First, I wanted to share something I discovered recently. I hope everyone knows what “Gameday” is on MLB.COM. Well, right now it is going through beta-testing for the 2009 season, and I came across how to access it. Take the following link:
… and substitute the following:
## = the month (03, right now)
** = the day (two-digit)
^^^ = the visiting team’s MLB abbreviation (look to the front page scoreboard for the abbreviation, some aren’t what you’d expect)
&&& = the home team’s MLB abbbreviation
It is a little dodgy right now, but it works alright. The one problem is that it doesn’t get pitch counts right for individual batters; it just shows three strikes for a K, four balls for a BB and one pitch for a Ball put in play. But better than nothing. (Hat Tip to user CCTwinsFan over on Twinkie Town)
Second, I have recently started up a new online project. It is a book review site, and I hope to add other reviewers to it as time goes by. It is located here: http://letbooksreadyou.wordpress.com. There is only one review up at the moment, but I hope to get two more up in the next 24 hours.
Check it out!
Thanks for humoring my occasional silence, all.
