Part of those plans was heavy breaking ball usage because that’s what the data told them was the best plan and it just so happened that what was left of their rotation had breaking balls.

The event, headlined by Myles Jury vs Mike De La Torre, got the lowest amount of viewers of a PPV prelim in 2017 thus far, averaging just 723,000 viewers (357,000 of them in the key 18-49 demographic), according to Sports TV Ratings .

There’s an old saying in NFL circles that if you’re not positioned in the Top 10 in every round, the phone is not going to ring on Draft day— either before or when you’re on the clock… That’s part of what makes picking from the #14 slot all the more problematic for Eagles personnel vice-president Howie Roseman in this particular draft. It also becomes more challenging for Howie knowing that he’s already traded 25 spots back into the 3rd round thanks to the Timmy Jernigan trade.

Every year at the end of the season I update Burning River Baseball’s top ten positional lists to reflect the most recent season’s statistics. While there isn’t a whole lot of movement year to year (given that there have been 116 seasons played before this one), the biggest jumper in 2016 may have been a controversial one as Cody Allen moved from #4 to #1 closer in Indians history.
