That can't continue all season, right?

Do teams value "WINS" differently than as us fans now when it comes to figuring out the value of the player? For example, an extra WIN from player A on a contending team is worth more than an extra WIN on a bottom feeder.

I'm sure each team has a slightly different methodology, but a team on the brink of a projected playoff berth is going to value those extra wins more

Given new international spending limits, will we potenitally see NPB be competitive for elite young Latin players? $5M is only a little more than what the top Japanese players make.

Interesting thought. Maybe?

5 (!) unintentional walks for Matt Holiday yesterday. (God bless OBP leagues). Is it that hot of a take to think Holliday actually ends up with better numbers than everyone's favorite shiny new toy, Greg Bird?

Absolutely. Holliday has a long track record of success and his underlying skills have remained intact ...and now he's hitting in the AL East. Holliday could be a great value pick

Thoughts on Shoemaker? Rough stats all the way around, but Velo, F-Strike, SwStr, Movement all look the same... also, he's been hurt by a catcher's inference, a balk (to score a run), and 2 poorly timed HBP.

yeah, let's wait on the Shoemaker panic button

Name 2 mid-tier closers you are high on that aren't considered elite....yet. Name 2 you are scared to death of.

I love Treinen's stuff despite the shaky first week results. Jeanmar Gomez is always scary

Pitch sequencing can make certain pitches play up right? What about pitcher sequencing? Does a pitch like devenskis change look better because batters have already seen someone else pitch?

This is worth investigating. I do love how the Astros are employing him.

Alright folks, I have to go write for you .... I will be back next week!
Don't be sad it's over, be glad it happened
