Springer and Arcia had the two worst in-zone contact rates […]

They went from 106 losses in 2011, to 107 in 2012 and ultimately reaching the high (or low) water...

Is George Springer Morphing Into Beltranwell?

I admit it; I booed Carlos Beltran every time he showed up at the JuiceBox after jilting Houston for the New York Mets so many years ago.  It wasn’t just that he doody-hosed us but he doody-hosed us for the Mets.  I despise the NY Mets and desperately wanted Beltran’s five tool clinic he put on for the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2004 playoffs to continue in the 2005 regular...
