#43439 The real tragic part about Soriano

Posted by TWC on 25 April 2013 - 09:24 AM

I realize I am preaching to the choir when I say Soriano is the king of the insignificant home run, and is an easy K in a clutch situation. 


Which choir is that?


As far as Soriano being a bad player.  ...  Right now he is hitting a hefty .286 in 77 AB's.  He has 1 HR and 2 RBI's.  With runners on base he is hitting .207 and striking out 25% of the time and has 1 RBI.  He is not feared and is an easy strike out.  With 2 outs and runners in scoring position he is hitting .154 and K's 33% of the time. I got those stats off of the ESPN website.  At one time last year he had something like 15 home runs and 25 RBI's.  He is the king of the one run home club. 


You might want to read up on RBIs and how much the depend on everyone else on the team, not the batter.  If people don't get on base ahead of you, you're not gonna get RBIs.  Period.


And seriously, bringing up three weeks worth of stats to define Soriano as a "bad player"?  Positively absurd.  Read up on statistics a bit.  Learn what "sample sizes" are.  Go buy The Book.  I'm thrilled that you're able to find stats at ESPN.com.  Go to fangraphs to learn what they mean.


Plus last year: Runners on base =.300/.369/595 17 HR

                       Scoring position 2 out = .254/405/463 3 HR

Also was 10th in the league in 2 out RBI with 40 (10 behind Cabrera)


Im all on the "trade Soriano train" but any talk of him being a bad player is irrational. Calling out a player for his lack of RBI's when he had 100+ is ridiculous (even though RBI's have more to do with the guys in front of him and not his offensive skill but thats another discussion).

He plays up the "i'm not really interested" bit because he knows the Wife is reading.

Shrug. I think Cobie looks hot as hell in that picture.



That's not Bieber?

#42779 Message Board "upgrade"

Posted by TWC on 22 April 2013 - 03:02 PM

Hey, Ace, was it last week or so when the software behind the MB got refreshed?


The look of the quoted replies changed a bit, which was a bit confusing at first, but I think may now be a little clearer.


What I'm not sure of is what happened to the notification telling you if someone "liked" someone else's post.  Say, if Tim posted something and Joe and Katie liked it, you'd see "Hansman and Katie like this" in the bottom right.  That doesn't appear to be there anymore.  It also seems that if I liked that post, it wouldn't even show the "You like this post" note that used to be there.


What the foo?

#42744 4/22/2013 - Cubs Calendar - Obsessive Phil Watch

Posted by TWC on 22 April 2013 - 09:25 AM

See, if it was autumn, I'd just assume that Phil's off on his off-the-grid harvest trek up to Humbolt County.  But since it's only April....

Oh and I got to witness Hansman eating a burger so I pretty much win at everything.


Oh jesusfuck... that's gotta be something that one can never un-see.


I feel so very terrible for you, Katie.

Can I just say that I love listening to Pat Hughes talk about the old Adam West Batman show?


I just wish Moreland would just the fuck up.

If you get in line early enough, you might be able to raise Paul Sullivan's ire.

Of course, Paul Sullivan is about 4'-8" tall, so his ire only goes so high.
