  1. Tulsa first-base coach dies after being struck in head by line drive

    "NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The batting coach for the Tulsa Drillers was pronounced dead at a hospital Sunday evening after being struck in the head by a line drive as he stood in the first-base coach's box during a Texas League game with the Arkansas Travelers, police said..." http://sports.espn.go.com/minorlbb/news/story?id=2945798 So sad, a reminder just how dangerous those drives can be. RIP. :(

  2. Elias Free Agency Question : How Was Gagne Type A?

    Everything I have read about this incredibly stupid ranking system says that it is based on the last two years of a player's stats. However, in 2006 Gagne threw 2 IP, and in 2005 he threw 13. He has 15 IP total in his prior two years, yet he received a Type-A ranking, putting him in the top 30% (or whatever the number is) of all relief pitchers. There's got to be something more to this, and I'd like us to try and figure it out before he's dealt to the Yanks or the Sox, seeing as...

  5. Bill James Ranks Top 50 Young Talents - Cano Only Yankee

    With that in mind, Bill James set out to rank the top 50 young players in major league baseball. By young, he means players who are 29 and younger. To compare players, he devised a formula that takes both youth and talent into account. He took runs created, made a "speed adjustment," divided that total by the runs scored/allowed by that player's team to account for context, and multiplied that total by the number of seasons the player has left before he is 33 years old. For pitchers, he...

  17. Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens make A-Rod an offer (Steinbrenner comments)

    http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=ap-a-rod-mudhens&prov=ap&type=lgns That prompted Hank Steinbrenner, son of the Yankees owner, to tell the New York Times: "Does he want to go into the Hall of Fame as a Yankee, or a Toledo Mud Hen?" With that comment, does it mean Hank still wants A-Rod or is he mocking?

  18. Poll: Arod Discussion [Merged]

    I didnt see an open thread about this Inside the Lines, so I figured let me put one up. It seems everyone think A-Rod will be up for auction and the contenders for him are the Red Sox, the Mets, Angels, Dodgers, Cubs and other minor contenders aside from the Yankees. I think most of that speculation is crap. Even with other teams having more payroll flexibility, they still don't have 30 million+ per year to tie up in one player. Lets knock these guys out one by one, shall we? Lets...
