BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

Hot Child in the city, Hot child in the city, running wild and looking pretty

Not much from me today between running around doing errands and it being so damn hot, lots of perspiration not much inspiration today.

Loved what I saw from Johan Santana last night. I guess he got tired of of all the “what’s wrong with Santana” from the fans and media. It’s not just that he told Jerry Manuel to go sit down but he pitched a complete game shutout against a Reds team that is the best hitting team in the league.

Great post by Eric Simon on Amazin Avenue today on the educating fans on how to read saber stats and understand what the numbers tell us.  Gary Cohen got the ball rolling on this with his take on BAPIP during this past weekends telecast. Simon picked up on this and by explaining what the number tell us will hopefully convert the non-sabermetic believers .  I have to admit the one class I cut out of regularly during high school years  was math. I hate math and sometimes when I read the sabermetric sites, the charts and graphs lose me, just tell me what time it is I couldn’t give a shit how the clock was made and it seems Eric Simon is going to help me out and tell me the time of day.

  1. Very irritating loss. How does genious Jerry justify sending up two singles hitters with first and second in the ninth? The game was lost with Barajas and Frenchy having their fingers up their asses in the dugout. You have to take a shot at an extra base hit in that spot. That was the game, right there. Add to it that Barajas won a game in Cincy off Cordero with a ninth inning HR. Why ask for two hits when you have guys who can tie it with one?

    They are in the race while overcoming Jerry-ball. Imagine if they did not have to play with their worst enemy in the same uniform.
