Welcome! I am your automated overflow thread! COME WITH ME IF YOU WANT TO LIVE.

Gameday Thread II

This is a weird ass-game.

Thinking About Carlos Beltran

Now that the All-Star game has come and gone, the next major event for Major League Baseball is the July 31st non waiver trade deadline.  One of my favorite things about baseball are...

How Might Losing Buster Posey Affect the Giants?


Whenever I see an injury occur-baseball or otherwise-I cringe, and I immediately think, "wow, that sucks."  There's always a bit of a detachment involved, simply because there isn't any real...

Fun With Numbers: How Good (or Bad) Would Aubrey Huff be at Third?


A little while ago, we found out that Aubrey Huff is open to the idea of playing third base again to help the Giants out while Pablo Sandoval is out of action.  It's a really nice offer, but it...

Buster Posey's Early Season Struggles


Buster Posey isn't off to a great start this year.  Yes, it's only been 137 plate appearances.  And...yes, we're not even a quarter of the way into the season.  But it's still not fun to watch. ...

The Giants and Baserunning


According to Mychael Urban, the Giants have discussed adding José Reyes of the New York Mets.  I don't know who his decent source is, but Reyes would instantly add a nice boost to the Giants'...

Thoughts on Pablo

I want you to do something for me. I want you to place your hand on your stomach and take deep breaths through your nose and out through your mouth; feeling your stomach rise and fall with each...

Examining J.T. Snow's Defense


I know it's 2011 and all, but I like to look back on the old days every once in a while.  This has absolutely nothing to do with the 2011 Giants, but I figure this may make some good food for...

Looking Back on Brandon Belt's 2010 Season

Lemonade and smiles, just like grandma made

Bridging the Gap


Well, hi there! Grant was kind enough to introduce me to you all the other day, so this should come as no surprise.  My name is JT Jordan, and I'm the new guy- the "stats guy," to be exact.  I ran...

Revisiting AT&T Park's Affect on Hitters


People seemed to get a kick out of my component park factors from a while back, so I thought I'd update them and include ALL seasons, not just '05-'09. In sum: right-handed hitters don't see a big drop in production- about 2%. Left-handed hitters see about a 5% drop, which is bigger than what I found in my initial "study."

2010 Fans Scouting Report


Please fill one out if you've got a few minutes to spare!

How Does AT&T Park Affect Hitters?


I don't like to self-promote, but I think some people would find this interesting.

wOBA Primer


I'm not the type to self-promote, but the article was originally meant to be posted here. I want to make sure that at least a few McCoven benefit from it. It's very lengthy and math-y. That said, I suggest reading it when you have the time (and energy) to absorb it. If you don't care to read all the technical details, you can skip to the end for a summary.


A Question on Context-Adjusted Defense

Because I'm bored and because I love tinkering around with old systems, I thought I'd try and recreate Charlie Saeger's "Context-Adjusted Defense."  It's a system that really isn't necessary...


Both Present and Futures Bright for Villalona

The first two rounds in the cage, his swing looks slow and late, the balls looping lazily into right field. This is the top prospect in the Giants organization? The guy just named to the Futures...
