He’s also no longer really a legitimate option defensively at shortstop...

Nationals sign original Nat Jamey Carroll to minor league deal. Brad Wilkerson next?

A Method for Examining Two-Strike Hitting

Let’s talk about why I love Jamey Carroll. He has had — like most of us would like — his best years after the age of 30; he has played every position except catcher, including an inning of scoreless relief in 2013; he’s short; he spells his name humorously; and he plays a cop in this music video (therabouts of 1:10). But what impresses me most about him is his rare combination...

Nick Punto versus Jamey Carroll

Earlier this week, Star Tribune scribe Howard Sinker questioned rhetorically why Jamey Carroll never received the scorn that Nick Punto did.
