Back in February I did a story on the new humidor that’s being implemented in the Diamondbacks’ Chase Field. If you recall that story, I predicted that run production would drop by 18% or .8 runs per game. We have on month down in the 2018 season, so I thought this would be the perfect time to revisit that story...

The 2018 season is underway and we are roughly half way through the first month. Every year you have those players that start out on fire, everyone jumps on their bandwagon, and then they fizzle out only to finish the season right around their projected numbers. On the flip side, you have those slow starters that everyone thinks are in...

The results of his poor approach lead to a terrible 78 wRC+ for...

This insurgence of numbers and metrics hasn’t just seeped its way into the front offices, but into the general public as well. We can now see definitive data that leads us to...

Creeping ever closer to the long-awaited opening day, fantasy teams all over are wringing their hands and preparing for their draft day. In those first few rounds there is very little discrepancy and few choices outshine others. Taking players like Mike Trout and Max Scherzer are no-brainers, but the real questions come in finding those mid to late round diamond...
