But who's counting?
- There was a thought provoking piece in The New Yorker by Adrian Cardenas, a former Cubs prospect who quit baseball last year at the age of 24, which proposed some takes on the sport that most of us probably haven't thought about.
- Hardball Times took a look at pitches seen by hitters, and questioned whether offensive performance improves on each additional pitch seen; and if repeat views of types of pitches help a batter.
- There's a FanPost up by Robert Cochrane, who went with his dad, who has Parkinson's Disease, to all 30 ballparks in 2004, filmed in a documentary. They're currently raising money for round two of the tour, and are seeking your help.
- Entirely not baseball related, but the New Orleans Pelicans mascot will give you nightmares. Happy Halloween.
