  1. When life gives you Cistulli, make Cistulliade:

    “And also Lucas Harrell’s ground-ball rate, which he throws 32.4% of the time and is likely responsible for his 56.6% ground-ball rate.”

  2. well, it is pretty tough to get any lift against a pitcher who just rolls the ball to home plate, so you’d expect the GB% to be pretty high

  3. Paradoxically not at all true of kickball!

  4. Is Zach Greinke cursed? He strikes everyone out, walks almost no one, keeps his groundball rate around 50%… and somehow, through all of last season and now the start of this one, the ERA just doesn’t measure up.

  5. Why is there no option for infinity runs scored?

  6. just curious–what’s with the non-coverage of perfect game on the site?

    even if the Ms offense deserves a good deal of credit for their approach of swinging out of the zone all day…this is still a pretty rare and impressive accomplishment, no?

  8. Maybe that Sea offense was tired from vigorous celebrating after laying the worst start of his career on Justin Masterson.

  9. Obviously it’s the pro mariners bias

  10. no no, not suggesting that at all. i’m just surprised because previously the site has celebrated this kind of thing with immediate posts–see halladay, braden, galarraga, etc.

    my “concern” if you want to call it that is that we’ve gotten desensitized to great, if fluky, pitching performances in the current run environment.
