Today’s Complete Schedule Minutes of the Corey Kluber Society Meeting — 16 June 2013 Called to Order Meeting called to order in Cleveland, Ohio, at approximately 1:05pm ET by umpire Mark Carlson. Members Present As noted previously, not entirely clear. Although, one assumes that all members who are present are bound by their dual interests in Truth and Beauty. Reading of Agenda Motion To approve the agenda for 16 June 2013 — which agenda mostly concerns watching Corey Kluber‘s start on a couch somewhere. Vote Motion carried. Resolved Agenda for the meeting on 16 June 2013 approved without modification. Business: First Motion Motion from Carson Cistulli In terms of raising awareness in society of Corey Kluber, members should consider noting in public that Kluber recorded the third-lowest xFIP of all starters on Sunday, and also the highest WAR, both as calculated using FIP and also runs allowed. It’s also probably worth mentioning that Kluber has posted the third-lowest park-adjusted xFIP (63 xFIP-) among 111 qualified starters over the last month. Vote Motion carried. Resolved Citing Kluber’s defense-independent and also just his regular numbers will help promote Corey Kluber awareness. Business: Second Motion Motion from Carson Cistulli The enterprising internet user who added information regarding the Corey Kluber Society to Kluber’s own Wikipedia page ought to be recognized for his or her efforts. Vote Motion carried enthusiastically. Resolved Wikipedia user ought to be recognized. Business: Third Motion Motion from Carson Cistulli The internet user who reverted Corey Kluber’s Wikipedia page back to its previous state (i.e. before information regarding the Society was added) was doing so merely out of respect for that site’s integrity and not with any sense of malice directed at or towards the Society. Vote Motion carried, but with considerable discussion. Resolved (Mostly) The internet user who reverted Kluber’s Wikipedia page is likely not a human manifestation of the abstract concept Evil. Business: Fourth Motion Motion from Carson Cistulli We should all watch the three consecutive strikeouts Kluber recorded after an error by third baseman John McDonald put runners at first and third with no outs. Vote Motion carried. Resolved Here’s the first one, via a front-hip two-seamer to Adam LaRoche: And the second one, by means of a slider to Jayson Werth: And then third, a curve to Ian Desmond: Meeting Adjourned Meeting adjourned at ca. 3:25pm ET.
