  1. Jose Abreu is back, so sit back and enjoy

    Christina Kahrl

    Jose Abreu is back in action, and not a moment too soon. The weather's warming up and so are the races, and with the White Sox previously getting back Chris Sale to lead the rotation and Adam Eaton to lead off, now is their chance to move above .500....

  2. Kershaw pitching his way toward history

    Christina Kahrl

    The Dodgers did it, winning their 10th game in a row to make their record 42-8 in their past 50 games. Think about that for a second, because odds are, you aren't old enough to have seen its like. So let's be blunt. Going 42-8 in 50 games, in toda...

  3. WARfare, 2013 style

    Christina Kahrl

    With the season roughly halfway over, I thought it would be a good idea to dig into the numbers to see what WAR (wins above replacement) is telling us. I'll start with a man who has been at the center of a lot of WAR talk in the last year. 1. Migu...

  4. Johnny Cueto was jobbed

    Christina Kahrl

    Last night, MLB announced the finalists for the major awards. This generated a predictable amount of snark on Twitter (then again, what doesn't?). But beyond filling time during a slow news week, the exercise did two things: It not only told us who m...

  5. Dodgers doing the necessary things

    Christina Kahrl

    Matt Kemp didn't go yard. He didn't need to. And Andre Ethier? He didn't put the lineup on his back either. What of Mattingly's mighty mites, the guys who were the toast of Los Angeles back in May? They were there, sure, but they essentially clocked ...

  6. Matusz's example might teach Moore

    Christina Kahrl

    What do we know? Let's face it, six weeks ago, if you'd said that Brian Matusz would outpitch the Rays' Matt Moore for an Orioles win, you might chalk it up to one of those things, lightning in a bottle, a random outcome, the baseball gods acting in ...

  7. NL MVP vote reassuring or exasperating?

    Christina Kahrl

    The expectation was that the NL MVP would be a two-man race, and the Baseball Writers' Association of America delivered exactly that, with left fielder Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers coming out decisively ahead of Dodgers center fielder Matt Kem...

  8. SweetSpot's NL MVP take

    Christina Kahrl

    Tuesday's National League Most Valuable Player vote probably isn't going to inspire quite the same outcry as Monday's American League outcome. That's because the AL MVP race gave us reasons to re-explore the reliably entertaining debate about whether...

  9. Baseball Prospectus -- Studying the workloads of Joba Chamberlain...

    Christina Kahrl

    As the postseason approaches, there is concern (as always) about limiting young pitchers' workloads because of previous flameouts. Baseball Prospectus finds teams are already heeding the call.

  10. MLB -- Kerry Wood, Mark Prior and the tricky notion of pitch coun...

    Christina Kahrl

    Mark Prior. Kerry Wood. Good examples of pitch counts destroying a pitcher's career, right? But in other examples -- Livan Hernandez, Tim Lincecum, Curt Schilling -- BP explains that not all pitch counts are the same.
