As we sit here on Valentine’s Day 2018, pitchers and catchers have reported and we are just a month and a half away from the start of the new season. The last time we saw any real MLB action was all the way back on November 1st. On that date, the Houston Astros won their […]
About Bobby Down
Bobby was born in Southern California in the Los Angeles area, and never wants to leave because other places are bad, especially where Kory has lived. Bobby loves baseball and the Dodgers more than just about anything. His favorite player of all-time is the best pitcher of this generation, Clayton Kershaw. If you slander Kershaw in any way, Bobby will know and will teleport into the discussion to smite you down with advanced statistics every which way. You can also catch Bobby arguing with Baseline Times’ very own Dustin Shires that all started with Tim Lincecum from years and years ago. Thanks, Dustin, this is all your fault. Bobby writes baseball articles of all kinds, though mostly filled with stats from Fangraphs. Check it out and see if you learn anything new!

The Rockies have signed Wade Davis to the biggest annual average value contract in MLB history for a reliever at $17.33M for 3 years and $52M overall. With the way that reliever salaries have been skyrocketing, is it worth it to sign a big-money reliever? How many have been worth it?
Clayton Kershaw has 8 postseason starts beyond 6 IP since 2013. In the first 6 IP of those starts, he has a 1.69 ERA. After? Over a 28.00 ERA in 5.1 IP.
The Astros are an offensive powerhouse led by MVP candidate Jose Altuve. Can Aaron Judge turn his playoff slump around to lead another Yankees upset?
The last month of the season had people thinking the Dbacks could take the Dodgers down, but the momentum didn’t mean a thing in the Dodgers 3-0 sweep.
The Diamondbacks and Dodgers have some bad blood in recent history. This series is unlikely to be a quick one, expect it to go 5 long games.
The Red Sox and Astros ALDS will not be easy for the Red Sox. They are going to have to rely on Sale and Kimbrel if they want to make it to the next round.
2017 ended Kershaw’s 4-year run as the MLB’s fWAR pitching leader. No starting pitcher has led in four straight years since Steve Carlton from 1980-1983.
Scherzer and Kershaw have been the NL Cy Young favorites all season, but Strasburg, Greinke, and Nelson are right on their heels.
In the month of August, the Twins went 20-10, Giancarlo Stanton tied the August home run record with 18 and Corey Kluber had a sub 2.00 ERA and 54 Ks.
