Rabid A's Fan and dedicated disciple of Moneyball living in New York Area and attending high school with a bunch of Yankee fan idiots. I'd like to thank AN for being an oasis of sanity and intelligence.
And I know my username is outdated, but let's be honest, any player I decide to honor will probably be gone soon anyway.

Hiroyuki Nakajima: A Somewhat Scientific Take

Last year, before spring training I wrote a little piece about why I thought the signing of Yoenis Cespedes would work out for the A's, eschewing my usual data-based analysis for some armchair...

Joe Sewell's BB/K Ratio

I was looking through FanGraphs today, and looked at the graphs of my favorite player of all time, Joe Sewell. This is his BB/K rate compared to the league average. Notice the lack of the green line for Sewell. Sewell's career BB/K Ratio was 7.39, and as high as 18.67 some seasons. That's right. Joe Sewell's batting eye was *literally* off the charts.
