Cycling for the cycle

Posted 04-21-2009 at 12:47 PM by Lundind1

It is interesting that in the first 2 weeks of the season we have seen the numbers coming in that we have, at least in terms of players hitting for the cycle. And by that I mean 3 is an interesting number so early in a season, or ever for that matter.

For those of you who don't know what a cycle is (I hope that you do) it is a single, double, triple, and home run in the same game. A natural is when you do it in just that order. There have been exactly 14 natural cycles in MLB to date,...

Greatest White Sox team of All Time

I am at work and bored silly. I don't do much, but that doesn't mean I will do this all day. I just want to post a few thoughts.

I was reading a book on Yankee myths, legends and such. The dude who wrote it compared the teams considered the 3 greatest in team history-1927, 1961 and 1998 to determine which one was the best of the bunch. He used a bunch of statistics that I don't recall right now, but his conclusion was that it was a toss up. All three dominated in one category or other...

I've enjoyed watching the MLB network since it went live this year. Its combination of actual insight, current news, and nostalgia works well. My worry is that they have 24 hours to fill. That's a real worry.

I remember clearly when ESPN first went live. It was only on part of the day and had some amateurish sports recap show and a lot of low-rent sporting events like Australian-rules football, polo, and badminton. But it got better, smoother, and gradually attracted higher-profile...

Pitch counter crapped out

Posted 04-18-2009 at 06:55 PM by Lundind1

Well my pitch counter crapped out on me, I think that it was from overuse. There is something to be said by watching the pitch counts during games. I have a rule for major leaguers as to how many pitches I would like to see thrown. Here is what I can usually gather from the number of pitches per inning.

<9. Extremely efficient and probably in line to carry no hits or one hit for prolonged periods of a game. Pitcher is getting all his pitches over and is extremely deceptive....
