No Pepper

Against the Fence

by Tommy Bennett

David Gassko on Brad Lidge's pitch selection and game theory.
He includes in-depth empirical data. It is thorough and interesting throughout.

Are HBPs less common in World Cup years
They have been 3.5% less common in WC years since 1960, says Plunk Everyone. The rate falls an additional 2.4% on days matches are actually played.

Geoff Young remembers Ken Griffey, Jr.
I'm a sucker for a Walt Whitman quote; if it's well chosen then it's all the better.

When it comes to Rich Harden, nobody knows anything.
Or so says Baseball Time in Arlington's Joey Matschulat.
