Orioles continue to cut it close with win over Blue Jays

The Orioles have only scored two runs in 21 innings against the Blue Jays, but Saturday night’s 2-1 victory at Oriole Park had the heady feel of one of those extra-inning wins that made 2012 such a magical year and the O’s still have a chance to win the series if they can muster some offense against Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle. David Lough eventually delivered a game-winning...

Following further evaluation by doctors, everything seems to have cleared up and Lough was back with...

Even if The Orioles Won the Valencia/Lough Trade, it Still Made Sense for the Royals

Wil Myers won the AL Rookie of the Year Award last year. He must have dominated all other rookies in all stats, including advanced stats. That is actually not true. His WAR in Fangraphs was 2.4. The exact same WAR as David Lough, who was last week traded by the Royals to the Orioles in exchange for Danny Valencia. Last year, Lough had a slash of .286/.311/.413. Not too bad, if not...

Going to WAR between Wil Myers and David Lough

If the Royals kept Wil Myers and didn’t trade for James Shields, Wade Davis and Elliot Johnson, would the Royals make the playoffs? We’ll never know for sure, but using WAR (Wins Above Replacement), we can see if having Myers patrol right field with the Royals would have made a difference. To start, I’m going to compare the stats of Wil Myers and David Lough, who played most...

The Royals have a bright future, but questions remain

It was a long time coming. After the many years of losing seasons, promising players who went bust and some bad luck, the Royals finished the season 86-76, their best record since a 92-70 1989 season. It was disappointing they didn’t make the playoffs, but they stayed in the Wild Card race until the last four games of the season. Instead of giving up after being eliminated from...
