  1. Maybe he’s good friends with Matt Kemp. For 800k, it’s worth it to see Kemp smile.

  2. Until you can quantify grit, sabermetrics will never be a legitimate endeavor. I blame it on Billy Beane, for writing that horrible book, Moneyball.

  3. You could be an Emajor if you better understood math. If grit has any consistent tangible affect on a players stats, then it is apart of saber metric formulas implicitly.

  4. I thought the second sentence of my comment was an obvious indicator of my sarcasm. I guess I’m just not funny.

  5. You could be a Drummajor if you understood math AND were funny.

  6. You’re the funniest diatonic triad I’ve ever seen… he’s just not clever enough to realize it!

    Since grit is “apart of saber metric formulas” I guess your agreeing that it hasn’t been quantified? So what’s the argument? :-)

  9. Veteran presence!

  10. The Dodgers are adding to their stash of players who could be had for an NRI but instead have to be paid real moeny. Matt Treanor felt lonely.

  11. If you haven’t noticed, Ned Coletti has a thing for has-beens.

  12. Phew.

    Glad the Dodgers signed him before Sabean could swoop him up.

  13. What, no room in the Diamondbacks’ infield?

  14. Ned Colletti is a cruel joke gone to far. why is he still employed? he makes me hate being a dodger fan

  15. if you didn’t like his writing, then I bet you didn’t enjoy his directing of moneyball either

  16. ” Adam Dunnn ”

    The extra “n” is for negativeWAR

  17. I still remember that lopsided trade: Kennedy and Kent Bottenfield for JIM EDMONDS!!! I remember at the time of the trade asking my uncle why, as an Angel fan, he was excited by this trade. He was happy to get an almost 20-game winner (I forget how many wins he had, and am too lazy to look it up), even though he didn’t miss a lot of bats, and he had a high ERA and put lots of runners on base. I thought he was one of the worst 18 or 19 game winners of all time, and the future proved me right. How the Angels could have made this trade was beyond me. it wasn’t like Kennedy projected to be a stud or anything either.

  18. Its sad that Kennedy was one of the few bright spots on the Mariners offense. I’m actually going to miss him in Seattle.
