End-of-Term Catch Up: Why I hate Brian O'Nora

Well, first there was this game, which the play-by-play doesn't note that Brian O'Nora blew the call on the Luis Rivas home run. It was a foul ball.

Then, just recently, he gave the Dodgers' the edge on calling strikes out of zone, as this wonderful graph from Brooks Baseball shows. (Click on it to make it bigger.)

Plus, he called Pudge out at home.

He hates the franchise, so I hate him.

Please forgive the off-topic comment, but I don't see any contact information anywhere on the site, so this seems to be the only way I can contact you.

I'm a community host for TBD, a yet-to-be-launched website that'll cover local news and sports in DC, and I've been reaching out to Nationals bloggers over the past week. We're creating a network of bloggers that we think will be mutually beneficial -- we'll direct traffic to you via links on our site (but won't steal your content), and we'll also help sell ads for your blog so the majority of the money goes to you. That's the short, confusing version, but I can explain more.

Please e-mail me at dvictor@tbd.com so I can give you a better explanation. As a bit of a stathead myself, I'm going to make it somewhat of a personal quest to get you involved. I'd love to be able to feature links to your posts right alongside the standard game recaps, hopefully exposing this side of the game to a wider audience.

Thanks for hearing me out, and I hope to hear from you soon.
