USSM Year-end Best-of: August 2006

8-1 Dave evaluates Gil Meche’s season through July. Then on 8-9 he does a similar breakdown for Felix.

8-8 Dave’s random notes include a section titled “My mother could beat up Willie Bloomquist” on WFB’s isolated slugging of .032

8-11 Dave on Hargrove’s appalling ignorance of his own staff.

8-14 Dave’s great write-up of Byran LaHair

8-15 Catcher defense discussed in the context of Johjima v Rivera.

8-17 I make a joking but still-dangerous statistical case for Carl Everett’s veteran leadership.

And I go insane in the day’s Bloomquist-tastic game thread. You get the post and then nutty comments.

8-18 Then you get snakes on a team.

8-20 Dave finds good news even as the M’s got swept.

8-23 Dave tears apart Hargrove’s late game management.

8-24 In the day’s game thread, Dave talks about meeting Randy Johnson.

8-25 Dave’s writeup on Jeff Clement

8/26 game thread

David Wells famously claims to pitch while drunk. Gil Meche just pitches like he’s drunk, but we’re pretty sure he’s not.

David Wells is a strike throwing machine. Gil Meche wouldn’t even know how to turn on said machine.

8/27 Super-exciting dual post on Bob Finnigan’s retirement column.

8/29 Evaluating pitcher talent

    In the comments of the dual Finnigan post, I said Meche was going to get a crazy, three-year, $25M deal. Boy was I wrong!

    I’ve got a special request. I remember a thread where Washburn’s 2005 and 2006 were compared though roughly 150 innings….he had almost exactly similar numbers with the exception of his LOB and of course ERA. IIRC that it was at 150 innings, then that thread would’ve been during August (but I couldn’t find it). If it was an August thread, any chance it could be linked in this thread?

    It’s a September post. It’s coming.
