SaberSphere 7/24: RE24, Pedroia & A-Rod

How does RE24 evaluate the past couple MVPs? Is Dustin Pedroia's recent extension any different than recent franchise player deals? And finally, is A-Rod going to try to fight the MLB even after Braun conceded and accepted a suspension?

As the context-adjusted offensive metric (and Matt Hunter favorite) RE24 becomes more and more popular, how have recent MVPs performed in the statistic? Dustin Pedroia just signed a seven-year extension with the Red Sox that will likely keep him in Boston for his entire career. How is it different than other recent franchise player extensions? With Ryan Braun conceding and complying with a 65 game suspension, will Alex Rodriguez take a similar route?

  • The career of Nicolas Winding Refn by Amos Barshard | Grantland
    I'm a big Ryan Gosling fan. He was great in "Drive," exceptional in "Half Nelson" and good in "Ides of March" but it's clear that he has a great relationship with director Nicolas Winding Refn. Their most recent collaboration, "Only God Forgives," came out last week in limited theaters and video on demand. Sadly, I didn't really like it at all. Although it was extremely disjointed and confusing, at least it looked cool. Amos Barshard interviews Refn and tries to understand the enigmatic director.
