    Beemo got a reaction from Nine of twelve in Not to add more doom and gloom   
    You're forgetting the games the Twins lost before before their 18 game losing streak. The Twins also have a 4-1 series loss to the Angels and a 3-1 series loss to the Yankees for a grand total of 25 post-season losses since their last series win. That's 1.39 post-season losses per year! There's your doom and gloom.
     
    On the other hand, the Yankees have lost 56 post-season games in that same 18 years. What a losing bunch of losers!

    I don't know what the A's were thinking, going with the bullpen game. They should've done what the last team to face the Yankees in the Wild Card game did and started their best starter. I'm sure it would've worked better.

    I often like to point out that a catcher's CS% also includes pitcher pickoff caught stealings. Suzuki has been credited with 209 CS in his career but he's actually only thrown out 126 of those. 106 of Castro's 119 credited CS are throws by Castro himself. Adjusting for this, Castro's career throw-out% is 24.6% and Suzuki's is 16.2%.

    I could be wrong but I don't think you can pull a player off waivers in this situation. It would be considered irrevocable waivers and if someone claimed him, he'd be gone.

    Why is Danny Santana continually referred to as the 25th man? Until Molitor proves something different to me I assume that if Santana is on the roster he will play in three out of every four games, just like he did last year. Are you really the 25th man when you play more than half of the roster?

    I doubt it would matter much. Mauer was leading off that inning, so there was no RBI. He got on an and eventually he made it to third base and they still couldn't score him. Since we're talking about the Twins against the Yankees in the post-season, I'd assume that even if Mauer had hit a homerun there, the Twins still lose the game.

    I really wish someone could track blown calls because I would be willing to bet that it doesn't even out for every team over the course of a season. Most teams are probably pretty close but there must be a team or two that end up plus or minus a dozen bad calls after a season. 
     
    Combine blown calls with something like WPA to figure out how much each mistake hurt or helped a team and get a total score for how every team was affected.

    Nitpicking a little, but Papelbon is on the Nationals now who are still pretty good. I definitely agree with your overall point. It's why the I think Twins really should have tried to get maximum value by trading Perkins when they were terrible. Most closers don't stay as elite closers for long.

    Why shouldn't more be tolerated? Why is bowling over the fielder only acceptable if there's the pretense of a slide? Why not allow him to flat-out tackle the guy? Why can they only make contact when it's a play at a base and not on, say, a popup to an infielder? What makes the takeout slide so different from all the other possible ways runners could be interfering with fielders trying to make outs but aren't allowed to?

    Pulled selectively from the middle? Man, I posted half the friggin' article while you pulled a single sentence. You're cherry-picking a single line while I posted the actual reasons Silver wrote that sentence.
     
    Silver made a convincing point about situational hitting. Look at that list of hitters. While they vary slightly up and down the scale, almost all of them share competency in the same traits: average, discipline, power. Looking up and down the list, all of them (without stat-checking every single player) are rounded players without a major flaw in their game.
     
    And Silver drew a completely reasonable conclusion from that data. Are you really trying to discredit Silver by claiming he drew a conclusion before examining the data? You know you're talking about Nate Silver here, right? He's certainly not infallible but this is Nate Silver. He's more accomplished and respected in his field than any of us will be at anything we do, ever. The guy straight-up called two elections and embarrassed almost every political pundit in the nation while he did it.

    Postseason performance is important so we've fired our manager. However, postseason performance doesn't really mean much, so we've hired this guy who was even worse at it.

    No way. All a six man rotation does is take innings from your best starter and give them to your worst. Do you want some of Hughes' innings going to Pelfrey?
