May 12, 2017: Stupid Internal Clock

I'm off for two weeks while writing this show. No matter what time I go to sleep, I'm getting up between 5:30 and 6:30. Which is particularly odd since I never HAVE to be up in that window.

  1. I don't even care if this doesn't hold up:

    1. The franchise record for RBIs in a season is 140 by Killebrew in 1969, which was the year he also hit a franchise-record 49 home runs for the second time.

  2. I read this in Posnanski (who was quoting Gleeman), updated through last night:
    2017 Twins: 17-14 (May 11th)
    2016 Twins: 17-40 (June 7th)

  3. The jalapeno requested some help this morning with a rather unusual sports-themed t-shirt:

    'Spoiler' SelectShow

        Kid: [smiles broadly]

  4. Hey, Effectively Wild answered one of my questions on Wednesday. I'm practically famous!

    1. I heard the name and wondered if it was the right Beau. Not that I remember which question it was now.

      1. How high of a percentage of all plate appearances would have to end in a three true outcome before you guys would see the game as broken?

  5. 2017 AL Leaderboard, Sano Edition:

    BA: 12th (.304)
    OBP: 1st (.441)
    SLG: 4th (.667)
    OPS: 2nd (1.108)
    OPS+: 2nd (.205)
    WAR: 10th (1.8)
    Offensive WAR: 2nd (2.0)
    Runs: 3rd (24)
    RBI: 2nd (29)
