The infamous Black Hole statistic, as researched and coined by Beerleaguer regular contributor George S., was featured on Tuesday's broadcast of Daily News Live.
The stat, which illustrates in shocking detail the Phillies inability to produce runs and win games with David Bell and Mike Lieberthal hitting back-to-back in the lineup, was passed along via e-mail to columnist Bill Conlin.
Conlin passed along the data to host Michael Barkann and the show opened its Phillies segment with an overlay of George's findings. Barkann called the numbers "incredible" or "astonishing," or something like that.

Excellent work, George!
