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...

Chass gives is the history of salary reporting.  He notes that Ron Blum is the information gatherer, and everyone relies on him.  Cot’s, he says, relies on Ron as well.  And there seems to be an issue with Wells’ signing bonus:In response to my question, Blum said in an e-mail, “He counts$3,187,500 for Blue Jays this year ($25.5 million signing...

Deconstructing RA Dickey

Tom Tango | The BookDetails

Alan continues his fascinating look at RA Dickey, this time, by positing the effect of a ball being thrown with 1.5 revolution, compared to 1 revolution, and he says: The two curves fall right on top of each other from release to about 40 ft from home plate, but thereafter they deviate strongly. Indeed, the red curve ends up on the...
