I realize that I’d go to jail if I killed my parents, but do you think the judge would go easier on me if I told them I did it because they bought my three year-old son a drum set for Christmas?

Treder and Namee complete their exploration of the alternate universe no-Frazee Boston Red Sox. It’s worth noting that I just got my copy of SABR’s Baseball Research Journal, and the cover story by Dan Levitt, Mark Armour, and Matthew Levitt is an insanely detailed and insanely excellent historical analysis of what it was exactly that Harry Frazee did to the Sox, why, and whether he has gotten a bum rap for it over the years. If you’re not a SABR member you can order a copy of it here, but becoming a SABR member is not that expensive itself, and you all should do it so you can see good stuff like that and more. Plus, you can go to the SABR convention in Washington, D.C. next summer and tell Treder and Armour and Levitt and all of the others EXACTLY what you think of them.

Finally, over at Fantasy Focus, Paul Singman runs Connor Jackson through the Consistency Meter. Unfortunately, in a fit of pique, Singman turned the machine up to level 5, which rendered him mostly dead.
