No Pepper

Against the Fence

by Tommy Bennett

Is the new-look Jeff Francouer demanding that pitchers pound the strike zone?
Sam Page finds some interesting tidbits, including that Francoeur only walked after an 0-2 count once in four years in Atlanta (he's done it once this year, too).

Larry Granillo flexes his infographic muscles to illustrate the great broadcasters.
Really drives home the impressive longevity of Harry Caray and Vin Scully. One of my biggest worries about baseball today is that there aren't many great young play-by-play guys. Am I wrong?

Here are 10 reasons why Bob Uecker is better than most announcers.
His appearance on the Johnny Carson show (at the link) is plain old excellent television.

Seamheads asks how good Albert Pujols is.
Would you believe he is already a top-20 position player of all time? Albert Pujols is 30 years old.

Has the Mexecutioner been used in the highest leverage situations?
Jeff Zimmerman answers in the negative, and provides a nifty way to visualize it. Steve Sommer and Bill Baer have done similar charts as well.

Tim Marchman wonders if George Will is a fellow traveler.
Men At Work
may have been the first baseball book I really loved.
