I mean, if we had that data...maybe? I'd certainly love to have that data, but to my knowledge we don't have anything beyond temperature at first pitch.

The teams may already use it, but not until it is available to the public

CarGo's wRC+ @ Coors = 137. CarGo's wRC+ on the road = 101. How exactly is calling him a product of Coors BS?

This is all Paul's

Because balls don't break the same way at Coors as they do on the road. By the time Rockies' hitters adjust to how the ball breaks away from Coors, the road trip is over. Look at Walker, Holliday, Fowler, etc. The good hitters who leave Coors continue to hit just as well.

Are you surprised that Park only got 1mil more guaranteed than Kang?
Paul Swydan

No, not really. It's not like he has a ton of leverage.
Jeff Zimmerman

No since he is limited to just 1B or DH

And we are limited in the time we can devote to this chat, so we're going to call it a night. No chat next week, I'll be on my flight home from the Winter Meetings at our normal time. But we'll pick it up in two weeks. Thanks for hanging out tonight!
