The Hardball Times is one of my favorite baseball-related infranort sites. Great writing, great analysis, fun for the whole sabermetrically-inclined family.
So imagine my surprise when I awoke to find dozens of emails sending me to this boner
from John Brattain, in the article towards the bottom about the Jays' woes:...guys like Thomas and Wells have yet to really get on track. Wells has been a tease and Thomas’ OBP is blunted by the fact he clogs the bases.
THT...talking about Frank Thomas...clogging the bases.
Has the world gone mad?
Flags at half mast, boys.
