  1. Do you think Fiers will stay or will Peralta get called up for the next spot after he gets his rest?

  2. Carson, you’ve got 8 paragraphs/points/features on the Brewers vs. Dodgers, and not a word about how Kemp is expected to be off the DL and back in the lineup?

  3. That’s Fangraphs. Everyone else is going to be writing about Kemp anyways, so let’s look at something more obscure but still interesting!

  4. Regarding the playoff adjustment, might it make more sense to set the centre-point for this at 50%? When we’re watching a game we’re not estimating whether or not a team is more likely than average to make the playoffs; we’re interested in the binary outcome of whether or not they do.

    And implicitly, the leverage of any individual game with regards to a team’s chances is higher when those chances are already close to 50%.

    Furthermore, you could add an extra coefficient to recognize where the two teams’ chances are highly interdependent i.e. where they are likely battling for the same playoff spot.

  5. I doubt the Dodgers lineup was posted before this post was written… and there’s not really much left to say about Kemp that hasn’t already been said.

  6. Ultimately something based on Championship Leverage Index might work best:

  7. There is no way Ricky Romero is a 2, if Jake Westbrook is a 5. As an actual nerd, I can vouch that this is fact.

    REFORMULATE! (nasally screech)

  8. How about a post on how James Loney is not an advocate for Robot Umps?

  9. thats what I love about fangraphs. They don’t write about what you want and/or expect to hear.

    Although in this case I think it was just written before the announcement.

  10. Something something Candy Maldonado?

  11. Wait, there’s a pitcher named Will Smith, and you didn’t choose to arbitrarily rate him a 10?
