Lies, Damned Lies: Home-Field Advantages

0

Nate Silver

Which teams enjoy outsized advantages from playing at home?

Home-field advantage is making a little bit of a comeback this year, with the home team thus far having won 56.2 percent of major league baseball games. This is actually down a few ticks from where it was several weeks ago; at the beginning of June, home teams had won almost 58 percent of their games. Nevertheless, this is quite high by the standards of recent history. Prior to World War II (when travel was more burdensome and road trips much longer), home-field advantage was more profound in baseball, but since then it has been exceptionally stable, with the home team winning about 54 percent of games each season. So, is there something systematic that is causing the home-field numbers to increase this year? Or has it just been some kind of statistical fluke?

Starters coming off the DL hope to go back to their previous good work, a comet takes off from the Gap, and Manny being historical Manny.

Sitting down with the Pirates' new GM to talk about the philosophies hell bring with him from Cleveland, and his overall vision for Pittsburgh.

Neal Huntington has a challenge in front of him, but the 10-year veteran of the Indians front office has a plan in place to help resuscitate a moribund Pirates franchise that hasn't had a winning season since 1992--a plan that includes the utilization of performance analysis. Appointed as the team's new general manager in September, the 38-year-old native of Amherst, New Hampshire brings not only an extensive scouting and player development background to Pittsburgh, but also a deep understanding of sabermetrics.

Player Profile: Josh Fogg

Marc Normandin

What does the well-traveled veteran fourth starter have to offer in the game of his life?

After a few promising years in the minors and a trade from the Chicago White Sox, Josh Fogg found himself exiled in Pittsburgh for four seasons before his current team, the Rockies, signed him. Two years later, Fogg is starting the most relevant Rockies' contest since 1995, with a postseason berth on the line in today's one-game playoff.
