It would seem you are perhaps wasting too much energy with common sense. We will find out more about this virus as time goes by. There seems to be more evidence that the 6 foot distancing is a rather arbitrary number without much proof. They are also finding it's viable much longer on surface and in the air than originally thought. Imagine a pitcher, steps off the mound, goes to the rosin bag, then his mouth or blows on his hand...opps, new ball??? And, testing is NOT perfect. I wish some would have as much passion for life as they do for a game....oh, there is that common sense thing again.
I don't know... I think he knew his best playing days were behind him when he slipped to a .797 winning percentage in 1876 and could only finish 53 of the 60 games he started. He could read the handwriting on the wall.
Great to see the intensity that Givens is showing this year. When he slammed the ball back into his glove I thought, man, this guy really wants it this year!
Are you publishing the cumulative stats anywhere? What's our record? Maybe you been posting and I've just missed it... I love following these (simulated) games!
That's a feature, not a bug. They can't figure out a way to level revenues, so they have the superteams like the Yanks/Sox/Dodgers compete in several short series that they mathematically will eventually lose one of 80+% of the time.
There was Jeffrey Hammonds hype. They considered bringing him straight to the majors out of spring training in '93 with no minor league experince. But, no, he wasn't quite at the level of McDonald. Maybe more on par with Bundy. At the time his signing bonus was the highest ever for a college player.
I just opened up a copy of the 1994 Bill James Player Ratings Book, possibly for the first time in 25 years. The Hammonds comment says "He's been compared to Rickey Henderson, although he doesn't walk. Which is like saying someone is a flat-chested Dolly Parton."
