Does Being A Ground Ball Pitcher Equate to Better Run Suppression?

There is this idea out there that being a “ground ball pitcher” means that said pitcher is more likely to give up fewer runs; after all, there is zero chance that a ground ball turns into a guaranteed grand slam (I say guaranteed because of Luis Sojo). Now, giving up a ton of ground ball ...

Taking A Look At The NFC West

During the past off-season, the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers engaged in a massive build-up of talent (sometimes referred to as the arm’s race). This build up of talent has put both teams on the trendy picks for the NFC West Title, and the Super Bowl. That also means that one of these ...

Does Major League Baseball Really Need A League Wide “Face” To Promote The Game?

Jayson Sterk is one of the few widely respected baseball writers on ESPN.  His articles (despite not using saber) are usually must read; that includes his most recent article. It does raise an interesting question, and it is something that definitely deserves attention. That being said, it is a premise I completely disagree with. The ...

There will be an American League team post today; a National League team post tomorrow, and a comparison of the two starting line-ups (I would create from the rosters ...

Of The Mariners’ Two All-Stars; Who Is Better: Felix or Iwakuma ?

The Seattle Mariners have two All-Stars this year, and they are both starting pitchers. Hisashi Iwakuma and Felix Hernandez have been an impressive one-two punch at the top of the M’s rotation. These two guys have undoubtedly been two incredible bright spots on-what is perceived to be-one of the weakest pitching staffs in the last ...

Sports with Neil Podcast; Episode 6: Fourth of July Edition

In this Fourth of July podcast, I address the situation with Aaron Hernandez…and express my confusion at why someone in his position would throw away millions of dollars. That’s not the only thing that I talked about though; as the Mariners and Seattle Storm also made an appearance in this episode. It’s a fun, and ...

Taking A Look At Ray Allen’s Impact on The Miami Heat’s Title Defense

Ray Allen is the best three-point shooter to ever play the game…well, since the three-point line actually became a thing. Throughout his 18-year career he has been the sharpshooter from beyond the arc. It has been a skill set that has served him well; in fact, helped him win a pair of championship rings. With ...
