Things to Read That Might Not Suck: It Was Just One Game Edition

Posted By on Tue, Apr 7, 2009 at 11:45 AM


If you can see straight during your hangover, check this stuff out.

FanGraphs now has a live Twitter feed for every team. Two versions available:

There are two types of feeds for each team. The full version, and the lite version. The full version is every single play and the lite version is end of inning plays, significant score changes, and any play that changes the win probability more than 10%. I suspect the full feed will have about 70-100 updates a game, while the lite version will have 20-30 a game.

Consider these feeds in beta! I have tested them a bunch of times this off-season, but there still might be some issues. I’ll definitely take suggestions on these feeds but remember there’s a 140 character limit on tweets.

Example Tweet: 2-9, 0 % to Win, Top 9, 3 Outs, ___, Jay Payton flied out to second .

Here's the Indians full feed. (FanGraphs)

— If you didn't read Scene's liveblogging of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, you might have missed my random thoughts about watching Danny Ferry introduce himself to Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Strange moment.

— More fantastic stuff from Let's Go Tribe. Online extras on amateur and international drafting, free downloads of a portion of the Indians Annual from Maple Street Press. Just go get it now. (Let's Go Tribe)
