The Mets will look to add “depth and versatility” in lieu of pursuing high-profile free agent outfielders like Justin Upton and Yoénis Cespedes.

Okay, Ted Barrett’s Zone Was Crazy Pants

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been pointing out that the strike zone graphic used by TBS is not representative of the actual strike zone used in MLB, and is giving fans the wrong impression of the quality of the home plate umpiring in the playoffs. After nearly every NL game, we’ve seen a cascade of calls roasting that night’s umpire for making a bunch of bad calls, but in...

When Manager Joe Maddon stacks the lineup with lefties, Jorge Soler (.264 TAv), Javier Baez (.282), Austin Jackson (.198), Starlin Castro (.240), Matt Szczur (.231) and Chris Denorfia (.243) find themselves manning the bench. And when righties are needed on the […]

Cubs manager Joe Maddon's solution for improving MLB instant replay: Nerds

Never one to hold his tongue, Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon ripped an umpiring decision Wednesday night on a play at second base in which Chris Denorfia was tagged out to end the game, a 5-2 Dodgers victory. And Maddon thinks that nerds can deliver more clarity. Denorfia hit a shot to left field that Scott Van Slyke fielded off the wall and heaved to second base where an umpire...
