The Platoon Advantage: TwinsFest Cognitive Dissonance

7

Bill Parker

Beginning an ongoing series of weekly contributions from the authors of The Platoon Advantage. This week: Fanalysts.

BP welcomes the authors of The Platoon Advantage, a general baseball blog that covers history, stats, and current events with passion and irreverence, and revels in the random minutia that makes the game we love so special.

I’ve always been entertained by the usual line of attack traditionalists take against the sabermetrically-minded, specifically the “get your head out of your spreadsheets and watch the games!” line. Because if there’s one thing I know to be absolutely true about everyone who might be shepherded under the sabermetrics-friendly umbrella, it’s this: we all love the game of baseball. We love it in very different ways, but we nonetheless love it, and we love watching it. There is no one whose one true love and calling is biochemistry or software design, but who does sabermetric research instead because he or she just can’t pass up all that sweet, sweet sabermetrics money. We get into the numbers because we love the game. The numbers don’t replace our love of the game, they enhance it. But you know that.

Join Kevin Goldstein and Steven Goldman every Sunday on BP's new SiriusXM show!

In partnership with SiriusXM, Baseball Prospectus is pleased to announce that on Sunday, July 17, we will begin a new radio show, MLB Roundtrip with Baseball Prospectus, co-hosted by BP’s Kevin Goldstein and Steven Goldman with Sirius XM veteran Mike Ferrin. Appearing every Sunday on SiriusXM’s MLB Network Radio channel at 11 PM eastern, the program will feature three hours of the quirky and original analysis, insight, and humor for which BP has become known since its founding in 1996.

“Everyone at Baseball Prospectus is excited to be involved with MLB Network Radio,” said co-host Goldstein. “With both Mike and Steven on board, the amount of wit and baseball intelligence in the room is staggering and we look forward to entertaining, informing, and interacting with our fans and listeners.”

The Futures Game allows fans the chance to dream of the best up-and-coming prospects, but it's also a time when a scout can picture his own future.

I’ve been in Arizona for a week, and my eyes have been privileged enough to witness a remarkable amount of questionable baseball; sometimes calling it baseball is too generous, as the refinement level of the talent often leaves a lot to be desired. Of course, I will continue to refer to the experience as a privilege because, let’s face it, being at the back fields of a complex league park is better (for me) than being in a cubicle watching the countdown to closing time, and most people aren’t fortunate enough to get to participate in their passion on a daily basis. This is going somewhere, I promise.

My days have been spent standing in triple-digit heat, starting with the afternoon workouts, where the sun rains showers of pure hell, and concluding in the evening, when I find myself standing behind a back-field fence for three-plus hours at a clip, saved from the intense vengeance of the sun, but still subject to the oven-like temperatures that pack a punch deep into the night. By the time I return to my hotel, I feel like a slice of leftover pizza, something edible that was once fresh but gets exposed to the elements and reheated to the point that it loses its molecular identity, transforming the overall appeal from appetizing to agonizing. I’m inedible by the time July 10 rolls around. Arizona failed to offer the necessary chill to keep my structure established, and my texture isn’t pleasant to the senses.

Changing Speeds: Forty-two Things I Think, Part 1

36

Ken Funck

Ken brings the Funck with the first 21 of his 42 personal tenets of the game.

I have engaged in baseball conversations with a greater number of people in the past year since becoming a contributor to Baseball Prospectus than in the previous five years combined. Casual acquaintances, or good friends who aren’t particularly baseball zealots, have been interested in hearing what I write about, and how it might differ from what they read in the local paper or see on ESPN. Mostly these conversations are exceedingly pleasant, since like most people I like to talk about myself, and I can spend time pretending to be an “expert” with a willing audience to discuss concepts that many people have never really heard about or considered.

The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe.

A conversation with the voice of the Rangers about baseball in Texas, using stats in broadcasting, and answering the question, WWVSD?

Eric Nadel is a baseball-broadcasting legend in Texas. The radio voice of the Rangers is now in his 32nd year calling games in Arlington, making him the longest-tenured announcer in franchise history. A five-time winner of the state’s Broadcaster of the Year award, the 59-year-old Nadel is a member of the Texas Baseball Hall of Fame.

The shape of things to come from Baseball Prospectus and BaseballProspectus.com

First off, I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season. As it turned out, 2009 was a successful year for Prospectus Entertainment Ventures, but this coming year has the potential to be the biggest for us since the year we went to a premium product, and I'd like to share with you all some of the things we are working on. For our readers and subscribers, Baseball Prospectus means two things; great content, and leading-edge statistical work. I'd like to talk about some exciting developments on both fronts that push us even further forward in 2010.
