Mercurial_Outfielder berselius Maybe they should switch Brenly with Moreland. Zonk seems like the type that would at least be open-mided to new learnings.

berselius No kidding? That's the second oddly-similar-to-smart thing I've heard him say the last few times I've listened to him. Maybe I ought to give the TV guys more of a chance this year?...
Dude, who is doing the PBP MLB.com for today's game? He just mentioned that Pena's hitting line last year suffered a very low BABIP, so the low numbers were affected by bad luck. He also mentioned that Pena's GB% had a huge spike last year, which may account for some of that.
WTF? Since when do announcers know about BABIP? Who is this man?
Brett Jackson only draws walks off of overhand pitchers, apparently.

mb21 If they had Cliff Lee they'd probably keep him on the bench to back up Silva.
mb21 Starting rotation ---> Dempster, Berg, Maine, Silva, Russell
RiceCube Moreland has declared it a triple. Perez is redeemed.
RiceCube Dammit Nando! Maybe he just needs glasses.
mb21 I thought Russell was the one replacing Wells? Berg would be better taking Z's spot when the Cubs move him to middle relief.
Who was pitching while the A's scored those 298 runs? I zoned out after they put the non-prospect scrubs in the game.
RiceCube Scores a run. He is now the game's hero and must do the press conference.
RiceCube They should give a major league contract to anyone who draws a walk today. And fire anyone who gets caught stealing.
These are real prospects in the game now. My gratitude for the lack of a TV feed during Barney's at bat is dwindling.
Moreland vs. Ditka ----> Singing deathmatch
mb21 Yeah, I think what I need to understand better is basically which positions matter and which don't. I'm still stuck at "top of order good, bottom of order baaad", which apparently doesn't work since Kosuke should be either batting 1st or 7th.
RiceCube Koyie would be 4-3. He gets an extra .25 successful AB for every finger he once lost.
Is Geo 0 for 3 now? With a should-have-been GIDP? Fuck that, DFA him.
mb21 To tell the truth, I don't really understand how that lineup calculator works. Lineups are sometimes completely different than the ones above them, and changing the model years completely screws everything up.
Plus the entire Cubs lineup basically projects to being not-too-bad-but-nothing-special, so probably the only thing that's really clear is that you're fine as long as you don't lead off with Soriano or have Soto hit 6th or 7th.
Byrd ------> Optimal #3 hitter
Every article should be tagged like this. It would make it so easy to find everything.
