Awesome link.

Really liked Sean Ingle's piece about the value of possession in soccer: "goals predict changes in possession much better than possession predicts changes in goals." (Also contains nice Indiana Jones metaphor for tiki-taka gone bad.)

One more link: know who is #5 in Fangraphs' list of hitters who have outperformed their expectations so far this year? Mike Trout. " . . . having received the highest projected WAR figures from both Steamer and ZiPS before the season, Trout has somehow managed to exceed expectations."

Ever wonder how the Pontiac Silverdome is doing these days? Not great is the answer.
