance they were expected to have before the season started. They've also had underwhelming campaigns by some key future pieces (Franco, Nola) and not really any significant breakouts (except maybe Eickhoff becoming a solid #3). How does their future outlook compare to what it was before the season?
