  1. I commend you saying you were wrong and bringing this up. So much better here than teh mainstream media. I love the different analysis on this site and it definitely is one of my main sources of info. Keep up the good work!

  2. The most credible apologies are followed by an appropriate change of behavior.

  3. as a yankee fan even i can admit that jepsen has absolutely filthy stuff.

    it’s a shame the umps are just so awful with the strikezone, they have basically made a mockery of it in the postseason so far. can you use your magical bag of tools to pull of charts that will show actual pitch location vs what they were called for the postseason?

  4. I’ll grant you the Arod homer, but I didn’t find that game all that exciting or great. It was five hours long. Too, the conditions were horrible and the fielding was sloppy (probably a link there.)

  7. I thought last night’s ump did a good job behind the plate.

  8. When did he apologize? He mentioned that Game One was ‘boring,’ at least in a certain sense of the word. He then said Game Two was the opposite. He never said the series was ‘boring.’

  9. What does Carson need to apologize for again? If you were personally offended by Carson’s opinion that game one was uninteresting, you should probably just stay off the Internet entirely.

  10. Where did he say he was wrong? He said the previous game was boring (it was). He then contrasted it with the following game, which wasn’t. His opinion didn’t change, but the nature of the games did.

    It may be easier to argue when you don’t comprehend what you’re reading, but it doesn’t make the arguments better.

  11. There was no apology here, nor was one necessary.

    Again: it may be easier to argue when you don’t comprehend what you’re reading, but it doesn’t make the arguments better.

  12. Fuentes was so stupid with that AB. He got A-Rod 0-2 by pitching him in. Why the hell did he then throw a fastball up and away? You know, where probably 500 of his more than 600 regular and post-season homers have been hit off of. Why not throw a slider in the dirt? Why not another inside heater?

  13. low strikes were basically a coin flip, and the left edge of the plate was about 4 inches wider than it should be.

  14. I think that Sean was talking to me. Maybe I have exciting confused with great, but that was played in football weather. It’s a matter of personal taste, I suppose, but I don’t care for players wearing Elmer Fudd hats.

  15. Carson, great piece here on Jepsen.

    Comment by Jesse — October 19, 2009 @ 8:34 pm

  16. Sorry, I don’t really understand the numbers that are being thrown around about Jepsen’s pitches. Are you saying that his fastball is rising over a foot? I don’t mean to sound trollish, but I don’t really believe that’s possible. I’d love to hear more about how these measurements are created, and if I’m totally missing the point I’d love to hear how. Thanks.

  17. Zack,

    I’m sure it’s way to late for you to notice this, but…
    It’s falling a foot less than an idealized spinless pitch.

    It’s not rising from when it leaves the pitchers hand, but it’s falling LESS than expected. All of these numbers are relative to a theoretical spinless pitch – Ignoring air resistance on that pitch.

  18. There are two ways one can know if they have bruxism, the first is after your partner complains about the constant grinding the second is you notice that following a night’s rest you get and have a terrible ache in your jaws and a throbbing, persistent headache. If this is you, get a checkup by a dental profesional.
