Fun read, not all that informative though. About what you'd expect from a manager.

Curious where Wakefield would rank...

I guess Carmine likes Ellsbury.

Did Bannister just call Greinke an arsehole?

Well, turns out that's not the article I was thinking about. The one (forgot who was the Arthur since it was not Fleming) dissect rather Utley was too conservative on stealing, if anyone remember where that was.

Above is very good point. There is an article on Bill James Onine by Dave Fleming "Utley's Perfect Season" address the exact situation. http://www.billjamesonline.net/ArticleContent.aspx?AID=1182 (subsciption only)

You mean Gerry Hunsicker, I'm assuming. Apparently no one here can ctr-c.

The answer to the marble question, of course is depends on how big is the urn. If the urn can hold more than 70 marbles (maximum black > 50), then choose 20/20 when want white makes sense. Otherwise the 20/n would offer better %.

And I always thought Francona was the manager of the Red Sox

Um... so you are suggesting the team to DL a player with no sign of any injury to avoid an option from vesting? Somehow I don't think the MLB and the Union would like that very much.

While Angel might or might not have Yankee's number, the problem is getting there.

Good analysis, but I think there is somewhat of a hole in there: you are category those by batters' action, not their intend. What if a hitter plan to swing at a 3-0 pitch, but saw it drifting out of zone or just to a spot where he is not comfortable swing at? Or more unlikely, a batter decided to take but saw a absolute meatball and changes his mind, which might or might not result in solid contact due to late start. If you could do this study by intend (which of course you cannot), I would not be surprised to see a "Green Light" would generate a better result than to take regardless. And I think that would offer more insight.

Gammons predicted 16 long balls during the Yankees-Phillies series. Well, we only had 12, so shame on him.

Basically anyone who hit into a triple play. But that's cheating I guess.

having seen Weiters play in person at GaTech, I know he is darn good... but if he lived up to THAT projection, it would be an epic rookie year

Rice is not the first player ever voted in on his 15th and final ballot.
