The two luckiest pitchers of 2014?

We reside in a numbers-driven baseball world where players are no longer measured by wins, losses, runs batted in or batting average. Instead we measure batters by wOBA and WAR and pitchers by FIP and WAR (among others). As such, players who buck the trends and are considered successful in the old way of looking at things compared to the new way end up being considered lucky. Alfredo...

Let’s tip our caps to Alfredo “Big Pasta” Simon

Alfredo Simon is 12-3, after getting the win last night in a 4-1 game against the Cubs in Cincinnati. If it weren’t for Simon, the Reds wouldn’t be 2.5 games out of first place in the National League Central right now. As we said, he’s 12-3, with a 2.70 ERA and 75 strikeouts to 28 BB. His STEAMER says he’ll finish the year at a paltry 16-9; which at this point would be a...

Simon goes for sixth straight win

While the Cincinnati Reds are sending four players to next week's All-Star game, Alfredo Simon somewhat surprisingly isn't one of them. In his first appearance since getting left off the NL roster, Simon looks to win a sixth consecutive decision Wednesday night against the last-place Chicago Cubs.
