Reader Email: Math Nerd Spends Hours Statistically Proving Derek Jeter’s Final Moment At Yankee Stadium Was Rigged

The dude even left a bibliography.

 

 
Reader Email: Jeter’s Rigged Final Moment

I just spent hours, calculating why Jeter’s hit last night was staged. Enjoy.

Now calculating Even Meek’s pitching in the last 7 months:

Avg Speed Delta of Mean Variance (Theta^2)
90.1 -1.357 1.841 Mean: 91.457
90.2 -1.257 1.580 Variance: 1.272
90.6 -0.857 0.734 Std Dev: 2.984
92.1 0.643 0.413
91.6 0.143 0.020
92.2 0.743 0.551
93.4 1.943 3.770
91.457 8.909

Variance: 8.909 / 7 = 1.272

Standard Deviation = Sq. Rt of 8.909 = 2.984

91.457(Average FB) – 86.1(Jeter FB) = 5.357mph

5.357mph (Delta of Avg FB and Jeter FBs) / 2.984 (Std. Dev) = 1.795 Standard Deviations from the mean

1.8 Std Deviations = .96407 %

1 – .96407 = .03593% Chance

Jeter’s BA: .255 Std. Deviation %: .03593

.255 (Jetere BA) = 1 in 3.921 .03593 (FB @ 86.1 mph %) = 1 in 27.831

Chances of Derek Jeter Getting a hit on a 86.1 mph Fastball from Evan Meek: 1/109.12 chance

Derek Jeter had a 0.9 % Chance of doing that naturally last night

 
 
 

Booyah! Stats and facts don’t lie. I 100% only understand about 20% of the numbers provided, but I’m going to assume they hold water. The dude provided a bibliography for fuck’s sake. You don’t mess with the level of nerd that would actually cite sources in a Reader Email to Barstool.

Now that being said, was it really rigged by the Orioles? No. Jeter still had to come through. Fellow baseball losers historians like myself would point to Mickey Mantle’s second to last HR when he was told, out of respect, a fastball was coming right down the pike. The Mick, once he finally believed the catcher wasn’t yanking his crank, still had to hit it out of the park. It obviously looks fishy when the pitcher throws a meatball ready to be cooked, but props to Jeter for capitalizing on the situation. Even though 99.999999% of Major Leaguers would crush it towards South America. #RE2ECT

 
 

PS – Additional Jeter stats/hatred provided by the emailer. Love it.
 
Great in the 90′s, above avg in the early 00′s, average end of 00′s, worst player in baseball since 2010… the stats say it all. I fucking hate Yankee Fanboys.

Close and late game situations for Derek Jeter all time in the playoffs – CAPTAIN CLUTCH? More like Mr. Hopefully Make Some Contact.

7in or later: Leading by 1, tied, or have the tie run in the on deck circle:

I Know It’s Only Preseason, But the Flyers PP Made it Move Last Night

At one point in the first period they were 3/3 on the power play and I'd just like to put out a fair warning to the rest of the NHL right now.

In case you were too busy watching Thursday Night Football or Jeter’s last game at Yankee Stadium or anything else, the Flyers beat the Devils 4-0 last night in a little preseason action. At one point in the first period they were 3/3 on the power play and I’d just like to put out a fair warning to the rest of the NHL right now. Unless you hate your life and want to be miserable, don’t take a penalty against the Flyers this year. I mean that was one of the prettier displays of passing I’ve seen in a while. Did those two cross ice passes maybe benefit a little from the Devils’ PK being in preseason form? Eh, sure. But that was slick puck movement nonetheless. I had to watch it a couple times through just because it was so hot, but each time you watch it you can pick up on something new. Like Laughton diving down toward the net after he gives the puck to Schenn just draws all of the attention onto him once MacDonald gets the puck. That’s where you see Bryce Salvador, who mind you is the captain of the Devils so he’s not just some punk bitch prospect, on the back side and have to turn away from Schenn to try to cover Laughton. And then as soon as Schenn sees the back of Salvador’s helmet, that’s when he floats up above the goal line and gets himself open for MacDonald. It’s a thing of beauty, really. And those are the small things you want to see done right regardless of if it’s preseason or not. Same thing goes for this Gostisbehere that came later in the first period.

Tic-Tac-Toe just like you read about. And hopefully once the regular season starts up and the guys build a little more chemistry with each other Akeson won’t Nancy that pass over the Ghost or whoever else is over there. So I don’t want to make a huge deal out of the preseason power play work, but all I’m saying is that I’d much rather see them having some success now than no success at all. Plus, the Flyers were a Top 10 team on both ends of the special teams last season so I’m sure going 3/5 on the PP and 5/5 on the PK last night was no fluke.

I Guess It’ll Be Good For The Courts This Vehicle Had A Dashcam Running

Dude attacks the car like he's straight out of 28 Days Later.

Assuming they have a judicial system over there. Which is a big assumption. But insurance fraud is the real reason people in other countries are attaching dashcams to their vehicles, and for all the right reasons. Dude attacks the car like he’s straight out of 28 Days Later. Personally I would’ve gotten my money’s worth and ran him over. Twice.

OJ Mayo Legitimately May Be Kidnapped And Enslaved After A Crazed Fan Left This On His Reddit AMA

"I don't want to suck your dick, I want to suck your soul."

via OJ’s Reddit AMA/NIP

NOPE.

Hey, I don’t care if this is a troll job for kicks. When somebody whips out the line “I don’t want to suck your dick, I want to suck your soul.”, you get concerned. Real concerned. The fucking in the heart is just the cherry on the top of this sundae of creep. OJ Mayo might want to create an alias journeyman his way right into the Euro leagues for a little bit until the FBI can locate OverEmotionalCavsFan’s current location. Or maybe go back to USC and relive his glory years again. Nobody ever seems to come out of that fantasy land and live up to their hype.

READ THE ORIGINAL BLOG ON THE VICTORA ROSE FUND AND BABY CHARLOTTE HERE

DONATE TO THE VICTORIA ROSE FUND TO BENEFIT BABY CHARLOTTE HERE

 

The power of the Stoolies compel you!

See this…THIS is what makes me proud to be apart of Barstool. We’re all degenerates but we come together when it counts. The blog was posted for a mere 2 hours before the goal of $10,000 was met…and it’s still rising. Unbelievable. We’ll be sure to give updates of Victoria and Charlotte throughout their respective fights, but this truly a blessing. Victoria, her family and little Charlotte’s family are all extremely grateful for your support.

Thanks to everyone who donated. I don’t like to single anyone out because anyone kind to give deserves credit because no amount is too little. However, somebody track down Spencer Mullet and buy him a beer or have him email into Phillytips@barstoolsports.com. And yes, I pray that’s his real name.

This Guy Giving His Dog An Exorcism Needs A Good Old Fashion Soul Cleanse Via Asswhooping

Can we storm the streets to beat the living piss out of this guy?

 
Can we storm the streets to beat the living piss out of this guy? Cause I’m ready break out the pitchforks and torches. This is unacceptable. No fucking shit a pup acts aggressively when you torture and choke the poor thing for a minute straight. Any “Demon” in a dog can be driven away by a Milk Bone or well-timed belly rub. If not, then it’s probably Rabies. Cujo don’t lie.
