More Hitter/Pitcher Split Talk at Fangraphs

Eno Sarris took a twittersation I had with Chris Liss, Steve Gardner, Jeff Erickson and Mike Gianella, following my appearance on the radio with Chris and Jeff earlier day, and turned it into more talk about these valuation issues.

You can read my fully expressed take at And I’ll be writing more about some ancillary issues in the coming days at that site.


Information Please!

I picked up on a Tweet from an MLB character tonight who says that the White Sox will DFA Wilson Betamit tomorrow and promote Gordon Beckham.

I’m not opposed to this. I’ve been carrying Betamit in the American Dream League, and I recently traded for Beckham, who will certainly play if promoted.

But I’m posting this here because it seems dubious to me that this chain of events will actually happen.

I’m hoping they do, but how reliable is this Tweet? I have no idea at all.

And, if it is, does that mean that future Tweets are more reliable? Or just another indication that information on the internet isn’t always reliable?

Which is why I’m going to bed.
