Envisioning a bold new National League

"There could be a thriving and astonishingly popular National League. The problem is, the three potential flagship teams—the Mets, the Cubs and the Dodgers—are all a mess right now. And baseball should be doing everything in its power to get those three clubs to thrive, be productive, to win and have star power."

In a great article in Hardball Times annual, Greg looks at the batted balls at the new Yankee Stadium and Citi. The interesting finding is that while Yankee Stadium turns long flyballs into HR, it also turns almost-long flyballs into outs. Citi field however turns almost-long flyballs into hits. So, this would be an example of where the HR park factor and the Runs park factor on non-HR are not directly related (either unrelated, or inversely-related).

Piazza-pudge-bench_war

My most recent offering at The Hardball Times takes a look at the career values of Mike Piazza (all hit), Ivan Rodriguez (all field), and Johnny Bench (a lot of each) -- good idea, Dan. To give away the punchline in the incessant Piazza vs. Bench debate, Piazza leads in career hitting RAA by 158 runs and Bench leads in career catcher defense RAA by 158 runs. All three have remarkably similar Hall of Fame cases based on Sean Smith's WAR calculations.
