Jered Weaver has had a terrific 12-year career, with a 3.60 ERA (in over 2,000 innings pitches), a 35.0 WAR, and three All-Star Game appearances. But it’s been a long time since he’s been that Jered Weaver. Take a look at Weaver’s velocity per season since 2010, according to FanGraphs (note: I tweeted this in December): You don’t need a graph to demonstrate how that velocity...

San Diego Padres: Andy Green puts his players on notice

Despite being the youngest manager in baseball, San Diego Padres skipper Andy Green has revealed his leadership and shown a great deal of insight.

Hunter Renfroe on Producing on Both Sides of the Coin

They essentially had to build it out through free agency, but not even through the appealing parts of free agency. More like the Jered Weaver parts.
