It’s the weekend, there’s a big storm coming into town tomorrow. What a day to think about the spring training sun that is soon to come.
Hard to believe that pitchers and catchers will report next month, but here we are.
On to the links.
- Fangraphs is great. I use it for pretty much all stats these days. Yesterday, they published their top 26 prospects for the Phillies.
- Not to be outdone, they also put up their ZiPS projections for the season. Personally, I’m a little underwhelmed.
- So the going rate for a centerfielder like Harrison Bader was $10.5 million. Glad the Phillies passed on that.
- Chris Sale has been in Atlanta for about 15 minutes and already signed an extension. Wonder how much is going to Braves charity.
- Watching Pitching Ninja do “swords” on Twitter is fun and enjoyable. Creating a stat for it seems a little unnecessary.
- I don’t want to post about it, but this should be getting much more traction and flat out outrage than it currently is getting.
