Sometimes I throw with Matthew Kory. That's fun. I don't play organized baseball because I don't have 17 baseball-playing friends

Have you written any fictional work Jeff?
Jeff Sullivan

I once wrote an optimistic FanGraphs article about Carlos Peguero

Why am I struggling out of the gate so much and will I improve?
Jeff Sullivan

You're fine. At some point you'll stop playing the Nationals

That Puig article got my pondering early season launch angle changes. Carlos Gomez's launch angle is up 17 degrees... Okay maybe I should wait for more data to come in.

The biggest sample around is probably like 8 or 10 batted balls.

But Gomez had a launch-angle spike when he moved from the Astros to the Rangers

Looks like Harvey's velo is down b/c he's switched to a 2 seam FB

Which would mean more contact. So this would be a different Matt Harvey

What is your thoughts on Mike Folty going forward?
Jeff Sullivan

I like that he can get ahead. Want to see him better at putting away
All right, I need to get rolling
So thank you everybody for hanging out, and I'm sorry for what I didn't or couldn't address. We'll do it again next week at the same time, and until then, be well and have great days
