Can Zack Cozart Keep This Up?

Zack Cozart made his MLB debut with the Reds in 2011, with an extremely short big league stint followed up by three uninspiring offensive seasons. In his three full seasons Cozart was mostly a defense-first shortstop, with his wRC+ of 83 in 2012. It bottomed out in 2014 when Cozart was the worst qualified hitter in baseball according to FanGraphs’ leaderboard. But 2015 so far...

Flipping the calendar makes a difference for Eugenio Suarez

When the Cincinnati Reds traded for Eugenio Suarez over the winter it was hailed as he 9th best move of the offseason by Dave Cameron. It seemed that the acquisition of a young shortstop with big league service time, who outperformed Zack Cozart at the plate in 2014, was a sign that the team had found the guy to replace Cozart if he couldn’t get things turned around and rather...

The Best and Worst of Marcus Semien

A cursory examination of the WAR leaderboards for shortstops in 2015 shows a few surprising developments. At the very top, we have the nice blend of defensive and offensive aptitude in Zack Cozart, and the mainly defensive-minded duo of Brandon Crawford (who has surprised at the plate this year) and Andrelton Simmons. Then, where we […]

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Apr 29

Yesterday I selected a pair of Yankees for the second straight day as well as advised you go with Michael Wacha at home against the Phillies. Well, the Phillies were friskier than I’d hoped, and Wacha allowed 4 ER in 5.2 IP for just 11.35 points — not what I wanted from my ace SP. Thankfully J.A. Happ was just 1.9% selected as he turned in a 30.8 point performance! I made a late...
