Today at THT

Things to read while you realize that anything can happen in this crazy game:

  • Dave Studeman and Mike Webber were tasked with finding little statistical nuggets for inclusion in Bill James’ new Gold Mine book. Bill axed a bunch of them, even though they were pretty darn good. He’s Bill James. He can do that. The ones that didn’t make the cut (or, um, were themselves cut) are here. If these are the rejects, you’re definitely going to want the finished product.
  • Brian Borawski has the week’s business rundown. Included is a note about the Tigers extending their affiliation with the Toledo Mud Hens. Though it’s been over 20 years, when I think of a Tiger guy being sent down, I still think “well, he’s heading down to Evansville.” What a drag it is getting old.
  • Finally, over at Fantasy Focus, Chirs Neault gives the medical background and the medical and fantasy baseball prognosis for Alex Rodriguez and his hip. Meanwhile, Eriq Gardner helps A-Rod fantasy owners to cope with the injury. I don’t see what the big deal is. Everything I’ve read this week suggests that you should actually be much better off with him gone.
  • Attention Cubs fans: no need to worry. I’m sure Carlos Marmol will be much more effective against Pujols, Berkman, and Braun this season than he was against Gene Kingsale. I mean, you really can’t hope to contain Kingsale.

    I am now looking forward to our first meeting with the Braves.  If JF-K is in the lineup, Marmol might get 8 Ks in relief.

    Ron called both Netherland victories. Very impressive.

    Just wanted you to know that I got the reference to Mother’s Little Helper. Then again, I’m old enough to remember when the song hit the charts.
