Since about 1976 the areal extent of sea-ice in the Northern Hemisphere has varied about a constant climatological level but in 1972-1975, sea-ice extent was significantly less - IPCC 1990 assessment, Page 224.
Rough debut for Pagán? That's a really high bar...I thought he looked great.
Hmm. He gave up a bomb and didn't K a single batter. I guess you thought his "spin rate" and other stuff was incredible.
I'm not saying he was trash, but he was hardly good.
He's going to give up home runs. His fastball usage (especially up) in the zone leads to a lot of flyballs. He gave up 12 home runs last year in 70 innings, so expect solo shots. He also threw 13 pitches, 12 for strikes and was sitting 96.
