This happened: And then this happened: Baseball.
It’s been a long, hard season. If this season was a candy bar, it would be dark chocolate with a creamy torturous filling. And peanuts, it would have peanuts for some reason. In handing the Padres a 3-0 defeat today, the Giants are your official 2010 champs on the National League West. It wasn’t always pretty but the Giants made… Read more →

(Warning: Long post) (Edit: I’ve updated my data a little, instead of using my Giants projections from my 2009 Team WAR post, I decided to just run CHONE across the board for every team. Overall, this didn’t really change the rankings but I thought it would be fairer to do it this way.) Today we’ll be examining the National League… Read more →
