Baseball statistics are wonderful, again!  The last post was about the National League.  So today I put together a view of the Color of American League Batting Statistics 2010.  This is a view of 2010 AL batting averages made into color, by taking the games, hits, and average and making them HEX. (teams orders by name, left to right)

Baseball statistics are wonderful.  So many numbers to look at and figure out how to make them sing. This is a the Color of National League Batting Statistics 2010. A view of data made by taking the games, hits, and average and making them a HEX color valiue. (teams orders by name starting with Atlanta on the left)

I am trying to see if there is logic or not in this, between the red and blue.  Not sure but it is fun to examine.

I had an accident.  As I was cleaning up and all was dry, I noticed what I thought was an interesting view.  Once outlined, it looked to be like a set of islands off Indonesia, the Philippines, or Greece.  When I asked my wife, all I got was “a coffee stain” and I replied “Where is you imagination?!”

sometimes when I am bored at a meeting or when I feel a bit self-sadistic, I will attempt to cover a piece of paper with squares.  The goal is to draw squares in nice neat lines.  When you tire with a line pick a different one.  In the end if every square was perfect the sheet would be nice and orderly.  But as a human is drawing it, chaos ensues. There is the rule that if a gap appears between two rows wide enough for another square, a new line may grow between the two lines.

Another PI theme field of color.  I like this version better than the previous “dots” field of PI digits.  Plus this one was not as tedious to create.  Again the randomness of PI appears to have some order to it visually but the mind can never see it and keeps searching.  I love it!

Here is a map to every ending to Choose Your Own Adventure: Cave Of Time (book #1).
I have read many of these books and never understood how I always reached the same small set of endings when many more exist.  With this map I can read every story and reach every ending.  Each node represents a page.  Blue nodes are normal pages; Red nodes are endings; Green nodes are pictures.
