SAGNOF Report: Even Miranda Is Adding Hamilton

Today is the first time that I can look at Billy Hamilton and say, "now is the time if he was available in a league I was in, I would add him."  Chances are some ****** canoe has been sitting on him all year, playing him sporadically and reaping the semi-benefits of him.  Watching him recently and correlating that into his last nine games, he has 9 stolen bases and looks to be...

Joey Votto Is Still Pretty Good at Baseball

Last week, I wrote about the disproportionate impact a disastrous April can have on our perceptions of a player. The example I used then was Ken Giles, who has largely put an awful first month of the season behind him and returned to being a dominant reliever. Now seems like as good a time as any to talk about another player who struggled mightily in April: Joey Votto. As Owen...

MLB is tired of managers arguing balls and strikes

Manager tirades at umpires have largely become a thing of the past thanks to instant replay taking away most of controversy in many decisions in baseball… except balls and strikes.
