Managers can still get their money’s worth arguing balls and strikes with the man behind the plate, though those tirades often end in vain, if not with a little entertainment for the fans watching...

The Jay Bruce Defensive Metrics Test

Jay Bruce is going to be traded. That’s a near-certainty. He’s the only player on this year’s market to be (almost) traded not once, but twice by the team for which he still plays. The rumors have been persisting for more than a year now. Bruce is in the last guaranteed year of his contract, the Reds were never in contention, and he’s rebuilt his value with a great first...
