  1. Gonzalez is good, but he's no Beltre

    Rob Neyer

    FanGraphs' Dave Cameron: "I like the Adrian Gonzalez deal for Boston, but I wonder how many Red Sox fans realize 2011 Gonzalez will be a downgrade from 2010 Beltre?" At the risk of being terribly presumptuous, I'm going to guess that Cameron's not...

  2. Are Game 2 starters closer than they look?

    Rob Neyer

    Dave Cameron on our Game 2 starters: In some ways, C.J. Wilson and Matt Cain are polar opposites. Wilson's a lefty, while Cain throws with his right hand. Cain throws a ton of fastballs, while Wilson has basically abandoned his this year. Wilson is...

  3. Does 'Jayson Werth problem' have solution?

    Rob Neyer

    Dave Cameron on the Jayson Werth Problem: Managers already were able to bring in situational lefties to attack the middle of the Phillies line-up in high leverage situations, as we saw in the NLCS. Removing Werth from the equation exacerbates the p...

  4. Giants faced with unattractive DH options

    Rob Neyer

    Regarding the burning question of who should DH for the Giants, Dave Cameron comes up with four possibilities: 1. Give the job to Pablo Sandoval. 2. Give the job to Pat Burrell (but who would play left field?). 3. Give the job to Aubrey Huff...

  5. Wednesday Wangdoodles

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are working really hard at not caring what you think about them. Definitely a work in progress, though ... Before last night's action, Dave Cameron handicapped the National League West and concluded -- because they have (or had) a ...

  6. Don't hand out NL MVP quite yet

    Rob Neyer

    Dave Cameron on his National League MVP pick: I suggested that I'd lean toward voting for Troy Tulowitzki, and that was before he launched two more home runs on Saturday. His numbers in September are just crazy good (.357/.407/1.000, .577 wOBA),...

  7. Cahill, BABiP, Cy Young, and the A's

    Rob Neyer

    As Dave Cameron wrote last night, "The Trevor Cahill for Cy Young bandwagon lasted four days." After beating the Indians last week, Cahill's record was 14-5 and Cahill's ERA was 2.43, which did lead to some talk about Cahill's Cy Young worthiness....

  8. The meaning of Trevor Cahill

    Rob Neyer

    Preparatory to a larger (and future) discussion about how we should talk about Cy Young candidates, Dave Cameron introduces a highly relevant subject: One comment that keeps arising, however, is about the correlation between Trevor Cahill's BABIP a...

  9. Picking your franchise player ...

    Rob Neyer

    An age-old question, via Dave Cameron: A few weeks ago, I was asked the popular barstool argument question -- if you could start a franchise with just one player -- with contracts and dollars being irrelevant -- who would it be? I'd guess that a lo...

  10. Should Giants worry about the Freak?

    Rob Neyer

    From the game that keeps on giving, Dave Cameron finds a pretty good reason to be really worried about the Giants' best pitcher. Is Timmy broken? Last night, [Tim] Lincecum faced the Dodgers, and while the game was more notable for what happened la...

  11. Wednesday Wangdoodles

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links probably won't be too sad if you ignore them ... but then again, why take that chance? Dave Cameron on The Other Great Rookie. There are just so many things right about, I don't know where to start ... Except to say that if you'...

  12. Are Bay and Vazquez victims of New York?

    Rob Neyer

    Have Jason Bay and Javier Vazquez succumbed to the pressure of playing in New York? Dave Cameron isn't buying it: Bay is hitting .308/.406/.508 at Citi Field, but just .246/.333/.333 on the road. He has twice as many extra base hits in front of thos...

  13. Weighing Papelbon vs. Bard

    Rob Neyer

    No, Jonathan Papelbon isn't the pitcher he was two years ago. And yes, last night's loss was rough. But does that mean it's time to replace Papelbon with Daniel Bard? Well, (as Dave Cameron writes), maybe ... Except, you don't really want Daniel Bar...

  14. Can Smoak Monster get Rangers off island?

    Rob Neyer

    Yeah, the Rangers were supposed to win the American League West (according to me, anyway). And yeah, they're in last place with a 5-9 record. Too early to panic? As Dave Cameron writes, maybe not: Chris Davis is, once again, struggling at the plate...

  15. Mariners win despite odd choice of reliever

    Rob Neyer

    Yes, the Mariners beat the A's last night. But this is 2010 and we've got bloggers like Dave Cameron who can't help seeing the killer UV rays in each beam of sunlight ... I'd like to start off on a cheerful note, but unfortunately, there is one gla...

  16. Is Detroit's Coke the real thing?

    Rob Neyer

    My favorite thing about spring training? I mean, when I'm not actually there? Trying to guess who's going to grab those No. 5-starter slots. Speaking of which, here's Dave Cameron on the Tigers: Last week, we talked about Kyle Farnsworth, and I app...
