"All I need to know can be found in a boxscore.  **** watching a game!!!"
Sure, that's not a straw man.

People love baseball stats because they love watching baseball. Knowing things like, well, I don't know, maybe that Bernie Williams was no where near the offensive player that Edgar Martinez was, enhances the experience.

Edgar Martinez was a very good hitter.

Bernie Williams was a very good baseball player.

Notice the difference between those two statements?

Do you go out of your way to be an *******?

Sure. Martinez's position closes the gap significantly between the two. I was just making fun of mike because he once said that they were essentially the same offensive player.

An ******* post gets an ******* response.


"WAAAAAAA I don't understand stats. I'll belittle the people that do in order to mask my ignorance."

Why can't you answer a simple question?

Do you not understand it?

Do you go out of your way to be an *******?

2/14/2013 4:26 PM
Can you not read? I gave you an ******* response to your post on purpose.

BTW, HAHAHAHAHHA!!!!  "I UNDERSTAND ADVANCED METRICS!!!   YOU OBVIOUSLY DON'T BECAUSE YOU DON'T ACCEPT THEM TO BE THE HOLY TRUTH!!!!!"

********.  Do everyone a favor and hang yourself with a noose made of FIP.   Because strikeouts, walks and homers are all baseball really is.

It's a simple yes/no question.

Once again, you must not be able to read. Since you need it spelled out for you, yes, in this case, I went out of my way to be an *******.

Nah, I just think the world would be a better place if you weren't in it.   And, knowing your love for advanced metrics like FIP, it seems like that would be a nice way for you to take yourself out.
2/14/2013 4:39 PM
FIP? When did we start talking about FIP?
2/14/2013 6:13 PM
Right before you got banned as jrdx and started posting under BL.

And I'm waiting on a "Thank you" for looking out for your best interests.

Hate to burst your bubble, but that isn't me.
