Re: Random Thoughts
I can't recall but weren't there actually stats dug up somewhere that said a leadoff homerun actually was a rally killer? If I remember correctly the difference was only half a run, in terms of rallies. I don't know how we ever arrived at that stat.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
