    The Next Great Red Sox Team

    I wasn't really expressing an opinion on that. By the numbers, UZR likes him and DRS hates him, and no one I've read can figure out the source of the discrepancy. (For the record, the SS I really thought it would be worth sliding Bogaerts over to third for was Lindor, as he's the best defender...

    The Next Great Red Sox Team

    I'm not sure I agree with the bolded. Bogaerts has an opt out after the 2022 season, and it's not clear how long we should want him to start at shortstop, in any case. He certainly has the bat to carry another position. Devers' defense is divisive, he's into arbitration now, and he'll be...

    Wait, is this Gossett or Gonsalves pitching? edit: Gossett.

    Spring Training Games

    Arauz and Downs flub the transfer on a would-be GIDP and kind of blow up Gossett's inning.

    Spring Training Games

    Defense-aided RBI triple from Arauz knocks in Big Josh Ockimey. edit: single and an error, I guess.

    Once Martínez moves on, we can call him "JD."

    I do. They are not really following the rules, and the app didn't know how to deal with the fact that they ended the Caleb Simpson meltdown inning with one out, after a Sano double with the bases loaded. Castig and Floeming have it right.

    Eduard Bazardo sounded pretty crisp.

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    This should probably be in the minor league forum, but speaking of Osich, the PTBNL we got from the Cubs for him has now been N'd: He's a 22 year old RHRP who reached A ball in 2019 and did pretty well there, named Zach Bryant. (Cue jokes about how we got Bryant from the Cubs...)...

    Database advice

    Depending on the complexity and size of your data and what you need to do with it, I might recommend you consider Notion.so. I've been using it to coordinate some freelance projects. It's designed for small teams to customize workflows together and share information, which... sounds like it's...

    Spring Training 2021

    Additionally, Fox Sports North, home of the Twins, will broadcast games on March 3rd and March 11th. So, unfortunately nothing for Sunday that I can find.

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    TB in recent years has liked to have a bullpen with a ton of different arm slots, which people have suggested allows them to scout batters (probably just by running queries against massive samples of PitchFX data) for which arm slots they struggle with, and match up accordingly. It's an...

    Schreiber has been terrible in ~30 major league innings, but pretty great in the minors. 1.99 ERA in 204 IP; K/9 over 10; BB/9 under 3; WHIP under 1. Worth a shot.

    Spring Training 2021

    Please keep sharing Spring Training news and photos here. As a fan who only follows baseball, I always realize around this time of year that I would rather watch a random Grapefruit League game than the literal Super Bowl. What I'm saying is that I need my fix. Is Marwin Gonzalez in the best...

    Might as well start talking about 2021

    Summarizing from the other thread, it seems like Bloom may have been aware of a coming 40-man crunch in Tampa Bay, as a glut of catching prospects will soon need to be rostered. Hernandez would be — depending on the mixed assessments of his defense; sounds like the framing is poor but the arm is...

    Red Sox trade (P) Springs and Mazza to TB Rays for (C) Hernandez

    This is a good point. His line was .265/.299/.397 for a .696 OPS, but the league line was only .242/.313/.353 for a .666 OPS. The league ERA was 3.45. So doing a little long division to give us some context, he followed up an .832 OPS in 2018, 19% better than the Midwest League that season...

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    ...and given the group we have, it's pretty likely that he gets ten or fifteen starts this year. I was simplifying a bit. Multiple varieties of fastballs are indeed useful, but aren't expected to help with his primary deficit, which is a pitch that moves away from lefties. In his tryout he...

    Red Sox trade (P) Springs and Mazza to TB Rays for (C) Hernandez

    Nick Sogard looks like an interesting organizational/depth/utility type player. He's Eric Sogard's cousin, and the nephew of Dave and Steve Sax. Good eye, but no power to speak of. He posted a .290/.405/.313 in short-season A ball in 2019 as a 21 year old. Almost as many walks and hits, some...
