After how many plate appearances does walk rate stabilize?
august fagerstrom
the glossary is awesome
RoY + MVP?
12:54
Corey Seager hit another 2 HR last night. He has to be in the conversation for MVP with Bryant and Murphy, right?
august fagerstrom
12:54
yep

I probably wouldnt consider Doom as still in the game, though he is an interesting choice for GOAT. #1 out of Madvillainy, Op:Doomsday, & mm Food?
august fagerstrom
12:55
Food is my favorite. Also think Vaudeville Villain is criminally underrated

I think you over-stepped the Royals analysis. They were cruising in a position to take the division once again when they were hit with a bunch of injuries they couldn't overcome. If anything, they were on the way to proving once again that the projections haven't been able to capture something about them, much the same as the O's out-performing projections going on 5 yrs.

Their rotation is healthy and is arguably the worst in the AL. Hosmer is mediocre. Escobar is bad. Cain regressed. All of that went according to the projections. I don't think I overstepped it at all. Some of it is injuries, some of it is guys who I think Royals fans overrated

Did you have tickets to the NFL HOFG?
august fagerstrom
12:57
I could not possibly care less about the NFL

Where does Yasmani Grandal rank among MLB catchers?
august fagerstrom
12:57
could certainly make a case for top 5

Did you do a lot of hammer/tomahawk throws disc golfing?
august fagerstrom
12:58
Very rarely. Basically only when scrambling out of the woods. The one that tore my labrum was my only hammer throw of the day

Jonathan Villar is having a breakout season as good as Devon Travis ... how come no one is asking about him? He's been great even aside from all the steals.
august fagerstrom
12:59
Because we saw Villar be bad for 3 years before this one. Travis has only been good

Do you know where I can find leaders in one two three innings? Anybody?
august fagerstrom
1:00
Play Index?
IP = 1
H = 0
BB = 0
HBP = 0

should do it, right?
unless you want starters in there, too
then you'd need a more advanced query
Play Index could get you 1-2-3 *outings* for relievers
Mark L
1:00
more likely to make the HOF-Kinsler or Votto?
august fagerstrom
1:01
Votto
Tough to see Kinsler having any sort of chance. Votto still has an outside shot, I thhink
Votto seems like the Greinke of hitters too, where even without evidence everyone agrees he should age well
1:02
also two years younger than Kinsler with a higher career WAR and is currently better
2-D
1:03
Also do you throw a flick from discraft?
august fagerstrom
1:03
I do not throw a flick. I do throw a Buzz, and a bunch of Innova discs
Yovanni Gallardo
1:03
not a big fan of the O's chances at making the postseason this year, huh?
august fagerstrom
1:03
even with Bundy I just cannot get behind the rotation
