Excerpt:

HBT: The Rays’ David Price won the AL Cy Young Award by the slimmest of margins Wednesday. He received 14 of 28 first-place votes and finished with 153 points to 149 for the Tigers’ Justin Verlander, chosen first on 13 ballots.   Other than a 1969 tie, it was the tightest race in the history of the AL award. HBT: Marlins are a kleptocracy, not a team HBT: Marlins send stars to Jays in megatrade HBT: Hunter signs with Tigers for 2 years, $26M Affeldt, Giants complete $18 million, 3-year deal Melvin will welcome back Colon to A’s HBT: A’s Melvin AL Manager of the year HBT: Nats’ Johnson NL Manager of the year PHT: Wayne Gretzky’s prediction for the return of NHL hockey almost sounds like an injury report. He thinks a deal will be reached in 4-6 weeks.

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
