Incredible Performance

The Arizona Diamondbacks' Randy Johnson pitched a perfect game against Atlanta. And that included thirteen strikeouts! This is his second complete game in the last 10 games he started. If he keeps up this performance, he could be looking at a Cy Young award in the Fall.

How to Make Jeff Happy

Combine baseball and math. Mmmmm.....

(Of course, baseball is well-suited to statistical analysis, more so than most sports, because of the large number of games played in a season, and the large number of repeat match-ups. Still, it's nice to see someone applying statistics to learn lessons about what works and what doesn't.)

But More Importantly...

Baseball season is with us, and I'm watching the Cubs @ Cincinnati rerun from this afternoon. The Cubs took advantage of an E7 in the 8th to get two runs (they had been up by only one), and will likely win the game. <voice tone="homer simpson">Mmmmmmm, baseball</voice>.

They're Playing with my Head!

While the Cubbies are making me nervous, Pejmanesque has a prayer good for a laugh.

Baseball Note

Connor's team, the Orioles, lost to the Phillies tonight, 14-8. It was closer than it sounds. The Phillies got 5 runs in the top of the 5th, and since you can only get 5 runs in an inning, the Orioles wouldn't have been able to catch up. It was 9-8 going into the 5th. Connor got a single, and was stranded at 3rd, in the second inning.

The Cubbies, meanwhile, beat the Reds, bringing their record to 10-6, in first place.

Ouch

Jay Leno, commenting on the Detroit Tigers' 0-8 start, noted that they have "had a worse Spring then the Republican Guard." Ouch.

Meanwhile, the Cubbies are at 5-4, after losing to Montreal tonight, 7-1. Hint to the Cubs: 1 run in the bottom of the ninth is not a "rally."

Sammy Sosa hit his 500th career home run, making him the 8th player ever to reach that level. Cubs lose, though, bringing their record to 2-2-0.
