NHL Shootouts Are About As Useful As FoxTrax

I’m not a fan of shootouts. I think they belong in the All Star Skills competition, not playing a critical role in determining who goes home with two points and who goes home with regrets. In a sport where individual achievement is only possible through teamwork we’ve boiled down deciding games to a one-on-one competition that’s antithetical to the very nature of the game....

Player Profile #179: Devin Mesoraco | C | CIN

Homers, homers, and more homers. That was Devin Mesoraco’s 2014 season in a nutshell. The Reds breakout slugger crushed 25 bombs in just 440 PA and 384 AB, good for rates of one homer every 17.1 PA or 15.4 AB. While the homer total wasn’t elite, the homer rate was. Mesoraco’s 17.6 PA/HR in 2014 was elite  While this chart isn’t very instructive — you knew Mesoraco was...

The fantasy baseball world has absorbed a lot of pertinent sabermetric wisdom over the years. Estimating a player’s future batting average now reflexively leads to checking their BABIP and a hitter’s K%. Any discussion of a pitcher’s ERA will likely reference their FIP/xFIP/SIERA/etc. Please, blog, may I have some more?
