If we look at the methodical approach of the Mets’ front office the past few winters, and every legitimate Mets fan has, there is no conceivable scenario that Nelson Cruz ends up a New York Met for four years and $75 million dollars. And we should be glad that’s the case. In fact, I don’t want any part of Cruz for less. Not simply because of PEDs, not simply because of his age, and not […]
Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers and Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates were named American and National League Most Valuable Players tonight by members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.

Baseball America on Friday listed the Nine Key Players To Watch In Winter Ball and #8 on their list was Mets Top Prospect Cesar Puello. After missing the rest of the 2013 season due to being handed a 50 game suspension in early August for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, he is in winter ball working towards regaining the swing that helped him put up some tremendous numbers in the first half with the B- Mets where […]

Every play in every game has some effect on the odds of winning baseball game. Whether you are down by ten runs in the second inning or tied up in the bottom of the ninth, every action can be measured. Baseball has been played for over a century and a half, and Major League Baseball has been around for over a century, and most situations have been played out over and over again hundreds of […]
For the next few days, I will be highlighting some of the most popular sabermetric stats available to the public. Earlier today, we began the series with OPS/OPS+. Now we continue with wOBA… Batting Average, On-Base Percentage, and Slugging Percentage are all incomplete. Batting average doesn’t account for what type of hits a batter has. It also doesn’t account for walks. On-Base Percentage is better because it accounts for walks, but it doesn’t weigh how […]
For the next few days, I will be highlighting some of the best and most popular sabermetric stats available to the public.Today, we begin with OPS+ OPS, or On Base Plus Slugging was the first sabermetric stat to go mainstream. It is On-Base Percentage plus Slugging Percentage. It’s crude and simple, but it’s a decent quick reference tool. OPS, however, is outdone by it’s counterpart OPS+. OPS+ does something very important: puts the OPS into […]
I wanted to update this post with a chart by Mr. North Jersey who plotted David Wright’s first 87 games for each season of his career. It helps to illustrate further why I don’t see 2013 as Wright’s career year, at least not so far… Hat tip to MNJ… Original Post: Though I enjoy employing and often using many of the new advanced metrics in my own posts now, I still see some of these […]
