There aren’t very many switch-hitters any more. Except, of course, for the guys who still do it. If I have some time later, I’ll put together the numbers.
A short version this week.
The OMNICHATTER 500

Aaron Barrett proudly displays his Star-Spangledtude.
Stenosis? I hardly know her.
Not an attractive pairing.
Replacing eight games with eight extra days off makes no sense to me.
Come, Bob Watson, come! The game is afoot!
bb-ref has Ruth at 2214 RBI. If you ignore everything before 1920, it becomes 1990 RBI. So it would seem that they’re ignoring everything before 1920 and have two extra RBI unaccounted for. Maybe they came from the same game as Ty Cobb’s two extra ...Read More...
No Vin Scully?
The Rays don’t seem to be attracting much notice this season and I wanted to highlight them. They lost their GM and manager during the offseason, traded away various players including ones who had been a key component of the team in the past, and didn’t make any big splashy free agent signings (as usual). Things haven’t been easy during the season either as Alex Cobb went out for the year without throwing a pitch, Drew Smyly only made three starts before going on the DL and is out for at least ...Read More...
The Amazing OMNICHATTER
Who else do people want him to be, Buddy Biancalana?
Nothing new, but who doesn’t like reading about Mantle and Maris?

Gomes is back on Sunday. Play him if you got him.

Come for the arrogance:
Stay for the random shots at A-rod, who had ...Read More...
I will always remember calling the Baseball Weekly offices to try and get an answer to a baseball question about playoff tiebreakers. When the person who answered the phone didn’t have the answer, he said, “Let me get Paul.” I was surprised when Paul turned out to be Baseball Weekly’s editor, Paul White. We then had a very nice conversation about the MLB playoff tiebreaker, Baseball Weekly, and baseball in general. I appreciated his time. I have always appreciated his writing. Enjoy your ...Read More...

The Library of Congress opened its photo vault and unleashed these great Babe Ruth pics. (from si.com hot clicks)
Umpires just don’t understand.
Holding Separate Elections For Player and Non-Player Candidates Would Greatly Improve the Hall of Fame’s Era Ballot Vote Process
By holding separate elections for players and non-players, the Committee would be able to continue to add candidates who lasted 15 years in BBWAA voting while also having enough room on the ballot for candidates such as Grich, Evans, Hernandez, and Whitaker whose Hall of Fame cases are strengthened by advanced metrics but were too quickly dismissed by BBWAA voters. In addition, putting the non-players on their own ballot would not only give the Committee space to select a solid candidate like ...Read More...
