On last issue…

I think the new ball was awesome and our pitchers really like it. I do think it is carrying more off the bat, but I also think it allows the pitcher to get a little more on the ball and get more sink on the ball. We didn’t really change much or make many adjustments, and I think with the new ball we will see more doubles and home runs than previous years, and possibly even more velo from pitchers.

Great article on Brandon Finnegan. Not sure if there’s ever been a better year team-wise for a player in quite some time. Go Royals!

Just wanted to send a note to commend you guys for a job well done. As a baseball enthusiast it is great to get such an in-depth look at the inner workings of baseball on many different levels. Keep up the good work.
