  2. you seem to be missing the detroit vs ny yankees match-up from that table…

  3. What about the Orioles game where Chris Davis can set baseball history by hitting home runs in the first 5 consecutive games ( passing the current mark of 4 shared by Willie Mays, Mark McGwire, Nelson Cruz)? The guy has 11 home runs in 11 games going back through last season and something like 20+ RBIs. Should be some fun at bats to watch tonight.

  4. I spent some time trying to figure out how to express the dissonance that I feel from the Nerd Rankings being removed… But I could not come up with anything

  5. They’ll be back, starting in May. Just need to establish some larger samples for them to mean much, I think.

  8. Truly, Carson respects the power of the NERD.

  9. I always like those short-run accomplishments. They’re almost always a mix of all-time legends and dudes who just had a great run at the right time. The guys with elite true talent are overrepresented, but not enough to shut out a much larger pool of other guys.

  10. Sometimes.

  11. Do people really think the center field camera in Atlanta is the best one?

  12. The bookmakers come out with opening lines the night before, but that game was off the board for whatever reason.

  13. I wish that Kazmir didn’t have that rib situation. I wanted to see him pitch.

  14. Given his ground-ball tendencies, Cobb may be referred to commonly as a worm burner. Though Cobb would vouch that no worms, or any other invertebrate were set ablaze during his time on the mound.

  15. Chris Davis also has a monkey.

  16. Will we be seeing NERD scores again this year?

    Comment by maxjusttyped — April 6, 2013 @ 9:32 pm

  17. So the winners of the last three World Series are playing each other today, in a repeat of last year’s NLCS, with one of the most promising rookies in baseball on the mound for one of the teams … and the “notable games” are D-Backs vs. Brewers and Cubs vs. Atlanta.

    Right.

  18. Things like this are a great reminder about probabilities and reality, and it’s fun to root for things that are very unlikely to happen but yet are right there on the verge.

  19. I think with slower pitches the hitters have more time to react, so they can adjust a little and try to get under the ball

  20. I can’t overstate how much better the Braves’ radio broadcasters are over the TV broadcasters. I suspect that sometimes, when people say that, it’s because their TV guys try to be balanced (either out of awareness that other teams fans occasionally see them, or just because of their sense of broadcast ethics) while their radio guys feel free to be complete homers.

    In this case, however, you get a lot of stupid observations and typical homerism from the Atlanta TV crew, but some nice insight from the radio crew. You have a fairly SABR-savvy guy in Jim Powell paired with a Hall of Fame pitcher in Don Sutton, who has an old school mentality. They strike a good balance and they’re both open-minded, so you listen to some nice interaction. They’re both well informed, they have a good sound, and they understand their craft.

  21. NO ONE AROUND HERE RESPECTS THE GIANTS! THERE IS A SORE LACK OF REVERENTIAL TONES AND GENUFLECTING WHEN THEY’RE BEING DISCUSSED IF THEY’RE EVER DISCUSSED AT ALL!
