Someone asked a few weeks ago in a comment about how I find the statistics for Travis Minix way over in Taiwan for the Wayward Biscuits feature in the weekly stats graphic. I just saw the question tonight, so I thought I should make this a separate thread so maybe they'll see it.
Minix -- or should I say 米克? -- plays for the Macoto Cobras, whose Web site is www.macotocobras.com.tw, but here's Minix's player page there. He also has a page at the league's Web site.
Every time I decide to use Minix in the "system check," I have to put the statistics page abbreviations through a Google translation. (四死 comes out as "four dead," which I take to mean walk. If I'm wrong, someone let me know.)
I do the same thing with Jose Diaz in Japan, though the Yokohama BayStars' page will fully translate through Google. Diaz (ホセロ) translates into "hosero."
I think I knew about Diaz and Biscuits fan Brent Smeltzer knew about Minix heading overseas, but I may have players swapped.
If anyone's curious, Taiwan is 17 hours ahead of Central Daylight Time. Yokohama is 18 hours ahead.
