Alex Kirilloff has the same number of hits in the playoffs as Mike Trout. Sorry, I forgot my parasol, so I made my own shade. An important aspect to him starting a playoff game shows -- Oh, by the way, in case you didn't hear, Alex Kirilloff made his...

Andrew Vaughn, hmm. A classic case of team ready to win, having the parts to do it, but are they thinking long-term to save money? Like Altuve trying to get cereal, going with the latter always wins. Never trust teams to promote prospects. It's good self-care...

The Padres took a turn as America’s team this summer, partly because Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a grand slam on a 3-0 pitch when his team had a three-run lead, partly because the whole team pitched in to make the name Slam Diego stick, partly because we...

I was tempted to do a rookie outlook post for the entire Marlins organization. Here's me putting guys in categories in my brain: "Okay, Jesus Aguilar, you stay where you are. Everyone else take a step forward." Seeing one player with his head low, "Wait,...

Where will Kris Bryant, Gary Sánchez, and others end up at the non-tender deadline. I asked. You answered.

Predicting rookie call-ups is a lot harder this preseason than in past, because of the previous year shizzshow. Usually a team calls up a guy in September, lets them play for a few weeks, then they appear ticketed for an April call-up in the next season. Or...

The champions enter 2021 with more answers than questions, just as they’ve entered the past few seasons but now featuring the added benefit of some shiny new rings to verify that they are in fact the best as this game.  Their minor league system,...

As we move perilously close to the BBWAA Hall of Fame vote, the Veteran’s Committee vote is also coming soon. The current era on the docket is the 1950-1969 era. As we have seen in previous articles, many of the players have straddled the 1960s and 1970s,...

A first-round pick in the 2019 draft, the right-hander out of Ball State University delivers electric stuff from a lean frame.

Will Kris Bryant, Gary Sánchez, Tommy Pham and others be traded, tendered a contract, or set free?

So, there was some high drama behind the scenes for this rookie outlook post. Prospect Itch does not, under any circumstances, agree with me writing or promoting Cristian Pache in any way. Thinks he's overrated and might struggle to hit .220. Others in my...

What should the Yankees do with Gary Sánchez after his awful 2020? Their options are both limited and unappealing.
Razzball   Nov 19th, 3:00am ET
Inspired by JKJ's recent lament on the St. Louis Cardinals, combined with my First Year Player Drafts informed by The Prospect Itch and Hobbs, as well as noted scout John Sickels' "Shadow Twins" series of articles, I wanted to reveal my own mourning process...

The temperature reads 23 degrees as I write this sentence, so Arizona sounds pretty great to me right now. The high for Sunday (today) is 82.  That’s probably cold comfort for Diamondbacks fans, who find their club somewhat adrift at the tail...

"Wonder Twins power activate! In the form of a string bean!" That's what goes through my mind every time I see Triston McKenzie. If Triston McKenzie and Deivi Garcia were ever on a seesaw, they'd both be in the air with their legs dangling. Triston McKenzie...

One last review of the NL West big leaguers who remain (mostly) prospect-eligible heading into the offseason, including Joey Bart, Luis Patiño, and Victor Gonzalez.
Razzball   Nov 9th, 3:00am ET
There's literally thousands of rookies to talk about this offseason, which is why this series is going deeper than usual. Will go over sleepers next, that's my promise to you, which I say as I announce my 2024 presidential campaign over Zoom while not wearing...

A few days ago, the Pirates made Chris Archer walk the plank.  They paid lip service to bringing him back at a reduced rate, but keeping him around seems like inviting an ill wind. Every time a Pittsburgh fan sees him in uniform, a painting in an attic...

Ben Lindbergh and guest co-host Steven Goldman of Baseball Prospectus banter about MLB’s Friday news dump, covering the Red Sox hiring Alex Cora, the Mets cleaning house in the front office and the potential for new owner Steve Cohen to be baseball’s...

These 2021 fantasy baseball rookies aren't in order. My Randy Arozarena 2021 fantasy and Sixto Sanchez 2021 fantasy were 1A and 1B. But this one, I don't know where it ranks. I just wanted to get out of the bubble, unmask the 'stache and stretch my legs with...
