San Francisco Meetup: Tonight!

This Thursday, at the Stock in Trade bar in the Marina district in San Francisco, we’re going to have a Dodgers/Giants meetup. We’ll be talking beer and baseball with some of your favorite writers, with a bonus of a former scout and coach to talk mechanics if you like. FanGraphs, BeerGraphs and the First Base Foundation — a foundation that helps make travel sports more affordable for disadvantaged young people while also helping them get into college — are happy to invite you to this gathering of baseball nerds featuring happy hour pricing, some free appetizers, and lots of baseball talk.

    Good to see Sullivan’s not with them. Someone may actually force him to explain is Brandon Crawford BS or wear that UZR/150 crapola as a hat when he leaves.

      Will there be whining about Mean Bruce Bochy? Any chat chat about Brian Sabean not understanding OBP?

      How about a review of the Michael Morse signing? Here’s the conclusion ya’ll wrote: “Brian Sabean set his sights on right-handed power and seems to be overpaying in playing time. Morse is not going to cost much, and there is no long-term commitment. But he’s probably not really going to help the team win. He’s a bounce-back offensive candidate committed to the wrong opportunity.” – sounds like #27 ranked FO territory to me.

      Can we get an article on how bad Matt Cain’s xFIP has regressed and its a bad signing from fangraphs soon? Some mention of pixie dust and kool aid?

      That joint has a lot of good pork products. Enjoy, and that sounds like a great cause. I’d like to meet in person… a couple writers on this site. Someday. Maybe.

    How can Brandon Crawford have an UZR of -2.0 so far in 2014, Belt has a -0.3, yet Hicks has a +2.1? We’re told this stat should be looked at over the long term. But, seriously, what good is it if around 35 games into a season, it’s saying Crawford is a below average SS defender? And, how does UZR deal with all these shifts now being employed by MLB teams?…
