A Very Bad Year

Joe Poznanski looked back over the last 80 years to find the best vintage year for baseball players being born.  In 1931, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Ernie Banks, Eddie Mathews, Ken Boyer, and Jim Bunning were all born.  This he graded an A+; the best year ever.

My year, 1961, had Don Mattingly, Andres Galaraga, John Kruk, Jimmy Key, and Kevin Gross as its five best players.  Kevin Gross.  He graded this year an F+; tied with 1932 as the worst ever.

This is why I do marketing research, math, statistics, and write a blog instead of play baseball for a living.

Write a blog when I don't have a smashed thumb.

It's healing.  I'll be back soon.
