Is Catcher Pitch Framing Fully Appreciated Yet?

Last night when I was watching the Gold Glove awards being announced, I started thinking about how the awards were doing a much better job this year of going to people with actual good defense. That is opposed to the past trend of giving out an award because of a good offensive season, or highlight reel plays that would be routine plays by better defenders. Basically, there weren’t...

Charlie Morton tries to put it all together against the Diamondbacks

If you remember way back to the Nate McLouth trade, the Pirates weren’t initially interested in Charlie Morton because they thought he’d be one of the best ground-ball-inducing pitchers in the Major Leagues. Initially, he looked like he had the sort of stuff that could pile up strikeouts, and it was only after his disastrous 2010 season that he refocused and became the “Ground...

Gregory Polanco’s promotion: this time it’s different

After the disastrous final years of the Dave Littlefield era, I didn’t think I could be shocked by another baseball trade. Littlefield’s drive to acquire veterans that would somehow add up to an 82-win Pirate team was so monomaniacal that it went from surprising to a little bit funny to outright sad. When Neal Huntington took over in 2007, it became immediately clear that no...
