As has been alluded to in earlier comments in this thread, the author is so breathlessly smitten with MLB.tv on various platforms that he is either oblivious to or willfully ignoring the huge-ass elephant in the room: MLB's blackout situation. Is the author an employee of Major League Baseball or something? That would be the only justification for his avoiding the issue. Otherwise, it's bad sports journalism, although it was an exciting sales pitch.
How about showing us the complete league standings?
Isn't it more relevant to consider this move in light of the changes in win expectancy, rather than in terms of expected runs or even the chances of scoring at least one run?
According to WalkOffBalk.com, the chances of the home team winning up two runs in the seventh with a base-out state of 12-/0 -- that is, the state in which Jeter stepped to the plate -- is 94.7%. Had the bunt been successfully executed, the base-out state would have changed to -23/1 and win expectancy would have inched up to 95.3%. Instead, the failed bunt, leaving a base-out state of 12-/1, dropped win expectancy to 93.5%.
In any case, the changes in win expectancy, regardless of the outcome, are so ridiculously low that it amounts to little more than a form of self-gratification. Of course, the overall upside for Jeter is solidifying his canonization as the Patron Saint Of The Right Way To Play The Game, which I would tend to believe is no small consideration for Derek Jeter.
Coffee breaks? What, is it 1956 already? ;)
I think it would be better to send the email earlier, say 700am Eastern, so people who can do so can check it when they get in to their job. The news will be the same 99% of the time, and it will still be there for those who still have "coffee breaks".
Detroit has Buddy\'s Pizza. It is the quintessential square deep-dish pizza, with chewy crust and excellent sauce and toppings. You have GOT to stop there when you pass through town for one of your pizza feeds (if you still have them?)

You can download CSVs of the sortable stats, and if you can export them to Excel and create a pivot table out of it, you will get your wish.
