That video does a nice job summing up what a lot of people have noticed and thought. I also read that even the games outside have had warmer temps than in years past. So comparing it to last year and the year before could be a challenge as well.

Like someone else posted, MLB is all about stats and numbers. Obviously people are going to be able to dig up dirt.

Bob Arthur knows a lot about measuring drag. What he doesn't know a lot about is how to do a proper study. Comparing a few pitchers on a few teams to the entire MLB data is wrong. He should be comparing the same teams/stadiums and pitchers from the regular season to the post-season. Then he would have "proof" that there's a difference between playoffs and regular season. All he has is data that could very likely have a sampling effect that could easily disappear when he actually does the correct analysis. The numbers from previous years show clearly no change between regular season and post-season (2015-2017), so if there is a true change, was it intentional? Assuming that MLB has done something intentionally to somehow skew the results, in a way that is unpredictable, is just more crazy conspiracy theory b.s. In fact, an argument could be made based on team makeup and data that reduced travel would hurt the Dodgers and Yankees more than the other teams, which then leads to why would MLB try to give two teams in their largest markets a handicap?

What is clear by Arthur's analysis is that MLB could test each baseball to make sure it meets a specific drag number and throw out those out of range. Then there wouldn't be so much wasted time on such an idiotic issue.

Stearns probably had no interest in getting a C because the Brewers need a C. It makes much more sense to trade for 3B when it's not needed, and then move the other 3B to 2B, then trade for a 2B, but since the 3B is now at 2B, then the new 2B goes to SS

Instant win off Chapman of all closers. I really figured he was working a walk with such a hot hitter.

These closer choke jobs bode well for someone buying high on Hader.

Nats at Astros should be a good one.
Both teams have great starting pitching & with Cole being held back for a possible ALCS Gm7 he is now able to go for Gm 1...

Glad the Astros could pull it out in the end! Could this be the most talented starting staffs to ever face off in the World Series?

Or maybe all the Ivy League educated GMs believe that even the very best relievers are incredibly volatile & therefore not worth overpaying for (unless you are selling out to win your first WS in a century plus).

I don't think they care if it has been a century. They mostly care about not getting fired. And they make rash decisions every year. Their Ivy League pedigrees don't make them immune to that.

Kind of cool seeing Martine be in a world series. Then, also seeing Brantley, he went through a lot to get there!
