    Tony Gwynn could have ended his career 0 for 1,182 and still have a career .300 average. That stat is mind boggling to me! It was an honor to watch him hit. Gone way too soon. We miss you Tony.

    These two have the same amount of postseason wins without TB. 😉

    The top guy did it in 140 games.
    The bottom guy 35 games. 🏈

    Jim Brown played 9 seasons. he led the league in rushing in 8 of those. The one season he didnt, he had a wrist injury in the 4th game that affected the way he carried the ball. He still ended up with 1500 yards from scrimmage.

    Most stats aren't mind blowing, but the one I find most impressive has to do with Joe Dimaggio. We heard of Babe Ruth out homering every team in the league, and that is impressive.

    What a lot of people don't realize is that Joe Dimaggio played in the most difficult park in history for Right Handed batters and it really hid how good he was.

    Keep in mind that Dimaggio wasn't just a home run hitter, but.....

    In 1937 Joe Dimaggio hit 19 home runs at HOME in 306 at bats.

    Every other RH hitter in the league had 3,029 at bats IN YANKEE STADIUM that year.

    In those 3,029 at bats at Yankee stadium, they only hit 32 home runs.

    Joe Dimaggio is actually one of the most underrated players ever. In addition to his severed handicap as a right handed hitter in death valley, he also lost years to WWII.

    I had to look it up to remember how this worked. The only years the Patriots didn't go to the playoffs during his time were 2008 (only played in first game) and 2002 (his 2nd year as starter). So I couldn't remember how 2002 played out. For anyone interested, the Patriots finished their last game of the season still eligible for the playoffs, but later that day the Jets won giving them the edge and the playoff berth.

    Yup,I just double checked and NE had a 4pm game against Miami in week 17 which they won then once the game was over they lost out on the playoffs due to tiebreakers. Pretty crazy stat.

    Greg Maddux faced 20,421 batters during his time in the league. In those 20,421 at-bats, only 310 hitters saw a 3-0 count. Out of those 310, 3-0 counts, 177 of them were intentional walks.

    Bonds would be the obvious choice for most career walks against Maddux

    I must say that I put those numbers out here with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek. I know that Tommy was about as fleet of foot as a porcupine. I find it humorous that he played long enough to have his name on any rushing or receiving lists.

    I don’t know if this is truly amazing but it’s the first time I ever noticed it.

    Alex Ovechkin in a 4-1 loss to Toronto this week had more shots on goal (14), then his own goalie had saves (13).

    Washington outshot Toronto like 37 to 17 and lost 4-1.

    When else has a player ever had more shots on goal then his own goalie had saves ?

    He better not do sneaks, the last time he did his kneecap wound up on the side of his leg instead of the front which is normally where you prefer it to be. 😱

    Speaking of rushing I wonder what you guys think.
    In 1990 RC had more total yards then JM, more TDS and less INTs but JM won league MVP.

    Shouldn’t a QB get credit for his rushing and passing?

    If so, RC may have got shafted in the 1990 MVP race, even though both were great.

    This one gets brought up by Mark Gubicza roughly once a month on the Angels broadcast, always in the context of "he's due", which is hilarious to me because the at bat almost always ends in a strikeout. Lol

    Trouty, with 368 career homeruns, has only hit 2 career homeruns in the 7th inning or later that has flipped the score from the Angels trailing to the Angels leading. One in 2014 vs the White Sox and one in 2022 vs the Rangers. (Fact check, if you desire.) Think about that the next time you're watching highlights and you see some scrub you've never heard of coming through late in the game with the big homerun that turns a loss into a win.

    Good ole Trouty!
    I credit him for applying for permanent membership to the injured reserve list.
    He is tired of letting fans down so his solution….. just stop playing.

    since he's in the news, Dusty Baker (in the postseason) left a SP in the game long enough to allow 5 or more runs 19 times in 94 games.

    I don’t know if this is truly amazing but it’s the first time I ever noticed it.

    Alex Ovechkin in a 4-1 loss to Toronto this week had more shots on goal (14), then his own goalie had saves (13).

    Washington outshot Toronto like 37 to 17 and lost 4-1.

    When else has a player ever had more shots on goal then his own goalie had saves ?

    Probably not too many times in a game where the goalie plays all 60.
