Week 2 Recap

Postby CubColtPacer » Mon Apr 20, 2009 7:55 pm

Just a couple quick thoughts about this article here:

http://www.northsidebaseball.com/index. ... Itemid=117

I thought this line was a little bit disingenuous:

as could be seen in the final two games of the Cardinals series - they still struggled to pitch scoreless innings to maintain a lead


Yes, the bullpen did give up the 1 run lead in that game. But they also only gave up 1 run in 5 innings, and it seemed wrong to imply that game as an example of where they pitched poorly.

And this one:

Bradley has still not seen the field since, though he is expected to play in Tuesday's series opener against the Reds


Bradley pinch-hit on Saturday and grounded out.

Ramirez was fine as a pick as the hitter of the week, although Lee and Kosuke had great weeks as well, and Ramirez only played 3 out of the 5 games this week while the other two played all 5.

To the point about Bradley - I completely missed that he pinch hit on Saturday - that's my mistake. And yeah, Kosuke was my next choice as hitter of the week, and he probably would have won if not for Ramirez' annual badassery rearing its head Saturday.

I read that as "not fielded", which is technically correct. :wink:

Not seeing the field definitely implies not playing in field, regardless of pinch hitting duty.

Yeah, well. A poor choice of words or not I just flat out missed that he played Saturday. Anyway, is there anything that you guys would like to see added to these recaps stat wise or just commentary wise? I'm kind of feeling around in the dark as of right now until I can figure out exactly how I want to do them.

Also, does anyone know how to sort stats on baseball reference? That is, it allows you to do "past 7 days" and such. But once you hit that the other splits disappear. That is, what if I want to see how, say, only the relievers have pitched in the last 7 days? Any help on this front would be greatly appreciated (also if there's another site that makes this easier, that would be cool too)
