SaberSphere 4/10: Strasburg, Axford and Dominican Baseball Academies

Tom Lynn

John Axford is a mess to start the season. Is there something that needs to be fixed or is he mainly experiencing some serious bad luck? Is Hyun-Jin Ryu the real deal and what do batters have to do to beat Yu Darvish this year? All this and more in Wednesday's SaberSphere.

The first week of the season is in the books and there's plenty of baseball to be written about. Jered Weaver broke his left elbow and may be out for four to six weeks, putting even more pressure on the Angels' offense. Did you know Stephen Strasburg has yet to pitch in the eighth inning yet? Take a look at some of these noteworthy articles from around the SaberSphere.

  • Previewing Coachella by Steven Hyden | Grantland
    This weekend is one of my favorite times of the year, Coachella. Last year was an incredible experience but I'm extremely excited about this upcoming lineup. I never thought Blur would be getting back together to play a show here in the US. Steven Hyden actually believes the lineups for these music festivals are becoming more and more interchangeable. The only difference between Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Coachella anymore seems to be their setting.
