1997 MLB Expansion Draft logo.
Another visual representation of a game. This time, an animated version of last Thursday’s Rays-Nationals game.
My friend Pete (who runs the excellent nocoastoffense site) mentioned that it might be interesting to animate it, so the game “plays” graphically.
To make it easier to see the progression through the game, I dimmed the colours on the team that aren’t batting during each half-inning.

Yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ about.
Visiting Toronto after nine months in Mexico; nine months away from a store that sells New Era caps: this is what I spend my first Canadian dollars on.
Manny Ramirez and his brief time with the Rays
In an article on FanGraphs, Jonah Keri mentioned that Manny played for the Tampa Bay Rays for “about 10 minutes.” I figured it’d be easy enough to come up with a more accurate number, so spent a couple of hours watching his at-bats on the MLB.tv archives. And I cobbled together a chart.
