I was at last night's game and noticed a stat on the scoreboard during one of Hanigan's at bats.

"Ryan has hit safely in all 10 of his 13 starts this season."

Let that one sink in a little....:D

Amazing what they can come up with when they really crunch the numbers.

I'm just glad the Reds have an outstanding backup catcher. I am very pleased with the Reds catching tandem to date.

We saw that at the game last night too, but I don't recall if it's supposed to be he's hit safely in 10 of his 13 starts, or whether its supposed to be that he's hit in all 13 of his starts.

It's the former. Remove "all" from the sentence and it becomes accurate.

He's hit safely in all 10 games in which he's had a hit.

That's almost 100% of the time.

Unfortunately, he is batting .000 in games in which he did not have a hit.

I predict a new stat BAWIG: Batting average while in game.

Creating a new SABR buzz with an immediate internet following has never been easier. BAWIG, guaranteed to make you sound like a complete a-hole know it all to your friends and impress ladies with your inner knowledge of the game. You know what they say, "60% of the time... you kill a donkey." I have no idea what that means. BAWIG hilarious.

Just goes to show you can twist the numbers to say whatever you want. For example those numbers say that the unemployment rate isn't quite high enough, just by a smidge. :cool:

I'm skeptical. Do you have any stats to back that up?

In every start made this year by Bronson Arroyo (8 starts) and Micah Owings (7 starts)... they have been the pitcher of record.

Arroyo >> 5-3 record
Owings >> 3-5 record (1 loss in relief)
