Topics I've Started

Sorry if this has been mentioned before. When I'm using my mobile device (Android) for navigating the message board, the Recent Topics window in the top right-hand corner of the screen will disappear. It is there when I first load the page, then disappears after a few ticks.


Obviously this isn't a big deal (I've been dealing with it for, like, ever), but I figured I would throw it out there in case its effecting anybody else. It is convenient to have those links available when you're surfing the MB.

Depressing numbers

12 April 2013 - 04:12 PM

After Fujikawa blew the game today, somebody in the Gameday thread queried whether the Cubs have the worst 9th inning pitching in baseball over the last two seasons. My first reaction was, "I know they're bad surely somebody's worse." Turns out I'm overly optimistic.

Here are some assorted stats of how Cubs relievers have performed in high leverage situations (according to Fangraphs) for the 2012 and early 2013 season:

Save conversion % - 57.4 (tied for last)
ERA - 13.06 (dead last)
BAA - .280 (dead last)
OBP - .395 (dead last)
SLG - .490 (dead last)
BB% - 13 (dead last)
% Batters HBP - 1.7 (dead last)

I think I'm going to stop now. My heart hurts.

Scardenfreude anyone?
