Yet another reason why I subscribe to BP. This was some rather fascinating research and analysis.
I agree with RW Miller. Thank you for the quality journalism that I am happy to support with my subscription.
There's a mixing up of teams in the second graph of the Garcia posting:
And why not? The Padres (the Mariners?) may be moving in the fences at Safeco, but they can’t move out the marine layer. And even if they could, opposing hitters would still have the park’s out-making infield to contend with.
I've long believed the marine air and cool temperatures are more significant factors at Safeco than the fences.
Insightful, well-written pieces such as this define why I continue to enjoy supporting the journalism and work at BP. Thank you.
Fun read. Thank you for the update.
I heard DO chatting with Cliff Floyd on Sirius/XM recently, and it was difficult to say which way he was leaning.
The reference to Jim Johnson's multiple warm-ups in the Safeco bullpen was quite witty. Thanks for the chuckle.
Will someone please fix the smart quotes on this page?
Improper use of myriad as an adjective. It should read "myriad intersecting factors".
I wore my Mariners uniform in Omaha to witness Hultzen's first CWS start for Virginia, and he looked quite polished. And if the legend regarding his start vs. S. Carolina is true, you've gotta love his makeup.
My big fear is that Pimentel will merely be a re-enactment of Carlos Angel Peguero.
Thanks for the informed and well-written clarification.
Love the podcast. I have yet to list to 35.0, so perhaps you and Professor Parks addressed this with it, but was Carlos Martinez named someone else up until his signing?
I've read several references published in June of a "Carlos Matias" that would seem to match the signing bonus and heritage of Carlos Martinez.
For me, it's interesting to see how baseball executives continue to embrace the sabermetrics that those of us who play in simulation leagues have digested for years.
For example, I'm guessing very few Seattle Mariners fans, outside of those who play Strat-O-Matic, envisioned just how valuable Franklin Gutierrez would be as a "1" in center field. And I had to explain to some friends that Ryan Langerhans' skill in the outfield and willingness to take a walk are talents appreciated beyond the world of fantasy baseball.
Granted, had Yuni Betancourt not chopped down Endy Chavez in left field on June 19, there probably would not have been a need for Langerhans. I hope Chavez is able to make it back on the field for some club this spring.
Memo to Pedro Gomez:
Jay Bell? The Hall of Fame ballot is nothing to joke with. Your vote for Bell sullies your reputation. Perhaps you meant Cool Papa Bell, however he\'s been in since 1974.
And will someone tell me why Bert Blyleven continues to get overlooked? The guy tossed 60 shutouts during his career.
As a fan of the Cardinals, I would love to see John Mozeliak take a gamble on Cabrera and let Dr. Duncan provide him the prescription often turns into success in St. Louis.
I agree with \"Richie.\" Thanks for the fascinating snapshots of Norm Cash and John Hiller. The history lesson rewarded my reading of this thread.
