(11 June 2014 - 11:46 AM)Ibanez was clutch 2 YEARS AGO. An organization can only smell the rosy farts of his legacy so long before the rotten stench of second half 2013-2014 requires Lysol, and an unconditional release.
(03 June 2014 - 03:55 PM)I am a novice when it comes to baseball, but have often wondered why baseball players prepare to ‘steal bases’ differently than other athletes prepare to move. My inquiry has to do with the observation that starting with both feet on the ground slows the initial acceleration of runner and penalizes them by about 3'. Consider the following and maybe a comment would help explain. http://www.sports-sp...ase_running.pdf
If the distance between 1st & 2nd were 3' shorter, how would this affect the percentage of stolen bases? Another way to look at this percentage would be to estimate how many close umpire calls occurred where-in the runner was called out. vic
