Music, pitching mechanics, Tigers, and Pistons. Pretty much sums me up. Go ahead and read my website if you'd like to read something a little bit different.

DBB Dog Dads...

So, I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before on here but I got a shelter dog about 6 months ago. He's a pit/lab mix and a huge baby to boot, probably about a year and a half old. All that...

The Gumdrops and Roses Off Topic Thread

It's been pretty hard lately to go into a thread around here without running into a hundred new comments of argumentative hogwash between two people that aren't seeing eye to eye. I'm not a big...

Mechanics Breakdown: This guy

The closer is special mentality position in baseball. It's like 5% pitching, 70% issuing heart attacks to fans, and 25% showmanship. Among all the available trade options, internal promotions,...

Canada and beer. This is all things DBB, except I didn't get surly watching this.

The Distorted Waltz

Because I promised linkage for some of you, here's where you can buy either a hard copy or a digital copy of my bands first album. Thanks in advance to anybody who spends the cash. Everyone's support is greatly appreciated. It should be up on Amazon and Itunes eventually, but that's a bit longer of a process I guess.

Off-season Boredom Thread.

Ok, it's that time of the year and I haven't seen one posted yet so I'll go ahead and do it. Unless you like baseball as much as I do there isn't a lot of sports going on during the week right now...

Max Scherzer: Fastball to success.

Last week I dug a bit into Max Scherzers repertoire and turned up some evidence as to why his changeup has been less then stellar this season. One pitch does not make a pitcher though and in 147...

Consistently Inconsistent: The Change-up of Mighty Max.

A closer look at why Max Scherzer boggles the mind -- and patience.

So I finished an album today...

This is the mixed and mastered version of my bands debut album. We still need to decide on a title and finish the album art, but we were all a bit too excited to be done to just wait to put it up. There will be physical and digital copies available in the near future as well as shows and such. If you're interested my favorite contribution to the album is Picking Neptune's Pocket, our instrumental track.

Looking for some help from my BYB pals.

So a friend of mine would desperately love to meet Jhonny Peralta. I know that players sometimes will wander about and sign some autographs before hand, but I'm taking her to the game on May 6th...

The RoboCop Cometh.

"The statue's definitely coming," said Jerry Paffendorf, who spearheaded the controversial 2011 campaign to raise money and find a home in Detroit for the statue. "The only thing that's up in the air is the timeline and where it's going to go." From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20120404/METRO/204040383#ixzz1r8SDYLId

A really advanced look at Joel Zumaya.

I know everything Joel Zumaya is kinda played out but Kyle at Driveline Baseball did a really nice write-up on him that I just now noticed.

Moose ain't no All Star Yet.

Brief little conversation with Patrick Hayes help's explain everything. @madpoopz LOL, Dumars as the ultimate troller would actually make more sense than trying to figure out rational reasons for his recent moves— Patrick Hayes (@patrick_hayes) February 24, 2012

The Distorted Waltz

So I promised my guitarist that I would shamelessly promote our band The Distorted Waltz. Not like there's much basketball to talk about right now, so maybe some new music would be good way to keep our critiquing chops up to par.

Ahhhh...The Pitch Count Debate

I've been frequenting the BYB commenting boards again and I've seen a lot of talk about pitch counts and the ever lasting debate are they necessary and when should workloads increase?  Well, since...

Pitcher Analysis: Adam Wilk

So I don't normally self promote, but I figured my game live analysis might generate some interest around here and let people know that I'm not dead and the blog will slowly be coming back to life.

Looking at Brad Penny

I made a fanshot a week ago noting a very strange release point that Brad Penny has.  I said when I had the time I'd give it a look into, so here I am with the time and Fangraphs wide open.   L...

Brad Penny's release point (and it's consistent through his career, I checked) is very close to dead center with the plate. Most releases come a bit more left in the graph. Could be indicative of his career injury problems.

The Baseball Project

I was looking through the Amazon Mp3 Store and happened upon this, I haven't really given it a listen yet but I figured the song titles alone were reason enough to point some baseball fans over there.

A Project...[UPDATE: Now with "Phat Beatz" X2]

This video has Blake Griffin, Blake Griffin getting in to a spat with the Bunsen Burners, and most importantly Blake Griffin dunking on the Bunsen Burners. The video is full of awesome.
