I wouldn't get paranoid about the immunity deals. They may just be a way of cutting off the loose-hanging threads so that the prosecutor can move forward.

I deny having made any such statement. Mathematical probability, Brian Cartwright might not be. . .

Do you really think we need to wire-tap the President in order to catch him saying something goofy?

It's in the 4th percentile. 3.2% of players with 450 plate appearances have lower rates than that. It's precisely the same percentage as Larry Bowa in 1978, although in a different number of PA.

That wasn't it, bud. He was missing. OK, sometimes he was missing by inches, but he was missing.

SS Adalberto Mondesi is the first hitter in major-league history to record at least 10 homers and 25 stolen bases in fewer than 250 plate appearances in a single season.

For what it is worth, I know that de Grom is a tremendous pitcher, but I ain't buying the 9.1 WAR. I wonder if he'd be the first starting pitcher ever with more WAR than Wins in a significant number of innings?

Same thing with my uncle. My Aunt, who was obese and had crippling arthritis, crawled out of the car before the train hit, but he stayed in the car--1963 Plymouth Fury-- and tried to re-start it. Tried to get out too late.

For those watching the Red Sox, Eckerseley did walk 6 men and win the game one time, July 12, 1975, beat Nolan Ryan 9 to 1. He never walked 7 men in a game.

Not that this is the sole factor, Pete, but offense ALWAYS decreases in September. Last year major league OPS in September was .743, as opposed to .771 in June, .750s in July and August.

I will take it you have never been an eight-year-old boy holding a newly-flattened penny in your hand. I'm telling you it's a rush. . .

You're not going to believe this, but I swear it is true. I had an uncle who was killed when a train hit his car--in a '63 Plymouth. Absolutely true.

When we were kids we used to put pennies on the railroad track and retrieve them after the train flattened them. Somebody came to school to tell us that putting ANYTHING on a railroad track, even a penny, might de-rail the train. We thought that was stupid.
