If lower arm slots are associated with lateral run, and fade is the most important attribute of a changeup, why do a lot of side -arm pitchers struggle to throw changes?
Eno Sarris

Probably because of pronating from that slot. The lower down you go, the harder it is to turn your hand towards the thumb.

Is there any way to search platoon split leaderboards? Like which pitchers are most susceptible to platoon disadvantages without going pitcher - by - pitcher?

You could run this http://www.fangraphs.com/leaderssplits.aspx?splitArr=&strgroup=season&... for each side, but you'd have to do some excel work to get left minus right.

Somehow Eduardo Nunez was dropped the day Correa hit the DL and I was lucky enough to snag him...are these Boston rumors legit?  Would LOVE to have a SS-eligible speedster playing for the BoSox as a Correa consolation!

Nunez is going to go, I'd bet. Boston, Houston, there are plenty of places that could use him.

Who wins in a three way cage match between Jeff Wilpon, Sandy Alderson, and Terry Collins? Mets fans.

What makes Dan Straily sort of good? Can he keep doing this?

1) Has the biggest or second biggest difference between the fastball and changeup vertically, meaning he's combining a rising fastball (popups) with a great change (whiffs and grounders).
2) Throws anything in any count.
3) Has decent command and three legit pitches.
I think he can be league average, slightly better, for a while, yes.

I am opening a noodle shop in silverlake with limited space for beer. What are some sick cans that you like that pair well with food?
Eno Sarris

Firestone Walker Easy Jack won't crowd your food out. Cucumber Crush from 10 Barrel would give you a nice tart and fresh option. Something bigger for the IPA crowd: Breaking Bud from Knee Deep?

I don't think a ton of the LA beers are in cans, for what it's worth. Wouldn't want a ton of Golden Road, for instance.
You could, of course, throw some San Diego beers in there. Like an AleSmith X instead of Easy Jack.

Do you have a favourite player page whose stats you most enjoy marveling at? Mine is Ted Williams, also Joey Votto (and Greg Maddux).

Barry mofo Bonds. Look at all that black on BR.

My question was if Jones was closing in 2018? Swarzak is a FA next year.

Oh sorry woops. Yeah I guess so, but man is that dude fragile.

I'm so tired of the Texas pen. Claudio closing now?
Eno Sarris

Research has shown that velocity and strikeout rate matters, and research aside, have you watched Claudio? I can't imagine him closing for me. If not Bush, and he just pitched (badly) in a blowout, LeClerc.
