I just now finished up my two-week project (which took thirteen days longer than I’d expected) of creating pages for ejections and suspensions for the SP78 season, if anyone would like to take a look. Both links can be found in the ‘Statistics’ dropdown list on the main page.
Part of the reason for this prolonged period of stat work were the numerous fixes I had to make to April and May stats, where I had to go back and credit a dozen or so players with pinch-hitting appearances, when batters would get ejected in the middle of an at-bat. This is of course was a stat I failed to recognize during my early, innocent years of Statis Pro, so both scoresheets and blog pages had to be updated and synchronized.
Mostly, though, it was just the sheer number of ejections I had to deal with that turned this into another gargantuan SP78 task. I couldn’t believe how many players had been thrown out of games so far this season, and I think you’ll be surprised by the current count as well. My question is, what’s everybody got to be so angry about, and why is everyone trying to cheat?
And yes, I’m looking at you, Bob Boone and Gene Tenace.
