  1. Does anyone know when the Conference Finals games will start? I assume game 1 will be Saturday (maybe Sunday?)
  2. Is there a place I can download individual MLB statistics so far the season? Ideally I would want to download them in a excel or text file.
  3. QUOTE (Pants Rowland @ Apr 28, 2009 -> 02:07 PM) The t-shirts from the Chevy Pride Crew are some of the worst ever. It is not worth getting injured or injuring someone else over. never understood why people get all excited for the chevy pride crew. I personally think it needs to go and the shirts are horrible
  4. QUOTE (Buehrle>Wood @ Apr 28, 2009 -> 01:40 PM) Right Field corner roast beef sandwiches. Enough said. ^^^
  5. Just wondering if anyone knew if people used win probability to create a measure of how clutch a player is. It seems to me on first glance that looking at how much a player affects predicted win probabilities is a great way to measure how clutch a hitter is. (by win probability I mean something like this). It might make the most sense to look at what percent of the maximum change the hitter has on the win probability instead of just how much the player changes the win probability. For instance, if a hitter could change the probability of winning by 5% with the best possible outcome (ie. a home run) but raises the probability of winning by 2% (ie. with a double), then he got 40% of the gains to his at bat with respect to winning the game. Otherwise, you could look at the total change in win probability by a players at bats.
  6. I didn't know about it beforehand, but according to Crede on the pre-game show today, BA used to sing that song on the team flights and in the locker room.
  7. Not a big fan of twitter, but I thought this feed was interesting. It gives what happens in the Sox game and the probability the Sox will win. Sox currently have 98 % chance to beat twinkies. http://twitter.com/whitesox_fg
  8. Plus MLB network cuts to the games as they are being played if something exciting is going on. Also it has excellent historical footage.
  9. I'd be interested in seeing that too, I was hoping they would show it on TV
  10. awesome, I have high expectations of him
  11. lets go danks, hopefully we can get a little offense
  12. QUOTE (BaseballNick @ Apr 8, 2009 -> 12:40 PM) The lines were crazy. I don't ever remember waiting that long to get in either. I'm not sure what the hold up was. Lupe Fiasco didn't sing. It was Matthew Santos. Santos, apparently is on Fiasco's record label - I'm not too familiar with either singer. Santos was average, really nothing special. The flyover was the best part of the anthem. Lupe Fiasco performed before the game with Santos, Santos did the anthem
