4 years after giving up as OF, Indians' Anthony Gose hits 100 mph in debut as pitcher

There are many different paths to success in baseball, but only a few represent that of Anthony Gose. Nine years ago, Gose was an outfielder in the Toronto Blue Jays' system and among the best prospects in baseball. Baseball America ranked him as the No. 39 overall prospect. MLB Pipeline had him at No. 57. Baseball Prospectus at No. 68.

How Much Should We Care About a Pitcher’s Arm Slot?

One of the things I love most about pitching is that small adjustments can completely change a pitcher. A new pitch, an adjustment in mechanics, anything, and suddenly a mediocre or good pitcher becomes a great one. In fact, that’s one of the driving forces behind TINSTAAPP, a term coined...

NFT: Bring Donnie Baseball back!

Mattingly is upped through 2022 with the Marlins but man I'd love to see him manage the Yankees. It would be fitting for him to get a ring here. Maybe they can swap Boone for Donnie, lol. Anyway, is Boone gone after this year? Who would you like to see...

Rays bank on rookie starter Shane Baz to give bullpen some relief

The Tampa Bay Rays bullpen needs some relief of its own, and that's what rookie right-hander Shane Baz is for.

MLB Power Rankings: Cardinals fly into top 10

Two weeks to go in the regular season — it's really getting late — and we've lost another team in the MLB Power Rankings: So long, Mets! While owner Steve Cohen scrambles to find someone else to lead the baseball department in 2022 (not to mention Javier Báez’s missing earring), we will move along with the power rankings. The biggest change is the St. Louis Cardinals finding their way to the top 10. They suffered a poor June but have been OK otherwise, finally finding their stride in September. Other than October, that's probably the best time to find it. Two teams also have dropped out of the top 10 — the Yankees and Braves — but there's no reason to despair: They're still in the running for the playoffs. And now, for the next-to-next last time in 2021, here are the hottest 16 teams in Major League Baseball:

In Episode 301 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett are back, and so are The Jetsssss. Their struggles prove a useful bouncing off point for discussion of the Mets C-suite.

Then in the third half of the show, we answer your correspondence and talk a little AEW after Jarrett refuses to talk about WWE. Eh, he’s probably right.

Throw These Slow-Playing Bozos In Baseball Jail

Baseball has gotten pretty slow. Jayson Stark showed in a nifty little chart in his column Friday that the length of an average regular-season game has increased by a whopping 36 minutes over the last 40 years, from a tidy 2:33 in 1981 to a disgusting 3:09 in 2021. Not everyone is equally scandalized by this development, but the slowdown combined with baseball’s other significant aesthetic regressions is seen by the league, at least, as a major problem. The kids of this day and age, we are told, simply do not have the attention span for a three-plus-hour baseball game.
