Hey 269!

Kaz Ishii became the Biggio plunker with the highest ratio of the letter i to total letters in his last name, at about the same time Peter Gammons was finishing his remarks at the Hall of Fame Induction. Maybe they should have more of these induction ceremony things. It seems to have a positive impact on Biggio's plunk stats - then again, I might be thinking like Wade Boggs after listening to the story of why he started eating chicken every day after feeling like he hit slightly better on days when he ate chicken. That superstitious nut.

Now if you ask me, and plenty folks do now and again, ain’t no better way to pass the time of day then pouring over Baseball statistics. It sharpens the mind, improves the ability to forecast possibilities for numerical permutations, and increases the range of topics one can discuss while interacting socially. I reckon anyone who is not devoting a substantial amount of time each day to looking at the agate type in newspapers (or little grids of numbers on a computer screen) and boning up on the latest changes in Baseball statistics is inevitably devoting that same block of time to something else… and the options ain’t necessarily wholesome. What with ultra-violent video games, Japanese animated pornography, readily available hallucinogenics, seductive religious cults, and the allure of petty crime, I suggest to trickman01 that this here pursuit of all statistical knowledge interwoven in the quest to bruise Craig “Target” Biggio in to the record books is a whole lot healthier a pursuit than much of what is on offer out there.

So, pbr, you go ahead on and devote just as much time as you like to crunching these odd and interesting numbers and you keep on presenting them to us in any style you see fit because if you don’t then a passel of us out here might could get sucked in by one of them seductive religious cults, or commence to experimenting with them readily available hallucinogenics, or commence to committing petty crimes.. You are doing society a favor by giving us all more reason to stay out of jail, stay off the streets, and keep our collective mind engaged in the mental gymnastics needed to cipher out some of the numeric conundrums you put forth.

Ok, I appreciate the effort of the Plunk Biggio Reporter and in fact would not visit this site daily if I didn't. I don't read walls of text but I'm pretty sure I read the words trickman01 and crime therefore I assume you are calling me a criminal, that's not cool. I did not say too much time as you may have interperated I said " a lot of time" not too much there is a difference and if you wanna read once in a while you would know that. I will also have you know that Biggio is my favorite player all time, followed by Jeter then Bagwell. I have seen Biggio hit a homerun, as well as Bagwell, Soriano, Ensberg (Walk-off). I have crunched more numbers than you know. I know that Bagwell has 449 HR biggio has been HBP 269 times, and that you called me a criminal. I'm sorry but that just keeps popping in my head, please do not respond since I have started rambling and I appoligize to the PlunkBiggio Reporter if I offended him. But not to Cletus
