Blog Kiosk: 4/12/2013

Here's a nice little pic made by the @Dodgers on twitter.
  • Hilarious!  Well, maybe not so hilarious.  The day before the now infamous brawl at Petco yesterday, David Temple at FanGraphs penned a piece beseeching Carlos Quentin to learn to get out of inside pitches.
  • Dave Cameron at FanGraphs also takes an analytical look at the pitch that cause all the fuss yesterday.
For the record, last night’s pitch from Greinke was plotted at -1.504, so it is just barely outside of that sample area. It was certainly inside and off the plate, but most batters would not have been hit by that pitch.
“Like an idiot, I’m playing him back at third base again the fifth time up. He dropped another bunt down and beat it out,” said Miggins. It was a lesson learned for the young infielder. “I gave him two hits that day and he never bunted again on me because I played him even with the bag from then on.”
