ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Braves at Padres – 08/20/2002 The Braves lost 6-2, as they seem to most of the time the last week or so. Ron Gant — of all peoplle! — hit two home runs for the Padres, including a first-inning two-run homer that made it 3-0 and might as well … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
YACCS: Commenting made simple. Looks like YACCS is slow today. Oh, well, and YGWYPF and all that. Email is always appreciated if you can’t get in and have something to say.
August 20, 2002 – Greatest Living Pitcher: Running the Numbers to Settle the Argument And then running the numbers again and again to make sure the answer is neither “Greg Maddux” or “Warren Spahn”. Not that I’m charging bias, but there seems to be some sort of sabermetric imperative to prove that Clemens is/was greater … Continue reading “August 20, 2002 – Greatest”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Rockies at Braves – 08/19/2002 I was all ready for a tirade about how the Braves were dogging it with a big lead and a possible strike, that they were going to lose three in a row to a bad Rockies team that’s especially bad on the road. That … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
Glenn Hubbard Statistics – Baseball-Reference.com It’s not up yet, but I have sponsored Glenn’s page. I think you’ll appreciate the note when it appears. I’ll probably do a couple of others eventually, but for now I want to see what happens. Ten bucks for Biff Pocoroba?
Sponsorships: General Information – Baseball-Reference.com I’m going to buy me a text ad on Baseball Reference. It’s a good cause and could get me a few more hits. I love enlightened self-interest. Anyway, I am throwing it out to the readers: what player should I sponsor? Obviously it should be a Brave. And it can’t … Continue reading “Sponsorships: General Information – Baseball-Reference.com”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Rockies at Braves – 08/18/2002 Another bad game, 6-3 Rockies. It was 2-2 going to the middle innings, both pitchers (Maddux for the Braves, Jason Jennings for the Rockies) walking a tightrope. The Braves really should have broken the game open in the second, but a Jennings more or … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Rockies at Braves – 08/17/2002 Ugh. Jason Marquis, as I feared, didn’t have his best stuff, and gave up five first inning runs. Then it started raining, but that didn’t save the Braves, who eventually lost 10-3. There haven’t been many losses like that this year. Bobby and Leo … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
ESPN.com – MLB – Recap – Rockies at Braves – 08/16/2002 In case you missed it, Kevin Millwood is Back. He gave up a run in the first then pitched seven shutout innings. The Braves tied the game in the bottom of the inning, then got a run on a Furcal single in the fifth … Continue reading “ESPN.com – MLB – Recap”
SportingNews.com – Baseball : Atlanta’s postseason flops are not just slip-ups This story blames the Braves’ postseason “failures” (gosh, they have a winning record overall and in series) on the lack of a Closer™. Now, it’s not completely bogus. If the Braves had had someone like Mariano Rivera, they probably would have won in 1992 … Continue reading “SportingNews.com – Baseball : Atlanta’s”
