He struck out the side in 11 pitches. That's impressive. I am impressed.

@Disgruntled Goat @Purple Drank  The insulin-blunting effects of exercise should have him covered as long as he's quick about getting the calzone and eats it really, really fast.

Unless beverages don't even have insulin, in which case he can basically do whatever he feels like.

Great point, Chad. I like this article and I will use its arguments as if they were my own when I yell at people about Puig.

@bpamd3  Isn't he always on it? Until he charges off of it and into a brawl, then limps back on to it.

What happened the second time Puig ran into an out on the basepaths? All these stories are just alluding to it, but no one is actually saying how many orphans he knocked over and puppies he kicked.

Bronson Arroyo is terrible with the bat, which should negate his chances of being a Dodger.

@DBrim @SummerSaint  I just remember that WARP, a while ago, was usually a lot higher than WAR because their version of replacement level was much lower. I don't know if that's changed, though, the way B-Ref and FG decided to synch up more.

How do WARP numbers work relative to WAR? Are they approximately the same, or should we adjust one of them up/down in order to get a meaningful translation?

@BlueMarvin @SummerSaint  Maybe, maybe not? I figure that if anything it might help endurance since you're not moving nearly as much weight around on each pitch.

Reply

@Disgruntled Goat @SummerSaint  Okay. So it would be fair to say that he Saxon'd himself?

Saxon'd: verb, to mistake two similar concepts for each other, such as confusing BAA with BABIP, or SVS with Chris Withrow.

8 months, 3 weeks ago on Hyun Jin Ryu’s Impending Sophomore Slump?

Reply

Wait, I don't understand. Fangraphs has Ryu's BABIP at .296, B-Ref has it at .300, and Mark Saxon is high or something with his .252. I even checked to see if Saxon was looking at Ryu's BABIP while hitting, but that clocked in at a healthy .343.

What's with the discrepancies here?

Did we ever find out how much weight Ryu lost over the course of the season? It was pretty noticeable at the end.
