Concluding thoughts

Sorry, no thoughts on the numbers tonight. I’ve been a bit under the weather lately, and I need to get back to bed. I do hope this helps to satisfy you guys a little bit. If not, you can look forward to tomorrow or Tuesday when I’ll post the top 25 best and worst pitchers for LIPS ERA and DIPS WHIP. I’ll also be posting about Ryan Braun, as well as another post on trade strategy, within the next couple of days.
