    That graphic of the AL East standings was all jacked up…Yanks and Orioles are both 6-4 w/ different win percentages? Toronto is 6-6 but their % isn’t .500? Someone needs to be canned b/c a trained horned toad could do better.

    Craig – one point of contention with the comments of Mr. Schur in your interview. He stated I believe that the Red Sox were basically a .500 team in 2004 well into May and June. I beg to differ on May 1, 2004 the Red Sox were 15-8 on May 15th the Red Sox were 22-15 on June 1st the Red Sox were 31-21 on June 15th the Red Sox were 37-26 and finally on June 30th the Red Sox were 42-34. Not what I or most fans would consider basically a .500 team well into May and June of 2004. Just pointing it out in the interest of accuracy.

      But, if the Red Sox were 7 games over .500 on May 1st and were then 8 games over .500 at the end of June, the Sox were basically a .500 team for the months of May and June, notwithstanding their April record.

      In 2004 they had a fantastic April and a fantastic August-September, but they were .500 for THREE months in between. It looked like they were just a product of a fluky terrific start and were basically an average team, but then they turned it off again and never looked back. (Well, aside from a 3-game stretch in the ALCS.)

      That’s probably what Schur meant, as it’s a pretty commonly known statistic.

      Gentlemen, your replies would make all the sense in the world if not for his comment “well into May and June”. That leads me to believe that he was referring to the Red Sox play starting the beginning of the season and continuing trough those periods. I may be wrong it certainly wouldn’t be the first time. But that is the way it sounded and the only way it makes sense to me. If he wanted to say or even just imply May and or June he should have said “during”. Obviously gentlemen your interpretation is different.

      • Ari Collins - Apr 14, 2011 at 3:32 PM

        No one’s interpreting it. We’re saying that’s what he meant. Clearly he misspoke, and what he said is obviously wrong. But considering how well-known this statistic is and how close what he said was to what many people have said in the past, the three months of .500 ball is no doubt what he was attempting to refer to.

        So yeah. Just a verbal typo, and let’s move on.

    Two questions for you, Craig,

    1.) What did you do with Tiffany?
    2.) When are you going to interview Mrs. MadDog?

    Craig I love your work been reading for a long time. I almost never comment, but may I ask that you guys please stop playing music while your interviewing someone . It’s very distracting and annoying.
