Some random early season stats

Poor Antonio Osuna. Last season he posted a 2.46 ERA by allowing 10 earned runs in 36 2/3 innings pitched. Well, if he wants to better that this year, he will have to pitch the next 38 innings straight scoreless. Antonio has given up 11 earned runs this year in just 2 1/3 innings.

I know I bash the heck out of Mr. Guzman, but seriously, does anyone know the record for most at-bats to END an inning in a season? It's getting a bit ridiculous.

Going into today's game, not a single player on the Nats has more walks than Ks. Now, very few players end up the season that way anyway, but you would think with a small sample size of 8 games, at least one player, even a bench player would have more BBs than Ks.

When an MLB game was last played in DC, the minimum salary was $12,500, the equivalent of about $51,000 today. It is now $316,000.

However, the minimum wage was $1.60/hr, worth $6.50 today. It is now only $5.15--shagging flies has definitely had a better 34 years than shilling fries. (Thank you, I'll be here all night) [Edit - SNV - ugh. How about throwing the leather has been better than mowing the heather?].

The average MLB salary was the equiv. of about $130,000 today. It is now $2.65 million.

The top salary (Yaz's) was the equiv of about $660,000. Pales in comparison to A-Rod's $25mil+

And finally, the MLB TV revenue was the equiv. of a little under $70 million. Not bad, but today it is $560 million.
