Chart of the day

I don’t watch baseball at all anymore.  I used to love it, but when my childhood favorite Baltimore Orioles were recently in the ALCS, I realized I could not even name a single player on their roster.  That said, I did find this chart of runs scored per inning to be really interesting as well as the discussion about the changing use of relief pitchers that helps explain it.
