Let's start a little project here. We have a few hitters (Soriano and Ramirez come to mind) that like to appreciate their work at the plate a little more than some might appreciate.
So let's start a thread here (I'll keep a link to it available as much as I can, so that it doesn't get lost - if you need a link to it later, just ask me) to keep track of just how often Cubs players sit there and admire a hit that isn't a home run. Then at the end of the season, we can take a look at how often it happens, and what the "cost" is to the team in runs/wins/etc.
I'll start us off, with an example of how to specify it:
04/11/2008 @ Philadelphia - Aramis Ramirez gazes at a fly ball in the ninth inning; ends up with a double to deep center off So Taguchi
Your participation in this project is greatly appreciated, and you have my thanks in advance. Have I missed any plays so far this season?
