KUOW today, PI article
Two quick things– unless the time changes again, I’m on KUOW today at 2:30 PM (Pacific) talking about the Mariners, BP, and other good stuff. If you’re a regular reader, I’ll be frank–probably nothing you haven’t read here.
Then, because this is a fairly important point, I screwed up in today’s PI column w/r/t the reference to Dobbs v Leone and the park factors involved. As I wrote in a comment thread:
“ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a fix submitted for the column, as that is obviously not as it should be. That should have been much, much clearer in what happened where, what the levels were, and how park-adjusted stats compared the two.
One of my largest problems writing these PI columns is that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m trying to strike this balance between technical but readable in a short form, and this is a case where I obviously errored in trying to shorten and simplify, to the point where the finished product is wrong. “
Sorry. I’ll be entirely frank here: this was a product of the amount of time and brain power I had available to devote to this, given my other crushing obligations, and other stuff I’m not going to get into.
I should have done better.
