The task here is to dig deep into 118 Chicago White Sox seasons, assign a managerial WAR (let’s label it mWAR) for every season, in order to determine the best and worst managers in team history. How do you do that? Well, one method is to use pythagorean records (the number of wins a team should have based on run...

Dingerthread: 2018 MLB Home Run Derby

No White Sox clubbers, and just one AL participant, try to put some dents in seats at Nationals Park Weird lack of balance for the Home Run Derby, which gets underway at 7 p.m. CST: OK, so sure, the Derby is a goofy thing to begin with, but still, there’s no balance in representation between leagues (just one AL batter, Alex Bregman), and there are two Cubs.

It’s some kind of Statcast jive, I...
