Chart explanation

If you stayed around long enough you got to watch Anthony Gose’s first MLB hit, so that’s nice.

  1. And with it being a crappy day game, I miss Gose’s first start….. Joy!

  2. fucking yankees.

  3. I guess it was a hit…. that’s not exactly the kind of first hit you tell your grandkids about.

    • It seemed to be an intentional slap-bunt/hit; like he was trying to put it between pitcher and Jeter. It looked too ugly to be a real bunt attempt.

  4. How abysmal to have bunted in the highest leverage hitting situation.

  5. For the sake of accuracy, this graph should have started at 0%
