Beware the Fox

It’s here! Firefox 1.0 is out. Are you using Firefox yet? Well, if not, or if you just want to update to 1.0, then you can download it here or from FeFNet or a myriad of other websites out there. The moral of the story is you should be using a browser that’s not Internet Explorer. Wonder why? That’s another post in itself, but I’ll just warn you that Internet Explorer is full of security holes, especially if you haven’t updated to Windows XP Service Pack 2. Don’t know what that is? Confused by everything I’m typing? Leave a comment and we’ll get back to you.

To Pitch or Not to Pitch

From ESPN:

ESPN.com: Page 2 – Talkin’ some baseball
The Giants have scored 600 of their 787 runs in innings when Bonds steps to the plate.

When he walks, the Giants average 1.09 runs per inning. When he doesn’t walk, the Giants average 0.95 runs per inning.

And when he’s intentionally walked, the Giants average 1.25 runs per inning.

Based on that, it’s clear to me that teams should pitch to Bonds more often.
