Every week in baseball there are always some weird things that happen. Whether it is a position player pitching (Jesus Sucre was the best by far) or a player having some unfortunate luck at the plate; it is guaranteed that something interesting or weird is going to happen.
In part, it’s what makes baseball fun and exciting. Even though they have been playing the game for 130+ years, there still seems to be events every year that happen for the first time. We aren’t going to see them every week, but we are going to see some wild and weird things happen.
With that, I have decided to analyze what happens each week and report the findings of my research. For my new series here on Sodo Mojo, I will be giving a few weird facts or stats that I have found from the past week of Mariner baseball. Fortunately with “Chaos Ball”, I’m sure to find some interesting statistics and facts each week. This week’s focus was on some of the newcomers: Robbie Ray, Jesse Winker, and Eugenio Suarez.
