Adam Dunn Wants Your Singles

Cameron Crowe wrote about them.  Pacman Jones makes them reign.  And Kraft sells them in packages of 8, 16, and 24.  Yet, Adam Dunn still can’t manage to hit them.  I’m speaking of singles, of course. Adam Dunn is a great power hitter.  No one denies that.  He has eight seasons of 35+ home runs and is on pace to do that again this year.  But something Adam Dunn is not...

Behind Dunn and a resurgent offense...

Chris Sale K’s 14, Allows 0 ERs…Loses

Chris Sale is a really good pitcher.  The 6’6” hard-throwing lefty out of Gulf Coast College (you remember that school, right?) was 17-9 last...

Better Match-Up Data: Forecasting Strikeout Rate

“Riddle me this,” wrote editor Dave Cameron to me some time ago, “what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?”  OK, that’s not exactly how it went down.  What he actually did was to present me with the challenge of research, with the goal being to develop a model that would forecast the expected odds of an outcome of each match-up between a specific...
