  2. Bill James on King Felix's time

    Rob Neyer

    It's subscriber-only and I don't even know if I'm supposed to do this, but Bill James runs through the math, finds that CC Sabathia was probably closer to Felix Hernandez than maybe you thought, but does wind up with the same answer as the Cy Young v...

  3. Do Cy Young results signal Hall of Fame shift?

    Rob Neyer

    Does Felix Hernandez's Cy Young Award (Craig Calcaterra asks) signal that Hall of Fame voters will worry less about wins and more about the things a pitcher can control? I'm not hopeful. Partially because there is so much more of a time investment ...

  4. Can a losing pitcher win the Cy Young?

    Rob Neyer

    OK, so we have our first Cy Young winner with a 13-12 record. That's some sort of progress, I suppose. How far can we take this thing, though? Would King Felix have won if he'd gone 12-13, instead? Or 9-16? I wasn't able to conduct an exhaustive s...

  5. A.L. C.Y. pits Wins against ERA

    Rob Neyer

    If Felix Hernandez wins the Cy Young Award today, those howls you'll hear from our nation's leafy suburbs will be coming mostly from a certain generation of baseball writers, many of whom fought like blazes to keep on-base percentage from entering th...

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links can't be held responsible for what they might do later this morning, if more than one crazy voter or two leave Felix Hernandez off their Cy Young ballots completely ... The Platoon Advantage's Bill offers a gentle corrective to the ...

  7. Bobby Cox does what he (thinks) he has to do

    Rob Neyer

    Craig Calcaterra (who's a Braves fan, by the way) on tonight's shocking lineup change: I know Troy Glaus can't field anymore either, but what choice does Bobby Cox have? All the players said the right things last night, but you know deep down no...

  8. Braves' Conrad shouldn't have been there

    Rob Neyer

    You hate to see that happen. I don't know Brooks Conrad. I don't know anything about him (except that right now he's probably wishing his parents hadn't named him Brooks). I can't help feeling for him tonight, though. Because he will forever be...

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are vacationing near San Francisco, and can't help hoping the Padres pull off a miracle this weekend so there's more baseball on Monday ... With October dawning, Nick Nelson is concerned about Francisco Liriano and Carl Pavano, both...

  10. Maybe this 'loss' is really a win

    Rob Neyer

    The Mariners lost today, 1-0. Felix Hernandez lost today, 1-0. This doesn't sit well with Aaron Gleeman: Hernandez is now 12-12 despite a league-best 2.31 ERA in a league-high 242 innings. Clearly he just doesn't "know how to win." After all, if...

  11. 20-game winners alive and well

    Rob Neyer

    Fact: Nobody won 20 games in 2009. Fact: Two pitchers have already won 20 games in 2010, and at least two more (Ubaldo Jimenez and Adam Wainwright) are likely to. Question: Has the slide in 20-game winners been not only arrested, but reversed? ...

  13. Monday Mendozas

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are professionals. Today's links don't have time for small talk. Why should today's links bill you for small talk, when they enjoy small talk as much as you do? While I work on coming up with a new way to express my outrage, IIATMS ...

  14. Twins' Liriano deserving ... but will lose

    Rob Neyer

    More on a popular subject from the mailbag: Rob, will someone in the BBWAA note that Francisco Liriano is having an excellent season, with better HR/9 and K/9 ratios than King Felix and practically the same BB/9? It's strange, but he is not in the ...

  15. Sabermetrics will survive the war of WARs

    Rob Neyer

    Fresh from the mailbag, a matter of pressing urgency ... Not sure if you saw it, but B-R.com updated their park factors and Sabathia is now the WAR leader. I posted something about it on my blog, but I think the bigger issue deals with your plea in...

  16. Dispensing with another argument for Sabathia

    Rob Neyer

    The Platoon Advantage would like to clear up a lingering misconception: What I do want to address is one line of argument the pro-Sabathia crowd keeps bringing up in this debate. You see it mostly in angry comments to articles like the ones I ju...
