MONDAY The Cubs Are the Best Base-Running Team, Too, by August Fagerstrom It’s going to be pretty disappointing when the Cubs find a way to blow it again, since they’re actually really good this time. Estimated TV Revenues for All 30 MLB Teams, by Craig Edwards We can never know for sure, of course, but Craig puts in the work to get us a baseline. Also, should baseball be played in Florida outside of March? Drew Smyly Is a Strikeout Machine, by Jeff Sullivan It’s not as good as being a sex machine, but you should never let good be the enemy of great. TUESDAY Staten Island Yankees Sabermetric Day Event on June 19th, by Carson Cistulli Join us! Corey Dickerson on Hitting: Goodbye Coors, Hello Trop, by David Laurila Dickerson makes a pretty good case for the AL East being a better hitting environment overall than the NL West. What Pitchers (and Numbers) Say About Pitching in the Cold, by Eno Sarris Like many of us, Eno piggybacks off some research from Jeff Zimmerman. Fun with Triple Plays of the Past, Present and Future, by August Fagerstrom WEDNESDAY Tipping Pitches: Cutting Bait on Three Top-60 Arms, by Paul Sporer A clear anti-Yankees bias and a Simpsons video clip — it’s like this article was speaking to me!

THURSDAY DFS Stacking: A Data-Driven Approach, by Matt Hunter Using science for fantasy glory. FRIDAY The Unfathomable Reality of a (Temporarily) Awful Joey Votto, by Owen Watson Last year at this time, there was a lot of hand wringing about Joey Votto, but then he went out and had perhaps the best season of his career. Was the hand wringing simply a year early? Owen investigates. The Fringe Five: Baseball’s Most Compelling Fringe Prospects, by Carson Cistulli The Fringe Five actually returned last week, but I didn’t notice it. So I’m pretending it came back this week! Welcome back, Fringe Five! Looking forward to finding out who the next Mookie Betts is. How Your Biggest Strength Could Be Hurting You, by Tanner Bell Tanner goes all Inception on us, and to great effect. Let’s Build a Rotation, by Joe Douglas You’re relying on some unknowns here, but this rotation would keep you competitive if all the pitchers in it stay healthy. The Doug Mirabelli Trade: An Oral History, by Tim Healey For this fantastic piece, Tim spoke to three GMs, three players a traveling secretary and the state police. The absolute must read of the week.
