ever the quantifiers, the sabrmetricians over at fungoes have encapsulated last night's head-hunting war in a beanball intentionality matrix. . . . danupbaby rates the dustup not in terms of intention but attention -- ie, the amounts we waste on these so-called confrontations. "At least in hockey the fights involve fighting," he writes; "in baseball they involve the manager and his nondescript relief pitcher being thrown out." . . . there's love for grudstein at today, more for matty mo at i say what i mean, and words of encouragement for larry walker at the diaspora. at the birdwatch, josh looks back at an ex-card ss with a story sadder than edgar's. finally, the nilly was in the house again last night and files this report.
