    A few years back when Lester's form dipped ('11 and '12) a bit, there was a lot written on BDC about Lester not being an ace. From 2007 to now he has been the 8th best pitcher in MLB.   2008 to now: 7 more »

    Going forward Ells is getting paid like the .230 ISO guy he was in 2011.  Problem is his '14 ISO of .115 is probably not unexpected.  He only has four "full" seasons ISO: '08  114     '09  114    '11 more »

    Ben rolled the dice with Victorino considering he has been inconsistent (just ok in '10 and '12) and his age.  It worked last year over the 122 games he played.  This year and next may look ugly, but more »

    SV was considered by many to be a terrible FA signing because he had been up and down.  Then he went out and played great in 2013.  Looking at his numbers he has been up and down over the last half of more »
