Sitting in my seat tonight at the Mets Angels game, I began to hear a familiar voice. To my surprise I was able to meet the greatest Mets fan and purveyor of the truth, Frank Fleming. Fans of he Mets and residents of NJ we thank you Frank. Let’s go Mets! Continue reading “CapFigure ft. Mets Legend Frank Fleming”
The Yankees Steakhouse “NYY STEAK” is not alone now. The Mets have responded. Aaaaaaand it’s a pathetic joke: Continue reading “THE METS ANSWER FOR NEW YORK YANKEES STEAKHOUSE”
God I can’t wait until Bryce Harper mans left-field in Pinstripes in 2019.
Manny Machado better bring up that .220 batting average if he expects to be our third baseman of the future, we got this guy named Gleyber Torres whose about to make every clown in the city chant “Gley-buhhh”…clap clap…”Gley-buhhh”! That’s right, he’s only 20 years old and won MVP of the Arizona Fall League. Epstein may have broken two curses but Brian Cashman is the don of deal-makers among MLB GMs.
What happens to Jacoby Ellsbury and his $25 million per year, when carrottop Clint Frazier starts raking in Scranton. Oh wait, we’ll just salary dump him to Houston because they take the Brian McCann’s of the world off our hands…especially when the Baby Bombers come up.
Until then we’ll let the rest of the AL East play with some semblance of hope.
I love the expression “If I were a gambling man…”, I use it all the time. With it, you get to simultaneously feel out the odds for any prediction whatsoever, and nobody thinks your a total degenerate for mentioning gambling at a funeral. I once managed to successfully escalate an “innocent” prediction on the race and gender of the next person to pass by on the street into myself and 3 co-workers screaming “Oooh! Asian MAN!” With cash in hand. I lost all I had on me that night (Like $12), but my point is this expression and the idea of betting on anything is a dream for a total degenerate like myself.

In this episode of CapFigure Podcast, we explore everything related to trade value. What are the factors that make a player more valuable than his peers? What is the difference between a player’s value in fantasy baseball and his value to his MLB organization?
When should you trade one elite player for two above-average players? (Spoiler Alert: Under no circumstances should anyone ever trade Joey Votto for Eric Hosmer & Trevor Cahill)
Which players would go in the first round if there were a draft of all current MLB players? Kris Bryant, Nolan Arenado, Bryce Harper, Clayton Kershaw or Mike Trout?
To what extent does a player’s position factor into his trade value? Why is Gary Sanchez the crown jewel of trade value?
All these questions and more, if you call yourself a baseball fan you won’t want to miss a thing! Continue reading ““Trade Value: Fantasy, Reality & Delusion” from CapFigure Podcast (Episode 51)”
I only last week had the life changing realization that I have become “Angry People on Twitter” @horriblestats I deleted a bunch of angry tweets but my feed still has sparkles of hate throughout. What caught my attention was that 10 of my 10 most recent tweets were Literally All not-that-nice tweets to the MTA about the MTA (The organization that runs public transit in New York).
I now understand the spewing septic tank of venom that is Twitter. Today it is possible to instantly get your haterade, unfiltered and somewhat anonymous, to the hateree. “Twitter is revolutionary?! Well golly gee we had no idea! Thanks Ryan!”
The point is that this isn’t that. This isn’t twitter hate. This runs deeper than twitter hate. I’ve had a full 24 hours to think about and discuss this Mouth Breather. From laughing with my boss, to fear that Baseball-Trade-Mutt-Dumbass-Disorder might be an unknown STD you get from simply trying to Fuck People. Buy your asian mask things now you guys. BTMDD is serious.
So here is how you can get everyone in your league to hate you. Act like this kid:
In this episode of CapFigure Podcast, we examine the disappointing performance of the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers, thus far in the 2017 MLB season.
The Kansas City Royals seemed poised for a dynasty run following their World Series Championship in 2015. With a young core of players and an invigorated fan base, the future seemed so promising. Now one month into 2017, the Royals’ championship window is seemingly closed and the question must be asked…is it time to sell?
Despite the return of Yu Darvish and the emergence of Joey Gallo, the Texas Rangers have been riddled by injuries to future Hall of Famer Adrian Beltre and Cole Hamels. No one could have predicted that the Rangers’ offense would rank near the bottom of every offensive category. Will the Rangers continue their sluggish start, or will they emerge as a World Series contender?
All these questions and more, if you call yourself a baseball fan you won’t want to miss a thing! Continue reading ““Royal Blues, Rangers in Danger?” from CapFigure Podcast (Episode 50)”
