Phillies Blogathon: Hour 40

The Phillies' record broken down by runs scored and runs allowed.

Phillies Blogathon: Hour 40

The Phillies had more wins this year when they scored exactly three runs (18) than any other number they hung on the board. They were 90-23 when they scored three runs or more, 72-13 when they crossed the plate four or more times.

Conversely (and expectedly), most of their wins (21) came when their opponent failed to score. They were 61-9 when they held clubs to less than three runs, 79-15 when they held them to less than four.

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
