    Bullpen Analytics and the Three-Batter Rule

    question : if a pitcher just ain’t got it that night, he could potentially have to walk 3 batters before he can be switched out? side note: wonder how many phantom “blisters” comes outta trying to circumvent this.

    Sox talking Mookie trade with Dodgers, Padres - News & Discussion

    good point. could easily backfire if they chose a deal opposite his preference. i’m also not down on the sox chances to resign nxt season, assuming they are competitive in their offer. i’d be surprised if the market rate is close to his 12/$420 (reported) asking price. may be much more...

    David Ortiz will retire at end of 2016 season.

    or the other way. spend now is easier knowing another $10m (up to 16M) is off the books for '17.
