This NY Times story, an excerpt from a book, goes a little ways into how performance might be shaped by data. Definitely worth reading.

That said, it raises a bigger question. To what extent do we love the mystery, and to what extent do we mourn its loss? 

This is a spectator question. At what point does the game become irrelevant? Not now, but we're getting closer.

Casey Mize is going to be the first pick in June, as Baseball America sees it right now.

Let's see how many of their first ten picks are in fact in the top ten.

I'd never heard of a "batter's eye" before today.

Also, there is an MILB.TV that you can subscribe to for $50/year.

Minor league games start tonight.  I know there has been word that "such and such" (Musgrave for instance) pitched in a minor league game.  These were exhibitions between teams and colleges or teams and other minor league clubs from the same organzation or even split squad games. 

Real minor league games start today which means you can also look up accurate rosters on MILB for the AAA NL squads and see if your favorite minor leaguer made it to AAA or got kicked back down to AA.

I see them when I launch my MLB At Bat app. I had to search for them but they are all there.

What's happened to the condensed games at MLB.TV? Are they not being offered this year?

They were my way of eliminating mound visits and fiddling with the batting gloves.

One of the annoyances where baseball teams are focused on, like, real life instead of the paranoia of fantasy baseball players is that even though a bunch of these players are 800% likely to go on the DL, they aren't on the DL right now.

Realmoto -- NOT on the DL.  Announced to be on the DL on opening day, sure, but that doesn't help me replace him in my Yahoo league now does it.
