Not that we don’t have plenty to talk about these days with the winter meetings going on (in a place that doesn’t have a winter), but this has been on my mind for a while and I needed a place to get it off my chest.
Here is my baseball pet peeve. Really a media pet peeve. Your watching your favorite highlight show and they go to the web gems/top plays/ etc… and they show a player on the left side of the infield make a great stop and throw out a lumbering catcher running 5 miles an hour by a step. That is not a great play!
They can tell us the catch probability on any ball hit into the outfield but they can’t figure out an algorithm that says based on where the ball is hit and the speed of this runner, this is an out 5% of the time.
Show me a great play with a typical player running, not Brian McCann and his arthritic knees.
