kind of interesting to me. kept baseball stats you may not know (anyway I didn't know until recently)

for batters:

SLG - slugging % - no. of total bases divided by no. of at bats - you probably know that one
OBP - on base % - times on base divided by plate appearances
OPS - the sum of a players' on base % and slugging average
OPS+ - takes a player's on-base plus slugging percentage and normalizes the number across the entire league. It accounts for external factors like ballparks. It then adjusts so a score of 100 is league average, and 150 is 50 percent better than the league average.
TB - is the number of bases a player has gained with hits. It is a weighted sum for which the weight value is 1 for a single, 2 for a double, 3 for a triple and 4 for a home run.
GDP - double plays grounded into
SH - sacrifice hits (bunts)
SF - sacrifice flies
IBB - intentional base on balls


for pitchers:

ERA - everybody knows that one - earned run average
ERA+ - ERA adjusted to consider the players' ballpark
BK - balks
WHIP - walks and hits per innings pitched
WP - wild pitches
FIP - fielding independent pitching - Fielding Independent Pitching converts a pitcher's three true outcomes into an earned run average-like number. The formula is ...........(13*HR+3*(HBP+BB)-2*K)/IP, plus a constant (usually around 3.2) to put it on the same scale as earned run average. to be honest I don't quite get this one
So/W - strikeouts divided by walks

Darren Sproles - you don't hear the media sing his song much
but what a ballplayer this little guy is - only 5'6"

He joined the New Orleans Saints in free agency before the 2011 season, and broke the NFL record for most single-season all-purpose yardage the same year, with 2,696 yards. Sproles is the first player in NFL history with 2,200+ all purpose yards in 4 different seasons (2008Ė2011). Sproles is currently ranked 8th in career all-purpose yards in NFL history (19,020 yards).

35 year old now and still going.

Sproles is one of my favorite players but I didn't realize he was that high on the list.

My GOAT fantasy team name is The Glory Sproles.

pretty surprising. the Seahawks have signed linebacker Mychal Kendricks who has pleaded guilty to insider trading and is facing prison time.

pretty cool. never seen this before. a 𝒇𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒇𝒂𝒊𝒓 𝒄𝒂𝒕𝒄𝒉 trick play run back for a touchdown by North Texas. His body language said fair catch. But he never actually made the signal. so he could legally run it back.

I thought the Floyd/manny 2 talk was smoke but it seems like it might happen.

Could be the first time I've ever bet against Floyd. He hasn't fought a professional opponent on years, while Manny still looks pretty solid.

I think I am turning into a conspiracy theorist. If Floyd loses it would guarantee a rematch which would be another huge paycheck. Bet Manny.
