The Night That Blew Up Baseball

I’m shocked. I’m floored, really, at what’s happened in the last 12 hours. I’m sad that Dee Gordon is gone, because he was immensely fun to watch and probably the nicest ballplayer I have ever spoken to, and thrilled in the manner in which he left. I feel for Dan Haren, another good guy who seemed so happy to be able to pitch back at home, and pleased that he’s no longer...

The Juan Nicasio Relief Experiment, Already In Progress

When the Dodgers claimed Juan Nicasio off waivers last month, it was assumed that he was acquired mostly to pitch in relief. Ignoring the fact that the depth chart would currently have him start, it’s not necessarily a bad idea. Nicasio struggled significantly as a starter for Colorado in the first half of last season. He relies heavily on two pitches, so sustained success as...

Nicasio will reportedly ostensibly be competing for a back-end spot in Los Angeles...

If you haven’t been particularly excited by Joel Peralta, Kyle Jensen, Mike Bolsinger and now Juan Nicasio, acquired from the Rockies this afternoon, you could probably be forgiven. None are going to sell tickets. Several looked pretty bad in the more traditional stats, and so you get why these minor moves have been difficult for some to swallow.

Greg Amsinger called Buster Posey’s walk off homer

During the end of the Rockies-Giants game, MLB Tonight anchor Greg Amsinger said that he “got that feeling in my bad knee” about Buster Posey, inferring that he’d hit a walk off. As Juan Nicasio began his delivery to the plate, Amsinger then predicted we’d be hearing a Duane Kuiper home run call. Sure enough… That is pretty awesome, and the in studio reaction of Amsinger...
