Odds that one of Cueto, Wainwright, Felix, Tanaka, Buehrle will win Cy Young in 2014?

Tom Tango | The BookDetails

That’s my question.  Is it at 50/50?  More?  Less? We’re about sixty games in so far.  If an aspiring saberist wants to tackle this, go to Pinto’s site, take the top 2 Cy contenders in each league for the last five years (2009-13), which is 10 Cy Youngs, plus the best 5th guy​ (either...

How fast does Mark Buehrle pitch?

Tom Tango | The BookDetails

In one of the comments here, the reader notes that in Mark Buehrle games, the game time is 2:37.  That’s 157 minutes.  But, that’s based on Buehrle pitching one-third of the time, his bullpen pitching one-sixth, and his opponents pitching one-half.  In non-Buehrle games, let’s say the average game time is 180...

Clayton Richard v RA Dickey

Tom Tango | The BookDetails

​Back when I was teaching my online class, this very subject was discussed, with exactly the same names at the top and bottom.  I’m always fascinated by pitchers-as-batters, and this particular angle is fun to look into. ...

Blast from the Past: J.A. Happ

Tom Tango | The BookDetails

For some reason, this old chat, which presumably was from 2009, appeared in my reader: Rodney (VA) It’s a given you have a vendetta against the Phillies but could it be possible that J.A Happ just knows how to pitch? Numbers don’t tell everything. If numbers did the Dodgers would have beat the Phillies in the NLCS last year….like you...

MLB gay pride nights

Tom Tango | The BookDetails

The Mariners will celebrate by flying the Gay Pride Flag.  I of course love it that Seattle is front-and-center here. Now, they are apparently the first to do such a thing, except that MLB also encompasses Canada, which means Toronto, who announced in 2006: On Friday August 25, 2006 the Toronto Blue Jays will be celebrating our third annual Pride...

Dickey’s Convocation Address

Tom Tango | The BookDetails

In Toronto, ending with: We all have a personal narrative. That’s the one thing that makes this life so awesome: that we all have our own narrative. I have mine, you have yours, but at the end of the day we’re all connected in some way. . . . Making a difference in the lives of others is being able...

When to stop play?

Tom Tango | The BookDetails

This Jays blogger points out a rule that the umpires could have called following Happ’s hit: (c) When an accident incapacitates a player or an umpire; I’m reminded of a play with Moises Alou, where he rounded first, and his bone cracked, and it protruded out of his leg.  It was terrible to look at.  Alou is lying there about...
