Sam comments that half of the Baseball Prospectus staff had not heard of the song Gangnam Style.

Notes Edit

  • Alex Anthopoulos has been in Toronto for three years. Is it fair to judge him for a lack of success at the major league level?
  • Lack of a surefire pitching ace does not necessarily have negative implications for playoff success.
  • What, besides regular season performance, can lead to greater postseason success?
