J.T. Jordan (Triplesalley) is majoring in Psychology and minoring in Religious Studies at the University of California at Davis.  He is a die-hard Giants fan, and has been following the organization religiously since 2003.  The Giants won their last World Championship a good 34 years before he was born, and he hopes to see them win one during his lifetime.  You can also find some of his work at The Hardball Times.

Dylan (TheGig) is a business major while minoring in statistics at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He is a huge sports fan (baseball, football, basketball and hockey), but a Giants fan first since he was a little kid. JT introduced him to sabermetrics a few years back, which he is extremely thankful for and has led to the formation of this blog.

    I just wanted to drop a note to let you know how much I have enjoyed this blog this season. I have nothing to add to the discussion but I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your posts here and since it has been a regular on my Giants blog reading list (McCovey Chron, El Lefty, Bay City Ball , Raising Cain and Triples Alley) during my free time ( unusually small this season) this summer I have not been disappointed by a single post and ussaly end up enlightened in at least some small way. Thank you your efforts and generosity.

    Hey, Mr. Triples Alley,

    I love your blog, even if I don’t necessarily understand all of the math, but I appreciate how accessible you make this complicated stuff. My buddy and I recently started a podcast about the Giants and our fanboy love for them, and we’d love to have you as a guest.

    Would you be interested at all? Feel free to check us out at, or look up Two Guys, a Glove and a Coke Bottle on iTunes.

    Shoot me an email at, and we can talk. Keep up the good work!

    Mr. Triples Alley,
    I just stumbled upon your blog today, and I’m entranced already! Awesome stuff. I’m a relative newb to sabermetrics, and I had a question for you. With ESTRP, have you ever found it to be way off with a team? Typically I’m finding only a 5% margin of error, which is great, but sometimes I’m missing the boat and seeing a much bigger (15-20%) margin. What stats should I key in on, or what explanation could you offer as to why I’m seeing such a huge deviation?

    Thank you!
