I see that the low pitching staff strikeouts article got removed, which I posted earlier.

I get it - it is pretty crappy that our pitchers can't strike anyone out. But what is so wrong with a statistical analysis article (and well done, at that) that it needs to be removed from letting people read? Are we only allowed to post positive articles now that will glow optimism?

I think it has to do with Nick Nelson already having posted it just three days ago.

Ah crap, my apologies. Move along - nothing to see here.

If you didn't see it, you didn't see it. No apologies necessary :-) It was a very good article, IMO.

Your original thread was locked after the link was posted to Nick's. Then it got deleted, which is why you couldn't find it. It has now been undeleted and merged with the new one.


Now it's getting locked again. :P


In summation, follow the link to Nick's original thread for additional commentation. ;)
