We might be seriously overlooking Scott Schebler

Was that the quietest 30 dinger season in Reds history? When you think about the current iteration of the Cincinnati Reds, you think of Joey Votto.

Updating the Top 100: Billy Hamilton

Billy Hamilton’s place on the all-time list Through the sheer volume of data that exists in baseball, we get these weird trend lines sometimes that don’t really mean anything on their own but just sit there as curiosities to be head-scratched over. As an example: Billy Hamilton has played four seasons of more-or-less full time baseball, and has amassed a tidy trend of stolen base totals: 56 in 2014, then 57, then 58, and now 59 this season. He finished 2nd in the NL in this category each of the four seasons. Does that mean anything? We could probably deduce that Hamilton is fast,...
