  1. Who the fuck is mark Rogers?

    Comment by Don Draper — August 10, 2012 @ 10:15 am

  2. Is there a logical reason why you provided Mark Rogers with such bountiful discretion? Or is it simply that he is a Brewer?

  3. Your illegitimate father. Didn’t you know.

  4. a sad and lonely and sad commenter might say that you should use the Pythagorean distance rather than a straight sum, but I’m pretty happy so I’ll let it slide.

  5. Wow, did not expect Brett Myers to be the answer.

  6. Where’s Zito or Cliff Lee? They both have tremendous lateral and vertical movement on their CB’s

  7. A different sad and lonely and sad reader might be inclined to interrupt their sad and lonely Friday morning breakfast to apply the Pythagorean theorem or distance formula, if you will, to the data. With this metric, Kyle Weiland possesses said moving-est curveball (relative to spin-less pitch). Brett Myers, and Mike FIers round out the podium, followed by Adam Wainwright, Evan Scribner, Alex Cobb, Dillon Gee, Yoshinori Tateyama, Justing Germano and Miles Mikolas.

  8. Does Manny Machado’s promotion not merit the addition of a single NERD point?

  9. 26-year-old wholly unspectacular rookies are all the rage!

  10. He probably won’t be a 10 forever, but he’s got an 81 xFIP- through his first two starts, has struck out 25% of batters (while walking only 4.2%), and has sat with his fastball at just under 95 mph.

  11. Mark Rogers knows when someones being stupid and Mark Rogers knows you are that

  12. Why is it everytime that Fangraphs wants to measure the total movement of the pitch they (wrongly) add the horizontal and vertical components of the movement linearly instead of quadratically.

  13. I agree 100% that the Dodgers are bad to watch but Kershaw is fun to watch. It’s miserable being a Dodger fan right now.

  14. Or Clayton Kershaw, thrower of the fabled “Public Enemy #1.”

    For all to see:

  15. I know, being 1 game out of first sucks.

    I enjoy watching stars and scrubs teams. Watching a contender give at-bats to Juan Uribe, Adam Kennedy and James Loney triggers all kinds of fun ponderings.

    Comment by Brazen Reader — August 10, 2012 @ 1:50 pm

  16. Yeah, I cringe everytime Loney is announced.

    Comment by My echo and bunnymen — August 10, 2012 @ 1:57 pm

  17. Amazingly enough, Adam Kennedy is doing fairly well. It’s Loney, Gwynn Jr., Uribe, Treanor, and Rivera especially that is hurting the team.

  18. I should also say that being 1 game out of first is nice, but it’s miserable watching this team “attempt” to hit. Both Ellises are doing well, and Kemp and Ethier are doing well, but the other 5 guys make for depressing television.

  19. I spent the last two nights watching the Astros. They are only technically preferable to a world without baseball. I felt compassion for them, actually.

  20. Don’t worry, they’ll have much more success in the AL West last year.

    New picture at the link….

  21. last = next

    Comment by Brazen Reader — August 10, 2012 @ 6:23 pm

  22. Interestingly, I also watch the Orioles, the two worst teams to watch according to NERD. I call shenanigans!
