    But seriously, Powder or not, Jeremy Bonderman does look like he's about 50.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    David Eckstein is SO TINY that his uniform number is almost tucked into his pants.

    I always knew he was little, but all of a sudden he's just a little leprachaun.

    I love Bonderman, but he's still so young. Imagine the contract he'll get if he reaches free agency at, what, 26?

    Re: World Series Game 4 Thread

    Does everybody remember this chart that I posted in the Game 3 thread?
    Code:
    
    After Game Three ...
                  
               Pitches Seen   PA   P/PA   BB   PA/BB  Balls  Balls/PA  Runs
    Cardinals      426       113   3.77   13    8.69   172     1.52     13
    Tigers         333        99   3.36    3   33.00   104     1.05      5
    If you do, good. If not, look at it.

    Let's have some fun here, and we'll take a look at that Tigers third inning pitch-by-pitch ...
    • Curtis Granderson - Ball, Ball, C Granderson doubled to right
    • Craig Monroe - Ball, Ball, Ball, Strike (looking), C Monroe grounded out to third
    • Carlos Guillen - Ball, Ball, Ball, Strike (foul), Ball, C Guillen walked
    • Magglio Ordonez - M Ordonez flied out to left
    • Sean Casey - S Casey singled to right, C Granderson scored, C Guillen to third
    • Ivan Rodriguez Strike (looking), Ball, Ball, I Rodriguez singled to right, C Guillen scored, S Casey to second
    • Placido Polanco Strike (foul), Ball, Ball, P Polanco grounded into fielder's choice to shortstop, I Rodriguez out at second

    The plate appearances bolded are plate appearances in which the hitter got ahead in the count. Granderson, Monroe, Guillen, Rodriguez and Polanco all got ahead of the count. Granderson, Guillen and Rodriguez all contributed to the Tigers third inning run production. Sean Casey also contributed, and his single came off an even 0-0 count.

    That's five out of seven hitters that inning who got ahead in the count. The other two hitters were in even counts, which means that zero hitters for Detroit in that inning ended their plate appearance in a pitcher's count.

    It's amazing what plate discipline, getting ahead in the count, and avoiding a pitcher's count can do for an offense.

    That is slightly small for a man, but ubertiny for a ballplayer.

    I swear to God, I'll eat three of my fingers if Duncan isn't juicing. He's MADE of roids.

    YES. That is it.

    My GREs thank you, as this is about as much preparation as I've done for them.
