Baseball Digest Daily has this three part interview that I hadn’t noticed before. It’s a good read.

Blame Chad for creating this mess.

Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available in bookstores and online, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. You can also find Chad’s musings about the Cincinnati Reds in the pages of Cincinnati Magazine.

  1. Here’s one I’d like to see odds on – count 3-0, pitcher throws a fastball strike right down the middle of the plate. Batter takes. If you allow batter to swing at 3-0 pitch, as he will seldom get a better pitch to hit, isn’t there a greater likelihood of solid contact and more hits? If pitcher knows that batter is not taking on 3-0, doesn’t he have to pitch more carefully, increasing likelihood of a base on balls? Batters nearly always take on 3-0, leading me to believe there is good reasoning behind it, but I’d sure like to see the odds.
