Player Profile #112: Chris Davis | 1B/3B | BAL

In a sense, drafting Chris Davis last year was a no-win move. Everyone knew he was going to fall from his 53-homer 2013 season, but no one really knew how far. Regardless, if you wanted a piece of him, you had to overpay. That’s precisely what I did in one league last season, and I regretted every minute of it. Actually, it’s quite possible that last season was the worst of...

Nori Aoki Should Hit Leadoff for The Giants

The San Francisco Giants officially announced on Tuesday the signing of outfielder Nori Aoki. Aoki has, over his three year career in the MLB, totaled 1531 plate appearances as a leadoff hitter and only 280 in other spots (primarily the second spot in the lineup). Sounds good, but the Giants already have a leadoff hit in Angel Pagan. Where then, does Aoki fit into this new-look...

San Francisco Giants: Some Interesting Statistics

The MLB offseason is generally pretty boring, and these are the days the world has effectively tuned out baseball. With no spring training or free agency buzz going on right now, everyone (probably even MLB executives) is focused on the NFL and college football playoffs. But don’t worry, that won’t stop me from writing about my beloved San Francisco Giants. With no major storylines...

Let’s analyze the moves so far and in the spirit of final exam week, see if we can hand out some grades. Losing Out...

Wisdom and Links: Buster Posey – Future Hall of Famer

During the first game of the World Series, I made a tweet about how Buster Posey would end up being a Hall of Famer. And I’m right, too! Well, probably right. After all, baseball is a cruel game, and poor Buster could end up getting hurt or have a career nosedive. But, hopefully that won’t happen. I mean, I sure hope that doesn’t happen. In fact, I don’t think anybody wants...

Buster Posey’s Baserunning Blues

Buster Posey hasn’t been quite himself this postseason. Through Wednesday’s game in Kansas City, he’s batted .288/.333/.288, which isn’t terrible but has included an un-Poseyish power outage. His batting line was better during the NLDS against Washington, which is ironic because most of the failures I’m about to talk about took place during that series. […]
