wtf is he doing? It wasn't meant to be with Lannan. Detwiler will have to clinch playoff spot tomorrow.
Doubleheaders are almost always a split so this isn't a shock.
In a paper in American Statistician, Michael Goodman makes the claim that doubleheaders are swept more often than they are split. The Elias Sports Bureau, however, found that doubleheaders are swept only 26.2% of the time.
What are the actual stats on this? All I could find quickly:
It's also disclaimed as "dubious", and "citation needed".This is not reliable either but it appears someone researched a number of years and found > 50% are swept, which is what you'd expect unless the teams were evenly matched, which is almost never.https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/rec.sport.baseball/FUEVGEbH0Hw
I don't buy that at all. Most are splits, by a lot.
