Twitter Mailbag: Khris Davis, Dr. Seuss, Starting Rotation

“Khris Davis, for real? Or flash in the pan?” -@IgnitorKid He likely won’t keep up his .593 slugging and .316 ISO that he posted in 153 plate appearances last year, but Khris Davis is for real. He made some clear mechanical adjustments to quicken up his… [More]

Twitter Mailbag: Bullpen Help, Trades, Pythagorean Record

“Who do you see winning the 1st base job and can we see them adding another reliever with closing experience?” -@steelmann58 Considering how seemingly all my free agent predictions this winter have been just about wrong except the Aoki-for-a-lefty deal, take the exact opposite of… [More]

Remembering Jeremy Hermida

Remember Jeremy Hermida, the guy who hit a grand slam in his first career at-bat? Remember Jeremy Hermida, whose name is mentioned in the same sentence as Kevin Kouzamoff for achieving that rare feat? Remember Jeremy Hermida, who was once the Marlins top prospect? Remember… [More]

Twitter Mailbag: Ranks, (More) Yuni, Starting Rotation

“Rank the top 5 SPs right now and what you expect at the end of the season.” -@KyleAshauer Right now, I’ll take (in no order), Clayton Kershaw, Felix Hernandez, Max Scherzer, Cliff Lee, Justin Verlander End of the year? Let’s go with Kershaw, Hernandez, Verlander,… [More]
