    They're winning because:
    a) when the situation presents itself, runs are being driven home.
    b) when the offense gets a lead, the pitchers are holding onto that lead, at least for the next inning.
    c) they're doing A and B more often than their opponents...

    Well - that, and they're holding the other team to less runs than they're scoring.

    That seals it. He is a FA this year and he has to come here for no other reason than this tweet.

    And his wife is smoking hot. A threesome with her and a very mediocre chick would still be the greatest day ever.

    I don't even know if I can get on his case about not hustling, that might legitimately be as fast as he can run.

    What a slug.

    A 50yd. dash between him and Posada would be real interesting.

    Yeah just a good positioning and great instincts by Beltran. Josh was acutally running out of the box and the play wasn't particularly close.

    They originally expected it to happen in 6 days, but they found out Nunez was playing.

    Re: Interesting Baseball News Items That Do Not Warrant Their Own Thread

    Kevin Gregg released today. Apparently he was one of the secrets as to how Baltimore kept their pitching staff fairly fresh. Looks like he was the official pitcher of "garbage time" for them.

    The Orioles have scored 623 runs this year, while allowing 643. Baseball teams that score fewer runs than their opponents are supposed to be losing teams. According to the Pythagorean record-projection system, the bedrock tool of objective baseball analysis, a team with Baltimore's scoring profile ought to be 69-74. Instead, the Orioles are beating their Pythagorean projection by 12 games. They are 27-7 in one-run games, which simply doesn't happen. They are 13-2 in extra innings. Backup catcher Taylor Teagarden is batting .133 and has only six hits all year—five for extra bases, and three of them game-breakers.
    The sabermetric term of art for the quality that allows a team to overachieve this way is "luck."
    That was the end of Gregg as a conventionally valuable relief pitcher. It was a week before manager Buck Showalter would pitch him again—to handle the eighth inning in Toronto with the Orioles trailing 6-0. One meaningless, harmless inning.
    From that day, May 28, through his release, Gregg pitched in 29 games. In those games, the Orioles had a record of 6-23.
    It's not that Gregg was that bad. He just pitched in bad games. Pythagoras, meet Hippocrates: Given a $5 million pitcher who'd failed under pressure, Showalter decided to first make sure he could do no harm. So Gregg became the proprietor of garbage time. He entered games down six runs, down five, down eight, down nine. Much more rarely, he would come into a blowout that the Orioles were winning.
