The Anti-Cy Young Awards

The first annual Dan Meyer Awards were a big success. While most of the world is focusing on players that succeeded in 2013, the DMAs focused on the dark side of batting statistics. Today, we are focusing on pitchers who were terrible in 2013. And despite this being more of a pitching era than a hitting era, there are no shortage of terrible pitching performances in this past season...

Early Run Proves Costly, Aeros Lose 1-0

Akron, OH – The New Britain Rock Cats scored once, but it was all that was needed for the victory as they defeated the Akron Aeros 1-0 in a pitcher's duel on Thursday night at Canal Park. Neither lineup could rally as the starting pitchers Will Roberts and Kyle Davies were dominant, only allowing 1 run and 7 hits between the two of them. The Rock Cats wasted no time in...

Twins add pitcher Kyle Davies on minor league deal

The Minnesota Twin signed  right handed pitcher Kyle Davies to a minor league deal. Davies, 29, has spent seven seasons at the major league level. Davies addition does little to help the Twins rotation as he figures to serve primarily as organizational depth. In his last big league season Davies finished with a 6.75 ERA before he was released by Kansas City. He spent the remainder...

Royals Revival

The Kansas City Royals have been irrelevant in the Wild Card Era.  The franchise has endured 17 losing seasons since 1995 and finished above .500 only once in 2003 thanks to this historic night.  Basically, if not for the Pittsburgh Pirates two-decade-old disappearing act, the Royals would have the honor of least competitive franchise in MLB. In recent years, the starting pitching...

How bad are the Kansas City Royals

This team is hopeless. Dayton Moore has run it into the ground. The Glass family hasn’t been willing to spend to keep pace with the big-market clubs. Ned Yost is a terrible in-game strategist. He mismanages his bullpen. “The Process” is just a myth. Our so-called “best farm system in baseball” means nothing at the big league level. Something about our development of young...

Game Picks - Thursday: April 12, 2012

Why doesn't a second straight positive day feel better than it does? On a day when the Athletics and Padres were picked and won, there should be some positive feelings about that, right? Perhaps it was knowing the day it could have been if for some reason Justin Verlander pitched one-hit ball for eight innings on 81 pitches but suddenly looked like putty in the ninth. Perhaps...

The low-pay, sort-of desperate minor-league deal

Last Friday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN said the Mets, Reds, Blue Jays and Mariners have been “keeping tabs” on free-agent LHP Jeff Francis. Matthew Cerrone: I’ve also heard the Twins, Cubs and at least two or three others teams are interested in Francis as well. In addition to Francis, teams are also looking at Kyle Davies, Zack Duke, Jon Garland, Rich Harden, Livan Hernandez...

Swingman analysis of Davies, Duke, Harden and Penny

Sandy Alderson said on a conference call yesterday that, in addition to a right-handed outfielder and a stop-gap shortstop, he’s still looking for a ‘swingman.’ “We continue to try to add depth at Triple-A to give us the potential for the emergency call-up guys that have some major league experience, but not necessarily guys that we expect to make the club out of spring training...
