The case for spell check in Major League Baseball

The Dwindy Report...

...otherwise known as the overall standings in the chase for the coveted Triple Lug Nut trophy.

Straight from the spread sheet:

dwindy 7 0 19 7 10

cr 3 0 12 10 3

Hanny 2 0 13 10 3

kristen 1 1 8 8 4

Tez 1 0 9 7 1

SB 1 0 7 12 8

moseby 1 0 7 7 4

jon 1 0 3 6 8

There are 14 races left in the Trifecta season, so it's still anybody's game. Dwindy's strength lies not in the number of wins he has racked up- which is impressive- but rather in his total domination of the statistics. Should the Chase for the Coveted Triple Lug Nut Trophy come down to a tie breaker, Dwindy has the upper hand. The only current exception to that would be Kristen. Should she and Dwindy be tied for wins at the end of the season, her perfect score trumps his domination of the statistics.

More Numbers!

So who’s gettin’ it done in the Cup Series through 20 races?

Some different measures...
