BDD: Randy Johnson a LOOGY?

Posted By Bill Baer On June 27, 2008 @ 6:36 pm In Baseball Daily Digest | 5 Comments

No, get your mind out of the gutter. I’m not talking about spit; I’m talking about turning Randy Johnson into a lefty-specialist relief pitcher.

You know what else I’m talking about? Whether or not the Phillies are better off without Aaron Rowand.

Hey, guess what else I will shamelessly self-promote? My thoughts on starter Jamie Moyer.

I haven’t been putting much up here because the Phillies’ recent tailspin has me in a funk as well. After the three-game series in Texas, I’ll analyze just how damaging the month of June was for the Phils. Hint: It wasn’t pretty.

While I’m thinking of it, I’d like to take advantage of my platform here and pimp Bridging the Statistical Gap, written by Eric Seidman of FanGraphs, The Hardball Times, Baseball Prospectus, and MVN. If you’re thinking about delving into the world of Sabermetrics, Eric’s book is a great place to start, and it’s a good reference tool for those who have already taken the dive.

Elsewhere, Chase Utley was on a podcast recently for EAS.com. If you’re into health and fitness, Utley offers up his approach. I believe I’m beyond repair, but for those of you who can walk from your doorstep to your mailbox without getting winded, check it out.
