Trevor Bauer turns to technology for offseason improvement

From the gutter to the advanced baseball metrics analysis facility

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

I was driving yesterday and pulled up behind a guy with a Yankees license plate frame. In Vancouver, BC. But that's not the worst part. The worst part was the vanity plate which read, simply: "JETER." I pulled over to the side of the road to vomit, then gathered myself together so I could get back home and put together these news & notes.

Indians news & notes

Bauer goes high-tech with offseason regimen | - Trevor Bauer is an obsessive student of baseball, just in case you didn't know. This offseason, he's taken it to another level, spending hours at the Driveline Basbeball facility analyzing slo-mo video of Corey Kluber, Danny Salazar, and other MLB starters. Klubot is a great joke-y nickname, but Bauer may legitimately think in 1's and 0's.

Will Prog upgrades curtail home opener? | - Hoynsie steps up his game, including a slideshow of the construction and providing some actual, interesting information about how the renovations may affect the wind patterns. He also shuts down an idiot whining about the Indians not making enough moves. A solid effot from ol' Paul.

Centralized spending | Burning River Baseball - The past several year have been a free agent arms race between the AL West and AL East while the AL Central, except for the Tigers, sat on the sidelines. This offseason, though, has seen the rest of the ALC get in on the fun.
