Baseball Stuff

The Mets got themselves back up to .500 (4-4) last night, though there’s some question as to whether or not Reyes actually scored. Either way, the run counts.

Here’s an interesting post on why there are more 20-game winners than there are 19-game winners. Surprising, and probably mostly just random luck. Still interesting.

Well, interesting unless you’re Joe Armstrong, I suppose. No need to click through that link. Just read the annotated version over at Fire Joe Morgan. Ken Tremendous is a genius.

There’s another interesting post up at Baseball Toaster about the Tigers’ awful start to the season. They’re certainly a better team than the start of the season shows, but they have some work ahead of them to catch up and make the playoffs. Still, if the Mets can blow a 7 game lead in September, the Tigers can come back from a 7 game deficit in April. Anyway, the post is here, about teams that have made the playoffs in seasons they’ve had 7-game losing streaks. None of them were to start the season, but when it happens really doesn’t matter too much.

Sports Authority has a 25% off any single item coupon. It’s not good on a lot of name brands, but it does work for authentic MLB jerseys. My Santana jersey is finally on the way.

Another great post at FJM, by Junior. I guess I shouldn’t link every single post there. If you’re a baseball fan VORPie, you should just subscribe to the feed yourself.

Why aren’t there afternoon games every day, dammit? I need at least one game to follow while I’m sitting here at work…
