I'm glad we have PRE tags.

Darren, I use a FONT SIZE command for preformatted tables, too, to make the projections the right size in TO.

didn't we trade murton to get the OC when we didn't have a shortstop?
   4. Darren Posted: December 11, 2005 at 12:38 AM (#1771668)
We traded murton AND Nomar for OC AND Minky. I recall Theo saying that there was no way he could have gotten Minky without putting Murton in the deal. We'll never know if the deal could've been done without Murton/Minky, but somehow I think it could've been.

Thanks, Sym! I'll try that, but things still probably won't line up.

WTF???!!! WHY THE HELL DON'T THE PRE TAGS WORK?
   6. Darren Posted: December 11, 2005 at 12:49 AM (#1771677)
That is fine. I never have a problem when using it in a post, but it doesn't seem to work when creating a thread.

Richmond:
                  R       H       2B       HR      BB      SO 
Richmond 0.94  0.97  1.08  0.75  0.94  0.89


Makes Marte's numbers look a bit better too.

<font size="+2">no, kevin. i think he means the <font size="+1">...
</font> tags ... i doubt they'll work in posts though 
so this should turn out to look retarded.

Glad I'm not the only idiot.

bah, anyway, you can follow...his HR numbers jump a bit, as does his average, and while his doubles numbers fall a bit, not as much as his HR numbers increase.

What we really need are park factor numbers for every stadium by handedness.
   11. Darren Posted: December 11, 2005 at 01:08 AM (#1771703)
From the Richmond #s, I'd say that it means Marte should have had about 3.3 more HRs last year and 1 less 2B. Full season pace, 38 2B, 35 HR at AAA at age 21. Of course, that .89 in Ks would seem to mean that his dramatic drop in Ks was not so dramatic. Greenville, his 04 home, had a 1.07 K factor.

I really would not mind dealing Marte for a young, great CF like, I dunno, Sizemore! (He'd fit Cleveland's needs better--they could put him at 3B and Coco in CF.)

And height... and shoe size.

Also, for Marte, it can't help to play on a perennially terrible team like Richmond. I know there is evidence to say that lineup protection effects are minimal but it could just be demoralizing to be on that team. I have to imagine the clubhouse is often a mess

The difference is that when you make a post, all HTML is allowed, but EE only gives you the options of allowing all HTML, safe HTML, or no HTML (other than the text itself, of course). You have more options with HTML in the intro than there are in the responses because while we can trust the people who have the keys, we don't want anyone to be doing any old wacky thing in the comments.

you don't trust me, dan?

Why the hell is this crap in the Hot Topics?

Maybe putting your trust in me ain't such a hot idea after all.

Welcome to Sox Therapy, Spivey.

Yeh, I'll take the championship too.

The point is that maybe we could've done it without Murton. If we could've done the OC thing without Murton and just not gotten Minky, I'm sure we would've been fine. I have a hard time believing Minky was integral to the title.
   20. Darren Posted: December 11, 2005 at 06:55 PM (#1772415)
We probably could have won the championship without OC as well. Nomar hit .297 .364 .455 with the Cubs after the trade and played almost every day. He was a butcher in the field, but that hasn't stopped the Yanks from winning a few.

The trade worked out well, but let's not just assume that the OC led directly to the championship.

Also, I enjoy eating my cake and having it too.

I actually don't assume that either, but I don't bother arguing that one anymore.
