The Mockingbird

Best Eye or Most Patient

with 4 comments

It would be kinda sneaky to just pretend this was another intro to an local article, but no…a click below will send you over to Baseball Digest Daily, where you can see my latest foray into the realm of pitch f/x nerdiness. It’s a little like my previous look at who swings at the most pitches out of the zone but makes a lot more sense this time, really. While you’re there, sign up for the email updates. I’m not just plugging them because they let me on the site…BDD quite often beats the big boys to the punch with quick little recaps on breaking baseball news, trades, etc.

  1. “Jonathan Hale is an editor and an English major who transforms into a stats geek whenever he starts talking about baseball. He tries to keep it to a dull roar but the fact that you can learn more about the game using numbers secretly thrills him to no end.

    Jonathan lives in Toronto and has always been a Blue Jays fan, although he considers himself a baseball fan first. He blogs about the Jays at The Mockingbird, and writes for MVN at the Jays Nest.

    In his spare time, he is a very good poker player and a very poor middle reliever. He comes out of the bullpen throwing chin music and an uncontrollable slider, and has never hit a home run despite playing baseball for two decades.”

    I’ve heard he also drowns a bag of kittens every time the Jays finish in 3rd place.

  2. You know I should have just rolled with that one. I was kinda trying to take a shot at Dave who was all about being the biggest Jays fan and authority ever yadda yadda.

  3. Do softball, or RBI Baseball homers count?

  4. I actually hit an inside-the-infield grand slam on a bunt in an all-star game once.
