Home Run Trot

Trot Nixon's extra-inning homer has propelled me to the internet in search of MBTA schedules, as the combination of the Red Sox win, a fortunate starting time, and a very generous Dad will put me seven rows from the field for Game 4 this afternoon. If you saw the post-game interview, Trot spent a lot of time telling us how he had asked his Savior for calmness at the plate, and how He had delivered. I'm hoping that this morning he's asking Him how to hit lefties.

I'm going back to doing BAP the old way, more numbers and less analysis, so I don't fall so far behind that I'm finishing the World Series around the same time as the Winter Meetings. The three games here will bring us right up to yesterday morning.


Yankees 4 Twins 1

OBP - Min .200, NY .343
SLG - Min .219, NY .300
OPS - Min .419, NY .643
BAP - Min .371, NY .667
EBs - Min 3, NY 11
BA - Min .125, NY .267
SecA - Min .188, NY .167
BA+SecA - Min .313, NY .434

Every stat gets it right except for Secondary Average.


Marlins 4 Giants 3

OBP - SF .404, FL .319
SLG - SF .302, FL 350
OPS - SF .706, FL .669
BAP - SF .630, FL .542
EBs - SF 12, FL 5
BA - SF .279, FL .200
SecA - SF .233, FL .325
BA+SecA - SF .512, FL .525

Slugging, Secondary Average, and Secondary Average Plus batting Average get it right. The first loss for BAP, as the giants leave people on base all day, and the Marlins get two on the game's only homer.


Cubs 3 Braves 1

OBP - Atl .206, Chi .286
SLG - Atl .107, Chi .273
OPS - Atl .313, Chi .559
BAP - Atl .294, Chi .486
EBs - Atl 2, Chi 6
BA - Atl .071, Chi .242
SecA - Atl .214, Chi .091
BA+SecA - Atl .285, Chi .333

Every stat except for Secondary Average gets it right.

The Standings:

BAP 9-1
OBP 8-2
OPS 8-2
BA 8-2
SLG 8-2
BA+SecA 8-2
SecA 5-5

The race tightens in the middle. SecA falls off of the pack, but we never expected it to do much on it's own. The big surprise is Batting Average, the old reliable coming through. BAP maintains it's one-game lead.
