+

During last night's Home Run Derby, ESPN's Chris Berman renamed the study and presentation of advanced statistics in baseball, and...I dig it. Let's all embrace this new term meaning that sabermetrics are so automatic they're sabermatic!

Pitching coach effectiveness

1

I decided to set out to determine which coaches pitching staffs have out-performed (via ERA) their expected results (FIP, xFIP, SIERA). I would be interested to see if others have a better idea how to do this.

Help JFK's Quote of the Day:

17

Hello, I’m jrockies and a member of Purple Row. Every day I post a baseball related quote to the site noted as "JFK’s Quote of the Day." I have, however, come up with a problem. Most of the quotes I have are from former players/coaches (Berra, Mayes, Hornsby, Peter Uueberroth, etc.) or older authors and sports writers (Boswell, Russell Baker, Kahn, etc.) and I don’t have many from players and writers of today’s period. As an attempt to build my list of quotes I have decided to ask the different baseball communities around SBNation to help me out. I don’t get to read local articles for non-Denver teams very often and I know that players have said something wise/funny/absurd that should be remembered somewhere ("These are thin mints. I put them in the freezer. My favorites. So good." ~Reds outfielder Adam Dunn, on the Girl Scout cookies he keeps in his locker) So here is the challenge: In the comments section post your all-time favorite baseball quotes (I don’t have all of them) and your favorite quotes you’ve heard from around the league in recent years. For the next two weeks I will post my quote of the day in the comments here. Thanks, jrockies JFK
