Draft Day Arbitrage: Getting A Fister From A Stranger

So yes, this is an overrated post but since I'm not Grey and Grey ain't me, you don't see the word 'Schmohawk' in the title.

A faux hawk says to me you want to look like an edgy bad boy but...

Nationals Build Potential Super-Team, Add Max Scherzer

Here’s maybe the simplest way to put this: a season ago, by his peripherals, Tanner Roark was about a three-win pitcher. By his actual runs allowed, he was about a five-win pitcher. He actually finished with a higher RA9-WAR than Jordan Zimmermann and Doug Fister and a lot of other guys too. At present, the […]
