okay you stats gurus, here's a question on the A-rod thing. If he hits his 500th tonight, he'll be the youngest to do so. What day will they consider for determining his age on this? Today or last Wednesday?

Sigh. Each hitter hit all three of his respective home runs off the same pitcher, although they accomplished this feat against different pitchers.

Bench hit 3 off Carlton; Cepeda hit 3 off Hands.

Better?

This is post #755 of this thread. Does that make me the Hank Aaron of off-topic baseball threads? If so, what does that make Dan, who made post #756? And was Bud watching while Dan typed out his post?

This whole thread should have an asterisk next to it.

Last Wednesday. That homerun would be his 500th if he hits one in the suspended game tonight, according to Elias.

Of course, if he hits two homeruns in the suspended game tonight, we gots ourselves a whole 'nother matter.

Elias is wierd.

A-Rod hit his 499th homerun on Wednesday of this week. The Yankees are finishing a game tonight with Baltimore that was suspended from last June 28. If he homers in the suspended game tonight, will that be his 500th. homerun? Or his 499th.?
It'll be counted towards the day on which the game was started.

Let's say A-Rod punches out Giambi in the dugout (I dunno, could happen...), and gets suspended 5 games, starting immediately (7/27). Are you saying he could still play in the makeup, because the makeup is actually being played before the suspension takes effect?

I guess Bud would hafta decide what is considered a performance?
I'm pretty sure "performances" here refers to statistics.

Heard an interesting stat during the Sox/Rays game last night. Sox drew a bases loaded walk to score a run and Jerry Remy said that the Sox lead the league in runs scored via bases on balls, with 16. I think they got another bases loaded walk later in the game. That's a lot of walks to draw with the bases loaded.

Sox are back up by 9 games. It's nice to be in Tampa.

I'm usually just a lurker on this thread, but I have a real, bona fide baseball question. I watched the last four innings of the Seattle-Oakland game today (slept through the first five) and in the 6th inning the first base ump ended up tossing the first base player, Sexton, I think? They replayed everything from several different angles, and the announcers couldn't see any reason for the player being tossed, but I'm not sure how good they are at understanding officials. Did anyone see it? Could anyone explain to to me from the official's point of view?
