For those interested, I wrote a guest article for the Baseball Analysts blog run by Rich Lederer and Bryan Smith, with the topic being King Felix. It’s probably nothing new to you guys, but you might enjoy it anyways. And if you don’t, well, it’s free, so don’t complain.

Also, for the three of you that can’t get enough of my writing, I’ve got an article in the Hardball Times 2006 Annual, which I’ve been told will begin shipping next week. The THT annual contains a bunch of statistics and data that you simply cannot get anywhere else, such as hit type data and some interesting analysis that they’ve done off the information collected by Baseball Info Solutions. Plus, you get to read my article. So it obviously gets my totally unobjective recommendation.

    Dave – What’s the topic for the Hardball Times book?

    They asked me to write an article on the minor leagues. I ended up doing a piece on the players who took The Leap this year, what we might be able to learn from players who have taken massive steps forward at the minor league level, and a look ahead at who some candidates might be to take The Leap next year.

    Bat-Girl wrote something for a stathead book? May wonders never cease 🙂

    Great article, Dave. What a fun and hopeful piece to read.

    One trivial question… are you sure that you are thinking of Roger Rabbit and not Bugs Bunny? I can’t swear that Roger didn’t have a similiar cartoon, but Bugs certainly did.

    Aww, crap, you’re right, it is Bugs. I got my crazy cartoon hares mixed up.

    that article brightened up an otherwise horrible day.

    I hate to say this, Dave, but the “Bugs Bunny” changeup analogy is mentioned all the time, on-air, by Rizzs, about Moyer’s change. That scares me.

    Thankyou Dave, That was a fun light hearted article to read.

    It appeared that along with that other worldly pitching talent King Felix has the look of a Gold Glove fielder.

    Pet peeve: the word is “anyway,” not “anyways.”

    Nice summary on El Rey, Dave, with plenty of verve. Let’s the rest know what they were missing. They’ll learn . . .

    Remember when Boston seemed to grind to a halt every five days for Pedro Payday? As a fan, it’s a great feeling.
