FG on Fox: The Precedent for Evan Gattis’ Triples

Evan Gattis was probably never fast. That is, he wasn’t fast in comparison to many baseball players he was around while coming up through the minors. He certainly isn’t fast now, and at this point, we can confidently say that he probably never will be. And that’s fine, because speed isn’t really his game: coming into the 2015 season, he had zero stolen bases and one triple...

FG on Fox: The Top Plate-Discipline Improvements of 2015

We usually turn to the tried and true method of analyzing players season by season. There’s a point at which we have to demarcate sections of a player’s career, and the beginning and end of a season give us a handy and obvious way of doing so. But there are often many changes and adjustments that go on within a season, and looking at six months of baseball as one unit misses...
