    Rob Neyer

  6. Trading walks for singles, Cooperstown-style

    Rob Neyer

    I'm not sure how much it costs to access Bill James' website, but I'm pretty sure his recent four-part series on the 2011 Hall of Fame ballot is alone worth whatever they get. Taking Bill's work and running with it -- Joe Posnanski's quite the run...

  7. Does Kevin Brown have Cooperstown case?

    Rob Neyer

    After spending most of a column arguing that Kevin Brown's seven-year, $105 million contract wasn't nearly as bad as we think (which is true), Dan Rosenheck concludes on a more lasting matter: Brown has a much stronger case for inclusion in quite a ...

    Rob Neyer

    Tony Lee asks which team most needs a new stadium, and doesn't have much trouble coming up with the answer. Lee's big finish: All but eight of the 30 current stadiums in use in the majors were opened in the last 20 years, but those that are older ar...

  10. Werth's deal just another Boras coup

    Rob Neyer

    It's not easy to come up with something that hasn't already been said about this deal, particularly considering that everyone's pretty much saying the same thing. Everyone except Nationals GM Mike Rizzo, anyway: Nationals manager Jim Riggleman, who...

  11. Why isn't Ron Santo in the Hall of Fame?

    Rob Neyer

    Baseball players with Hall of Fame talent don't generally spend much time in the minor leagues, and Ron Santo, who died Thursday at the age of 70, was no exception. Signing with the Cubs out of high school in Seattle, Santo began his professional ...

  12. 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 ...

  13. Monday Mendozas

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are just hoping for a Game 6. Is that so much to ask for, really? Probably more than you want to know about me -- and more! -- in Jonah Keri's latest podcast. The Fielding Bible Awards are here! And I don't really disagree with ...

  14. Giants, Ron Washington moot the breaks

    Rob Neyer

    I started writing about Game 2 in the seventh inning. It looked like the Giants probably would win, but not by much. Maybe by one run, maybe two. I was sticking with my recent obsession with the ways to win: playing better, managing better, getting l...

    Rob Neyer

  16. Is Dodgers' attendance immune to losing?

    Rob Neyer

    The Dodgers are raising some ticket prices and dropping some, but apparently the average ticket price won't change much. Craig Calcaterra: But it certainly would be hard to swallow a price increase given the state of the team right now. At least...
