Dodgers rookie Joc Pederson has a shot to start the All-Star Game

Dodgers rookie center fielder Joc Pederson remains sixth among outfielders in the final All-Star Game voting update released by MLB on Monday. Given that voting ends this week and considering how far back he is from the third outfielder, Matt Holliday, he probably won’t be voted in by the fans as a starter. Jon Weisman of Dodger Insider points out that he might end up starting...

There’s no obvious AL MVP favorite

As we approach the midway point of the 2015 MLB season, the National League award winners are pretty easy to choose – Bryce Harper, Max Scherzer, and Joc Pederson are pretty easy selections for the MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year awards.

Predicting the value of Bryce Harper’s next contract

Bryce Harper will play out the remainder of the 2015 season and the 2016 season under a two-year, $7.5 million contract. I would say that is a pretty good bargain for the Washington Nationals. Harper likely earned his entire $2 million salary for the 2015 season with his monster month of May. Yep, 13 home runs, 28 RBIs, and a .360/.495/.884 line is worth somewhere around $2 million...

On-base percentage is the most overlooked stat in baseball

Whenever someone is talking about how good a hitter is in the MLB the two stats that come up first are batting average and home runs. Yes, those are the two stats that show off how good someone is at making contact and how hard someone can hit the ball, but they aren’t the most important stat when talking about a hitters presence at the plate. They do not factor in all the possibilities...

Overall it was a down day for scoring but this lineup finished 1,629-of...
