Draft day

Posted at 10:11 AM on June 2, 2006 by Ben Tesch (1 Comments)

Apparently one of the great sports non-events, the amateur baseball draft is on Tuesday. Let's just hope either MLB or ESPN doesn't try to turn this kind of thing into a spectacle like the NFL draft, where some Mel Kiper baseball spinoff touts the intangibles of people you have never heard of and will never hear of again.

Winning weather

Posted at 1:27 PM on June 2, 2006 by Ben Tesch

The Weather Channel has some interesting baseball related tools I ran across recently. Not only can you see what the weather will be like for all the day's games, but you can also see how your team has fared under different weather conditions. The graphs are misleading (it looks like they're better at night, but it's just total wins, and since they play more at night, every team's graph looks the same) but there's still some interesting info in there... somewhere.
