Peter Gammons: Winning time in Cleveland, elite rotation, and utilizing the new draft system

We get why it has long been said for Cleveland to have been built on pessimism. It is a great, proud city that the Rust Belt economy left behind, less than half the population it had in the Fifties, an exodus of Fortune 500 companies and despite a spectacular suburban lifestyle, has a shocking percentage of its […]

Peter Gammons: The 2011 MLB Draft, 5 years later

It’s been five years since that draft, which is approximately the time teams should realistically wait before assessing the MLB amateur draft.

Previewing 2016’s Best Fastballs with Saber-Scout Pitch f/x

Around this time last season, I wrote about the most untouchable pitches in baseball throughout 2014. I don’t usually like to toot my own horn around these parts, but I will today, because I had a dandy of a time writing it, and I feel like it’s one of the best pieces of work I’ve […]
