Bit and pieces, Nov. 13

♦  Rob Neyer is evidently not finished with naming things. He continues on the concept here.

♦  This year’s Tigers-Giants World Series was the lowest rated ever for TV. How to fix the situation. Perhaps.

♦  Speaking of TV, The Hardball Times compiled this list of  “must-see MLB.TV” that was derived “by combining the average swing in Win Expectancy per inning (times nine innings) plus the average leverage index of each play. By combining action (swings in WPA) with intensity (average leverage index), we were able to identify the games that are most likely to keep you on the edge of your seat this offseason.”

Of course, this only applies if you’re a subscriber to MLB.TV. If you have the MLB.com At-Bat app, you can watch highlights of any game. I recently relived Johan Santana’s no hitter. Pretty cool.

♦   Also pretty cool: Robinson Cano becomes a U.S. citizen. because you can put citizenship papers on a bookshelf.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
