Indians named Fangraphs “Far too early sleeper team” for 2015

Though we’re still a few months away from the first glove pops of spring training, Fangraphs has gone ahead and named the Cleveland Indians as their “far too early sleeper team” for the 2015 season.

The table was set for the Kansas City Royals to come through with a lead in the bottom third of Game 7 of the World Series against the San Francisco Giants. With a runner on first and no outs, Royals power-hitter Eric Hosmer hit a ground ball that looked like it was going to make it out of the infield for a single. That would have set the Royals up with runners on first and third...

Kansas City Royals and SF Giants Meet in a Clash of Cultures

The 2014 World Series is being painted as a clash between two very different baseball clubs, but not for the right reasons.

Choating One Away

The error was almost incidental, the speeding up of the inevitable. After all, even if Randy Choate throws a strike to first base, there are still runners at second and third with one out with a left-handed Joe Panik coming up, meaning that Choate would have likely stayed in for that.  Anyone want to bet on whether he’d have gotten out [...]
