You are blocking the author of this post, lad_buck.
the math, of all the words in the english language, times the amount of the total keys on your keyboard, times all the strokes used to re-create the alphabetical roster of every word possible. the simple equation, translated, adds up to your deliberate and vain argumentative nature. an impossible answer to that equation?
will contend again for further lack of idiotic dissection of a difference of .003 one thousandth of a point that seperates mattingly from above average and great. not needing a taco recipe to agree with u about your use of the word great, let me instead propose the simplicity of odds that do not benefit in minute, inky-dinky variances in numbers. thats like focusing on what an ear hair in nolan ryans left ear does when that nasty speedy curveball does not get hit by a right-hander for a month straight. u are looking in the wrong place. and your microscope doesnt work well either.
the notion of numbers and value in baseball, is when a right-handed batter prevails, 30 days later. that is big. not little. exploiting the big is exampled in odds, like the odds of 8 no-hitters. the odds of weekend home games swept by visiting teams. these contain big odds. whether for or against, picking winning ballplayers and picking winning teams increases odds, as if henderson is a choice in cf, then choosing 2 cf's doubles your risk of choosing wrong. but, in baseball, the odds also increase if your numbers go over the total runs, or under. thats big. thats value.
exploit it. arrive in vegas early sunday morning. notice 2 home teams on the board who could be swept. big odds say that wont happen. the bets get better looking, studying the essential numbers. great cy young contenders dueling ea. other in three other games. the odds of me hitting any state lottery wherein 5 numbers are involved is in the millions. in vegas, on that morning, u can walk up to a window and bet the under in those potential three pitching matchups, go with the home team twice, even as possible underdogs getting swept, u just hit 5 numbers. your one thousand dollar bet has a pay-out of $18.67 per $1 bet. exploit the big odds. your mess of numbers remains unexploitable. it produces nothing that mirrors value. in short, 350% investment return. and those wonderful buffets.
