FWIW, SAAP is a decent stat. It's no shocker that a player who hits .300 with 23 homers is more valuable than a player who hits .237 with 9 homers. SAAP, as I think it should be called, simply tries to quantify how much better. But it discounts some of the things the old-timers hold dear(W, RBI, RS) because they aren't "individual" stats. Which isn't the worst thing on earth but the SAAP disciples openly mock those stats. So there's more pushback to SAAP than there should be.
