It is a joke that you say that Sale was babied by the White Sox. You and most of the media got suckered by their claim that, like Strasbourg, they were taking care of him. He averaged almost 104 pitches per start, which is pretty damn high for a 22 year old. The "signs of fatigue toward the end of the season" were that his ERA essentially doubled post all star break and the periperhal stats were in line with that too.

Your personal park factors for Yankee stadium are because it is a great home run park for lefties. BP needs to get a lot more sophisticated about park factors. They are irrelevant for advancing Aybar over Jeter in a silver slugger argument.

"Sonanstine amazingly coming through with an RBI double" wasn't amazing. He can hit. Coming in to this season he was a career .400 hitter with a career .500 OBP(4 for 10 with 2 walks). The amazing thing was that they were lucky enough to commit such a blunder on a night when he was pitching.

The US is no longer on daylight savings times so your columns should be PST, not PDT.
