The NL West: Time Zones, Ballparks, and Social Investing

My latest FanGraphs post is here. I talk about the National League West, which I view as the most idiosyncratic division in baseball, due to three factors:

  1. Four of the five teams in the Pacific time zone and the fifth in the Mountain zone, resulting in more games played late for those of us in the Eastern and Central zones than in any other division
  2. The most eccentric mix of extreme hitters' parks and extreme pitchers' parks in baseball
  3. The decision by two teams (the Diamondbacks and Rockies) to pursue specific character types, which I liken to social investing
Some of my FanGraphs posts get pretty numbers-heavy. This one isn't.
