    HR DERBY CASUALTIES

      Well we've had  almost a month to see if the HR-D impacted production or not. The least impacted was LA's Matt Kemp with 4 HR's. The rest of the contestants show dubious results;
    Holiday 2
    Fielder 2
    Cano 2
    Weeks 2
    Ortiz 1
    Gonzales 1
    Bautista 1
      Yesterday ESPN commented on Ortiz' slide post Derby. Her's some context, pre Derby the players combined for 157 homeruns or about 30 per month, since the Derby, just 15. The HR DERBY is a bad luck hat!

    Gonzales is the worst cleanup hitter in baseball.

    He has a batting average about .100 higher than Tex and 5 more RBI's.  I guess he hits a lot of singles?

    mikey, relax, it was a joke.  It was directed at Youkillus20 that made that statement back in May.

    I didn't say he was the worst, I was just pointing out facts.

    Clean-up hitters bat 4th. Gonzales bats 3rd!

    It's not bad luck.  It's regression toward the mean.  Most of the hitters that participated in home run derby had higher than expected HR/FB rates (as compared to career norms and adjusted for run environment).  The so-called curse is just a performance correction.

     Good point Chip, but without the numbers, it's just an opinion. Secondly, I had some sloppy math, the Derby Octet was averaging about 50 HR's per month, not the 30 I posted, this rate would generate 37.5 HR per player for a full season, not outside the realm of expectation for the group. The 15 the group has tallied is way off the 50 they had been averaging.

     So, What happened to smiles-all-around? The A-Gon comment back in May, was referring to the Adrian Gonzales of the one HR. Fortunately, a few kind souls pointed out that A-Gon was batting third mostly, not fourth. That was the error in the comment, not his low productivity.

    Your AGon thread has been nominated as the most ridiculous OP of the year and you should be ashamed of it as a Red Sox fan. Are you a Red Sox fan?

     If you vote that way, you'll be duped, to the same degree that the masses were that voted for that "Lyin' Hawaiian". And yes I am  a Red Sox fan, I am not ashamed of being on the same page as Cafardo, Eckersly and the BTN team.

    If only we hadn't invented math. Then more baseball players could do well all the time instead of regressing to the mean. The rules of math are unforgiving!
