The WAR between Studs and Bums

On Wednesday night, Carlos Gomez went 4-5 with two triples, three runs scored, and three RBIs — a mighty successful day at the office for the Brewers’ center fielder. Gomez continues to build on a strong finish to the 2012 season and appears to be… [More]

Wily Peralta’s Release Points and Sliders

From the get-go, the Los Angeles Dodgers hit Wily Peralta yesterday. Carl Crawford started the damage by singling off of Peralta’s very first offering. The next two outs would be Peralta’s best sanctuary from the Dodgers’ offense, and the lonely first inning run simply foreshadowed… [More]
