The Morning Edition (May 30, 2013)

From Last Night:

  • Baltimore’s 6 run 7th tops Zimmerman’s 3 HR night
  • The Mets beat the Yanks with 5 in the first, but Nova delivers an immaculate inning
  • Navarro homers 3 times as the Cubs beat the White Sox

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Felix goes at Petco (330p Eastern)
  • Moore faces the Marlins (7p Eastern)
  • Michael Wacha makes his MLB debut for the Cards

The Big Question:

  • Has the Cardinals draft team been tested for PEDs?

I spend some time checking into various baserunning numbers and threw several tweets out regarding those numbers (you can read them if you look to the right of this page) and I made this handy graph comparing how often a team scores from second base on a single:

second to home on a single

 

You can see 60% is about average and the Mets lead the way with 79%, but look at those Astros. My, my those Astros. 39%.
