Today at THT

Things to read as you realize that there are some things in life you never would have noticed if they had not first been pointed out to you:

  • Dan Turkenkopf has a big piece of BABIP, DIPS, and CQA. This is where I’d normally insert a cute little joke or something, but that would require that I first understand Dan’s article, and though maybe I should be, I’m not ashamed to admit that I don’t.
  • In honor of Valentine’s Day, Richard Barbieri’s This Annotated Week in Baseball History takes a look at players with the last name “I spent $300 on dinner and shelled out for roses and jewlery too, so you’re damn RIGHT I expect to be invited up for coffee.” Wait, that’s not right. He looks at players with the last name Hart. My apologies.
  • Finally, over at Fantasy Focus, Alex Zelvin looks at how to handle double headers in Rotohog (short answer: there is no hope beyond suicide and the warm embrace of death) and there’s a mailbag. Pfun Pfact: There has not been an actual piece of U.S. Mail sent to an internet writer or publishing concern since 1996, thus rendering the term “mailbag” a hilariously anachronistic misnomer!. In this way, “mailbag” is not unlike other internet terms such as “editor” and “truthful”!
  • And it’s not a softball, Jason. It’s, um, an ancient example of a “bat and trap” ball, which shows you just how historically-reverent we here at THT truly are!
