Q: Why does Nook Logan persist on trying to bat from the left side? It occurs to me that with his average so much higher from the right, he would have a greater probability of reaching first by batting right.\
I do not buy this argument that he is closer to first from the left. With his speed, it should not matter. It certainly does not seem to bother Ryan Zimmerman when he beats out infield hits from the right side. If I have a better chance of getting on base by batting right, why would I bat left? It makes no sense.\

Q: Why couldn’t Saturday night’s game (played in a downpour) have just been suspended with two outs in the top of the ninth and resumed Sunday afternoon? I thought baseball changed the rules this year to allow for situations like that.\
