Why the Pirates Gifted Juan Nicasio

Juan Nicasio is arguably having his best major league season. As FanGraphs managing editor Dave Cameron wrote Wednesday, we are seeing fewer “bewildering” transactions in baseball these days. Many teams are thinking in similar ways, hiring similar people, and using similar information to make decisions. While that makes for more efficient decision making, it also makes for fewer...

Phase One of Juan Nicasio’s Reclamation Is Complete

Don Cooper of the Chicago White Sox, for example, is known for teaching his pitchers the cutter. The Mets’ Dan Warthen is known for the slider. Dave Duncan, in his time with Oakland and St. Louis, developed a reputation for...

Juan Nicasio: Ray Searage’s Newest Success?

The Juan Nicasio Relief Experiment, Already In Progress

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 a starter...

Nicasio acquired by the Dodgers

Juan Nicasio will no longer be wearing a Rockies uniform, but he still might be a familiar sight on the mound at Coors Field. Monday, the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired the 28-year-old right-hander, whom the Rockies had previously designated for assignment, for a player-to-be-named later or cash. Nicasio will reportedly ostensibly be competing for a back-end spot in Los Angeles rotation...

Life as a Colorado Rockies fan

When you hear New York Yankees, what do you think of? Championships, Steinbrenner, Jeter? What about the St. Louis Cardinals? Overachievers, winners, consistent? What about the Colorado Rockies? The Colorado Rockies have once again begun their annual descent to the bottom of the NL West. Plagued by injuries and the same problems as last year, and the year before that, and the before...
