Jim Leyland on autographs

I don't save stuff. I was kidding the guys before the game today, I don't even ask for an autographed ball by anybody, because you can't read the names on it. I've got all kinds of baseballs, you don't know who they are. I don't need an autographed ball from my team or any other team.

Note of the Ortiz grand slam

Each of those four runs were charged to a different pitcher Veras gave up the double to Middlebrooks. Smyly walked Ellsbury. Alburquerque gave up the single to Pedroia. Benoit only gets credit for Ortiz scoring himself. Wonder how often that has happened.

Does Jeff Passan understand how statistical comparison works?

"After the All-Star break, Trout hit .324/.479/.539. The average and slugging percentage are superlative. The on-base percentage is wondrous. Since 1961, only three players – Barry Bonds, Edgar Martinez and Frank Thomas – have produced at those triple-slash levels over a full season." Apples to Apples Jeff...

How can a team with Miggy Cabrera (5.5 WAR), a red-hot Austin Jackson (4.2 WAR) and slugging Prince Fielder (2.9 WAR) be only 11.7 wins above replacement for hitting and defense? If you do some quick adding, you will see that just those three combine for 12.6 WAR. Answer: When you give 456 plate appearances to Delmon Young (-1.0 WAR), 430 more to Brennan Boesch (-1.4 WAR) and 214 to Ryan Raburn (-1.9 WAR), well, you are not helping out the cause much.
