Quick Hits

The first two items are courtesy of Joe Posnanski:

  • In 1985, this is what Dwight Gooden did in four of his starts: 7 innings, two runs; 8 innings, 2 runs; 7 innings, 3 runs; and 6 innings, 2 runs. Those are his four losses. ("He also had two nine inning, 0 run no-decisions.")
  • Vida Blue had his huge year at age 21. In that season, between April 13 and July 21, Blue started 22 games and threw 196 2/3 innings. Yikes.
Also, here's an excellent article about a former Mets prospect, written by some guy named Plimpton. It's nice to see this online.
