Baseball links from around the sabersphere...

  • The Hall of Not Famous Enough | Joe Blogs
    A list of players who are at or around the level of the average Hall-of-Famer at his position, but receive almost no Hall of Fame consideration (from both voters and fans).
  • Remembering Wade Boggs’ Dominance | Fangraphs
    Now, Wade Boggs was no Barry Bonds, but he sure was more impressive than I had been giving him credit for and in fact, if not for the three years of age difference, Boggs is a very similar player to Albert Pujols.
  • MVPolanco | Brotherly Glove
    Polanco’s plate presence is unlike any Phillie in recent memory. He never looks overmatched or overwhelmed. He doesn’t walk a lot, but rarely chases bad balls. You never have to worry about a strikeout, because he swings and misses less than half as much as the rest of the league. He seems to perform better with two strikes than with none.
  • Bartolo Colon partying like it’s 2003. | It's About the Money
    Yes I know it’s only one start, on April 20th no less. And yes, Colon is still not in the best shape of his life, and will probably have at least a couple of clunkers before he breaks down at some point mid-season. But for now the guy has been an incredibly valuable asset for this team, and has done more than just about anyone thought he would in 2011.
  • Lowest RBI per HR ratios in history | Baseball Reference Blog
    Rob Deer hit 32 home runs in 1992, and only had 64 RBI.
