    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Good reason to root for this outcome.

    Has anyone ever won ROY and Comeback Player of the Year in the same season? I'll have to check.

    All right, folks. If you choose to take a swing at this hanging curve, at the very least, be kind.

    Can someone watching the game please decode this pbp:

    Z Almonte grounded into fielder's choice to center, I Suzuki safe at third on error by second baseman B Dozier

    FC to center? Grounded?

    Runner on 1st, ground ball up the middle that looked like DP, Dozier goes to his right and the ball goes off his glove, rolls into CF. I'm sure it was scored E4, with "FC" the call for what should have been a force at 2B (can't assume the DP.)

    I get a pass because I'm having a bad day...I woke up grumpy this morning.

    Should've just let her sleep.

    Also from the pbp:

    Joe Mauer Strike (swinging), Strike (swinging), Ball, Ball, Foul, Ball, Ball, J Mauer walked

    The "Joe doesn't try in the clutch" crowd will just look at the walk and say that he wimps out when two guys are in scoring position. But the pitch-by-pitch tells another story. Sometimes you try and fail, and eventually the pitcher walks you because you won't swing at slop; that won't stop the narrative some people wish to carry.

    TIL: Narratives are usually wrong, but people follow them anyway

    Doumit with the little league 'run until they tag you' base running gaffe. It's been a great game otherwise, but holy crap is he lucky they're beating up on the yanks for a change. Would say something positive about gibson's day but don't want to ji... Wait, did that count as a mention of...ok, I'll just stop.
