Yeah, my statement is a bit of hyperbole. Nicholas Anelka and Diego Costa certainly had some moments for them (even though Costa was a crazy person too). But it's pretty amazing the amount of money they have spent on bust strikers in the last 20 years.
So do the BAbip numbers suggest he was unlucky in his first 5 games or lucky in his last 9 games, or both?
Pretty impressive that he's cut down on the walks though, as that's always seemed to be an Achilles Heal for him.
New to this site? You could probably find quotes in the archives from 20ish years ago replacing Fitzgerald's name with Morgan Burkhart's or Izzy Alcantara's. If SoSH had been around in the 1970s, we would have been hot for Sam Bowen. It's what we do!
I'm a total fair weather NBA fan and I had basically stopped paying attention after the poor start (doesn't help that they're not normally on TV here). So having a long playoff run to follow was totally unexpected and a lot of fun. Looking forward to more in the future.
Sorry, don't mean to call you out specifically, and I understand that people want to pile on SJH for his early panic, but a month into our team's recovery, it's just getting kind of repetitive and boring.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
