  • Some Unofficial BBF Stats

    Baseball is analyzed statistically to a degree that no other sport really approaches. Well, here are some unofficial statistics on Baseball Fever posts among Red Sox Nation:

    5.3 negative posts per Red Sox loss, on average,
    0.2 positive posts per Red Sox win, on average.

    When someone makes an error, or when relief pitchers give up runs, or when someone hits into a double play, and we lose, there seems to be lots of moaning and groaning and explanations of how much better things would be if the *&%$# management would only follow our well-thought out advice.

    But when nobody makes any grievous errors, and when the relief pitchers do their jobs the way we hope they will, and when when we hit into just one double play, and we win, there is almost total silence.

    I wonder why it's like that.

    Ummmm...cuz the Yankees suck??
    YANKEES SUCK!!!!!
    YANKEES SUCK!!!!!

    Another pithy (not pissy!) post by DickZ...I have to admit that most of my posting on the current season has been for the purpose of complaining about Timlin. I don't want to be the online version of Dan Shaughnessy!
    Here's some positive things...
    1. Love that Pedroia! Can't wait for his growth spurt.
    2. Drew is hitting well above .250 .
    3. That Ellsbury is freakin fast.
    4. Dice K has my OK to walk 12 guys per start as long as he keeps winning.
    5. Colon has been everything anybody could have hoped.
    6. The no hitter by a youngster per season streak is still going.

        1. Pedroia really has been great this year. Obviousy he's been good with the bat, but his defense has been tremendous. I think he's definitely in the GG talk by the end of the year.

        2. Drew is doing ok, but it bothers me there there's a new small injury everyday. lol. Vertigo last time. He freakin' hammered that ball in last nights game though. Landed about 20 rows up.

        3. Ellsbury is very fast. He's alot of fun to watch. He can change a game.

        4. DiceK is incredibly frustrating, but I have to agree.

        5. I'm really excited about Colon. I thought he'd be great before he came up, and he's been very solid, and he's still regaining his strength. It's awesome that he's doing good right now hopefully he can keep it up. Then at the end of the year we'll have to decide whether to re-sign him.

        6. Yes, that's definitely awesome to see. It's great to see the home grown talent not only come up, but do well. It's Masterson's turn next year. lol.

          It's like that for every popular team. People like to complain, so when they lose, there's more to complain about. It's really not that hard to figure out. As much as you dislike the act of complaing by a lot of the regulars, i'm sure not everyone is happy about threads like this or sarcastic posts lambasting people for being negative. Pointing out knee-jerk reactions to things that pissed them off doesn't make anything better.

          Oh, and I forgot to moan and groan... David Ortiz is out for at least a month, and maybe the season. Should I look at the bright side and be happy that his wrist will be righted by possible season-ending surgery.

            DickZ, its because we expect to win.

            Thats not an inherently bad thing. Myself, I can appreciate the players a great deal but not have much to say about wins.

            The losses, I feel are missed opportunities, so there is more to say. That doesn't mean one has to bemoan everything.

            I just wish I had a chance to watch more games this year.
