For all of you stat junkies that are so high and mighty piling on. consider that the whole concept of normalization is completely bogus and as much as it attempts to brings eras together it actually makes them more diverse due to the problems of WhatIfs normalization rules.
Consider that BA, SP, ERA, WHIP are normalized. But what about HR, SB, IP, SO, etc? Maybe some of them are now, but since I have a year ago due to these discrepancies I wouldn't know and apologize if things have changed. The fact is if you don't normalize every stat, then normalizing any is stupid.
This creates a whole can of worms that would make the real life stats of players virtually worthless. If the 21 Ruth is truly normalized properly for HRs it would blow his stats out of the water and make the whole concept ridiculous. It also really plays into what many die hards of the site hate, ratings for each stat. But lets be honest, with normalization, every stat that is normalized is truly converted to a rating. After all, you don't really know what the true stat is. You only know the original stat and a "factor". Yippee!!
Maybe the site is better than it used to be when Silver King or Tony Phillips or Allie Reynolds or Willie Wilson dominated WS titles but it doesn't mean that the site is good when Brett Butler's are winning MVPs, as was the case in my last league.
BTW - I'm sure this will insight a great deal of criticism. As Jesus once said - "Bring it on"
