This stereoview, "Leaping to Stand Rock" aka "Leaping the Chasm", was created in 1886 by H. H. Bennett in the Wisconsin Dells. The subject is his son, Ashley, who made the jump (and the return jump, which Bennett also photographed) safely. In fact, a number of Bennett's children made the leap (or perhaps they laid a ladder across, who knows), and had a picnic on Stand Rock. All these images can be seen at the Wisconsin Historical Society website http://tiny.cc/gv81g

Brad Hawpe: a RF/1B I could love, released by Rockies.

Here's a guy with a very good career OBP .374, throws well, lefty, has some pop in a down year; not a great outfielder, not real fast.  He's only 31 and could snap back, in the absence of some...

watch this video of Willie Mays and pay attention to his hitting mechanics and his swing and followthrough, where he puts the bat head on the ground (not his batting practice swing). Then go back and watch Juan Uribe's HR swing last night. I'm not saying Uribe is Mays. I 'm just saying I was struck by the great similarity. I knew Uribe's swing reminded me of someone, but it wasn't until last night that I realized who it was.

Calling out Bruce Bochy: Baseball cube rates Posey faster than Whiteside

Well, Mr. Bochy, you put in Eli Whiteside as a pinch runner for Buster Posey, saying after the game that Whiteside was more likely to score on a gapper, and that you also considered having...

Would/Should the Giants trade Pablo Sandoval?

You never want to trade the face of your franchise. Is Pablo that face? But you have to give value to get value. The Giants need a slugging first baseman, Dunn or Fielder.  Either one could shift...

ProTip: Aaron, look for the dot on those sliders.

Mr. Rowand, I sympathize. Pitch recognition is one of the toughest skills to master in all of sports. If I could have done it better, my life would be different. I admire that you have come so far...

New stat: Shutdowns and Meltdowns

I don't know if this has been posted before. This new stat is coming out of The Book blog, tangotiger et al. The idea is to provide a more meaningful approach to saves and holds. Details at FanGraphs. A meltdown is defined as equal to or less than -0.06 WPA and a shutdown is equal to or more than +0.06 WPA.

Has Mark DeRosa always had that hitch in his swing? VIDEO

Frankly, I didn't think Mark DeRosa was gonna work out, but I didn't think he'd be this bad. I figured he was on the downside, and he's a utility man, not really a corner outfielder. But he was...
