The bargains of the 2015 MLB free agent class

In past years, I’ve often compared shopping in free agency to shopping at Whole Foods, in that everything is just more expensive than it should be. But given that I’m currently writing this post at my local Whole Foods — their oatmeal is actually pretty good, and not too expensive for mornings when work-from-home writers […]

Brandon McCarthy as a Value

In some ways, this feels like a blog post from ten years ago. The idea template, at least, is the same, but then, we weren’t complete idiots ten years ago. We knew less, but we didn’t know nothing. Brandon McCarthy is a free agent. He looks like a potentially valuable free agent, at least as […]

New York Yankees: Evaluating the trade deadline moves

With the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline done, the New York Yankees made multiple trades to help boost and reconstruct their roster.

Brandon McCarthy's perfect 'Seinfeld' joke about number

The change of scenery certainly hasn’t affected Brandon McCarthy’s sense of humor. The right-handed pitcher was traded from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the New York Yankees on Sunday, but he’s hit a couple of snags with the Bronx Bombers before he’s even trotted out to the mound in pinstripes.
