Jake Fox Next Brandon Moss?

Remember when Brandon Moss went hitless in 6 at bats back in 2011 with the Phillies?  He was released that offseason and the shrewd GM of the A's, Billy Beane, inked him to a minor league contract and watched him blossom into one of the game's best run producers.  Moss has hit .268/.887 with 171 R, 58 DBL, 74 HR, 210 RBI, and a 7.6 WAR in 324 games over the past 3 seasons...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Pumping the Brakes on Spring Training

Source: Christian Petersen/Getty Images North America There was a Fangraphs piece a short while ago that mentioned Jake Fox. That piece is hyperlinked here. I’ll sum it up for you, in case you’ve forgotten who Jake Fox is/was. Jake Fox spent the majority of his career in the Cubs’ and Orioles’ systems. He spent the majority of his career doing three things: hitting pretty...

The (Minor) Importance of Velocity Changes

Remember Jake Fox? Jake Fox was a catcher/third baseman/outfielder for the Cubs/A’s/Orioles/Pirates. He didn’t really shine at any defensive position, and his hitting really wasn’t any better. He cracked a wRC+ north of 100 for the first time in 2009 as a member of the Orioles, at 104. He, to this point, has a career […]

It’s Time To Bring Up Jake Fox

Finally, it seems people are jumping on the bandwagon.  Charlie at Bucsdugout, whom I think is one of the best Pirates bloggers just put out the first of the mainstream Pirates blogger articles calling for Jake Fox.

Jake Fox among four cut from ML camp

Last night I wrote that I believed Jake Fox should make the club out of Spring Training. Apparently, the Pirates did not agree with me as he was assigned to minor league camp today along with Nick Evans, Eric Fryer, and Ryota Igarashi. The move leaves the Pirates with their two catchers in Rod Barajas and Michael McKenry who will head north with the club. It also means that the final...

Fox’s Versatility Could be Asset for Pirates

BRADENTON — Being able to play multiple positions not only takes talent and dedication, but it apparently also requires a big equipment bag. Once Spring Training games kick off for the Grapefruit League on March 3, Jake Fox will be carrying around nine gloves. Nine. “I will have a game glove for each position, a backup, and as a catcher I usually carry three gloves,” Fox said...
