I would just like to issue your semi-regular reminder that pitching wins are a useless statistic. Baltimore Orioles pitcher Koji Uehara proved this once again tonight, by putting together the following line and still getting a win:
- 5 IP, 7 H, 7 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 2 HR
So remember, if you are having a baseball discussion with someone, and that person cites wins as evidence for a pitcher’s success or failure, tune him or her out.
On a significantly less cranky note, you absolutely need to familiarize yourself with Tweenbots and then watch the embedded video. Stuff like this (and Legos!) further reinforce my opinion that New York is the most vibrant, interesting, and imaginative city in the world. Enjoy.
