Specially tailored for Bronx Banter, dig this awesomeness from our man Craig Robinson:
flip flop fly ball
Wow, that's cool, thank you Craig!
A couple of odd facts show up here, I thought. One is how clueless we are about how to find WAR for a relief pitcher -- BR and BP are miles apart on it. The other was Mariano's BABIP-against from season to season: it fluctuates like crazy. Even the most consistent pitcher in the history of baseball doesn't have a consistent BABIP-against. Can't predict baseball.
The Mike Stanley / JR Murphy thing at the end is as mind-blowing as any of the numbers.
I was at the game Mo flied out to center against the Braves.
I just love looking at his numbers as Craig's laid them out here.
Interesting that FIP and xFIP misses something about Mo since they are always higher than his ERA.
 Yeah, Craig did a great job here!
