Verducci had a good article on the regression from the "workhorse" guys a few years ago. Pitchers like Halladay and Sabathia. They all break down, I hope the Dodgers think the team and Kershaw is special and this wont affect them.


Is this the Verducci Effect, or something different? The Verducci Effect has been pretty much debunked.

I think power pitchers do eventually slow down, but if they figure out how to switch up, they do okay. We'll see if Sabathia can. Halladay did.

It's not the Verducci effect. It was more the fall of the workhorses (guys who pitched over 200 innings for consecutive years)

found the article.

Looks like the Pirates won't have to worry about being the first team bounced from the LDS.

Eh, I would think a constitutional separation of power doesn't exactly match up well with a MLB playoff game. Pretty piss poor effort there Paul J. Kaplan.

http://deadspin.com/why-your-cardinals-suck-1443513646

The Cardinals are **** awful. They are Tim Tebow in baseball organization form. They are a church casserole made out of cream of mushroom soup and Minute Rice. They are a horrible family staring at a Norman Rockwell painting of itself. It's no coincidence that sabermetric punching bag David Eckstein spent a few years playing for the Cardinals, because no team in any sport puffs up its grittiness credentials quite like this one.

I don't trust any fanbase that brands itself as being the Best Fans In Baseball, nor do I trust any organization that has a Way named after it. I love the founder of Deadspin, Will Leitch. He's a good friend and usually a reasonable human being. But every **** October, he morphs into an eight-year-old wearing a propeller beanie and shooting marbles on the living room floor. GOLLY GEE GUYS ISN'T CARDINALS BASEBALL JUST THE BESTEST?!

Everyone tells me how healthy baseball is, but once again the last four teams left are all in the top 10 with payroll. Three of the four are in the top 5 (2nd 4th and 5th). As always, the more you spend, the more likely you are to make the playoffs. I sure would like to see some of these GMs in a cap situation.

It was nice to see Pittsburgh and Oakland make some noise with their low payrolls, but in the end, the big spenders are there.

As many teams from the bottom 5 made the playoffs as from the top 5. 2 of the 3 teams in the bottom 5 that lost went to 5 games, the other has been in the playoffs 3 of the last 5 years and appeared in the world series.

Making the playoffs and moving on is a big difference. I'm not positive, but I think the last team not in the top 10 to win the world Series was in 2003 when the Marlins won. It is guaranteed the winner this year will be a top 10 payroll team. That being said, this is a pretty good game tonight.

And yet in the LDS the team with the higher payroll beat the team with the lower payroll in all 4 series.
