A Reader (Internetland): Wait, how does this work again?
Roundtable Administrator: We're glad you asked! Go ahead and submit a question using this interface and then visit the 2010 Playoffs Day One roundtable page sometime around 1:00 PM ET on October 6. The authors will be answering questions at that time, and may answer yours.
Mountainhawk (Salem, MA): @Brandon: Hi, Dr. Nick!
Roundtable Administrator: Ha. Always love the Simpson references. Hope you're in a comfortable chair and are enjoying this first taste of postseason action!
Ryan (Springfield, PA): Where does the Phillies "Big Three" rank in terms of the best top 3 pitchers in one rotation in the last two decades or so?
Roundtable Administrator: Towards the top, but slightly behind the 2005 Orioles C-Squared-L trio of Daniel Cabrera, Bruce Chen, and Rodrigo Lopez.
Mike Fast (firstname.lastname@example.org): Ben, I'm pretty sure PitchTrax attempts to draw the rulebook zone, which is a few inches narrower on the outside edge than what umpires typically call, particularly to LHB. Also, I don't remember whether they draw it (incorrectly) at the 17-inch width of home plate or whether they include the 1.5-inch radius of the baseball on either side, like they should, for a 20-inch rulebook zone.
Roundtable Administrator: Thanks, Mike. I guess we'll continue to see a bunch of called strikes from Lee that Pitch Trax says are outside the zone, then.
Paul (Boston): Do we have a PECOTA projection for the Reds game? Yanks?
Roundtable Administrator: Colin is working on it as we speak.
ShaqShoes (Southern Ontario): Hello from PSD. DO you think Roy Halladay will be a hall of famer?
Roundtable Administrator: This performance might have sealed it.
Roundtable Administrator: OK, thanks for all the questions. Hopefully we answered yours in tonight's roundtable. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more roundtables.
