A fan of the Yankees, Red Sox, and large sample sizes.
Some quick DIPS trivia:
Whos' played the best defense so far in baseball, in terms of turning balls in play into outs?
Oakland, by a landslide. Their $H is .239. The number two team, Minnesota, is at .261. I guess Chris Singleton actually is helping the team in some way.
Which league has the lower $H?
Neither, both the AL and NL are turning 71.27% of balls in play into outs. Considering the AL has to deal with the DH, I find that interesting. I'll have to take a look at the past few years' values.
Who are the bottom five teams at turning balls in play into outs?
NY Yankees - but Jeter's back to save the day...
Florida - fast doesn't equal range, evidently...
Colorado - i'll forgive them, though...
Milwaukee - at least they can pitch and hit; oh wait...
Texas - and for Exhibit A in favor of park effects we have Chan Ho Park...
