If you're watching the Rangers/A's game right now, you know that if the sun isn't factored into defensive stats in that park, the defensive stats are bullshit. The sun is brutal today and the Rangers have misplayed three fly balls in this inning alone because of it.
no. this is the basic of defensive metrics. the managers moving outfielders into blinding sun.
its the latest offensive ploy. the hidden defensive metrics trick. did U look under the mound, too?
its all managers. kirk gibson-mvp-curse. he moves an outfielder so that bad_luck doesnt steal his mvp. kirk gibson is shrewd, and the hidden numbers will prove it, as it has defensive metrics, not pitchers, getting credit for making batters go 0-7...
same carnival ride, but he's the light-bulb tester.
i do like the idea of pitching-in, to get those numbers, so the thread can be treated with dynamite. if that is cool?
