Yay or nay on the Carlos Beltran bleached beard?
Dan Szymborski

He should go the Hollywood Hogan route rather than the Big Poppa Pump route.

Why has BOS not cut bait on Rusney?
Dan Szymborski
2:26
Doesn't save them anything, so might as well see what he can do.

how does FG make sure 2 writers arent writing same post? Is there a company wide group chat where writers call dibbs?
Dan Szymborski
2:27
I have no idea.

I love watching Javier Baez play, but people thinking he's a superstar with the bat are out of their minds. The guy has a major contact problem. He ran a .314 OBP with 108 K's and 15 BB's last season. He has a 7:1 K to BB ratio. That is not good.
Dan Szymborski
2:27
With enough power, an infielder wiht a contact problem can be a star.

Whose greatness is more obvious, AJ Styles or Mike Trout?
Dan Szymborski
2:28
Styles is more obvious. Trout's just so awesome that nothing he does looks hard.

Justin Upton hits righties better than lefties, at least last year. Do you think this means he like hitting curve/slider better than changeup?
Dan Szymborski
2:29
It's closer than it used to be thanks to the last two years, but again, it's very dangerous to draw conclusions from a year or two of split data.
Especially when you have actually data against actual pitches, a better idea than relying on extremely noisy stats.
