BtBS: When Did Amphetamines Use Become Cheating In MLB?

S. Korea to pitchers: speed up!

As part of a green initiative, South Korean games will be shorter. No word on what punishment batters will face for adjusting their cup, helmet, and gloves with every single pitch. When the new season starts next month, a pitcher will have a maximum of 12 seconds to throw the ball after the batter is ready. If he breaches the time limit, a warning will be given the first time and each subsequent warning will be counted as a ball. EMTs have been dispatched to Steve Trachsel's house with a defibrillator as a precaution.

Beyond the Boxscore has featured a couple of graphs similar to this comparing seasons ranked by WAR. I thought I'd give it a try. (I used only catchers with a long Mets tenure and I think my cutoff was ~ 100 PA for excluding first and last seasons. It didn't make much of a difference)

Braden Looper. I don't think he's doing THAT bad, but I groan when he's brought in. He's blown 3 saves in 18 opportunities and lets too many guys on base.I was looking around for good relief...
