I believe you mean Tom Grieve, who is of course the father of Ben.

It's a bad idea (okay, it's not bad, but not great either) because you're still either punishing or rewarding teams for the outcome of a game that is largely out of their control. Personally, I'd rather they just admitted that it was an exhibition and not try to make it more than it is.

There must be some mistake. I don't see "Batting Average" in the Archaic section.

I'm confused. Is Yamauchi the 11th or 40th richest person in Japan?

You're right that neither Rizzo nor Johnson has come out and said that they're putting a hard cap of 160 innings on Strasburg, but then there's this: https://twitter.com/#!/kerzelpete/status/171674418400071681 Rizzo, last September: "If we're lucky enough and improved enough to be playing meaningful games in September and [Strasburg's] pitch limits are up, just like Jordan Zimmermann this year, he will be done. We'll sit with our plan and we'll stick to it. If I'm the general manager here at that time, we'll certainly put the pitch and innings limit on him and we'll probably have our internal discussions and arguments, but at the end of the day just like Jordan Zimmermann this year, we're going to stay true to the plan and we'll have to find ways to replace him in our rotation." (http://siriusxmsports.posterous.com/mike-rizzo-nationals-gm-discussed-the-return) So again, maybe not a hard cap of 160, but the organization seems committed to making sure Strasburg isn't overworked.

Thank you for this. Another fantastic job, and another reason I'm glad I took the plunge and subscribed.

Oh, I see. When I did Randy Brown's Text to Column fix I accidentally deleted that column. Whoops!

This is my first year messing with PECOTA, so maybe I'm missing something obvious...is there no way to sort by position?

Interesting that this episode went up against a World Series game. You would think they would have wanted to grab as many baseball fans as possible.

Are you at all concerned about Ryan Hanigan eating into Mesoraco's playing time?
