lad_buck, at the risk of having you create a new screen name to heckle me (jack_mountain?) your posts would be more effective if you wrote in complete sentences and used a capital letter once in a while. I agree with some of your points but it's difficult to read. If you are trying to hide who you really are with that style I suppose it's working but it's irritating.
For those who completely disregard and badmouth sabermetrics and the new stats, let me know how the next flat earth meeting goes. Most MLB teams are using them extensively, regardless of what ESPN and the rest of the media does. Some of the stats are more effective than others, and they all need to be used in context. Some people do use them too much or the wrong way to try to make a point and/or bore people to death so I understand the backlash. However, you can still be a true baseball fan and love watching the game while still appreciating the new stuff. It does not have to be an either/or thing but it's human nature to turn debates into just that.
Serious implications... U witness heckling, & risk jack-mountain's appearance
as a part of what ???... Is there a modus operandi
(M.O.), of repeated instances,
of this where U R here to help 'heckling" be more effective ???...
U've opened a door, but it implies that usernames are not the real issue that is
related to the topic of the thread... What irritates U can be remedied, by buying
a discount fly-swatter... If sticks & stones break bones, then this thread ain't 4U,
as names ain't supposed 2 hurt U... R U a kindergarten graduate, or not ???...
Your numbers are a fad, come-&-go, just like the GWRBI... Eddie Murray, 4 the
short time that stat existed, was the king, as a switch-hitter... So what if the stat
proved the the whole nerd-nation wrong...
The designated runner, and MLB experimented, but could not sign Carl Lewis,
or any Willie May's Hay's types, & the nerds lost it totally, as far as any credibility
or ability to predict an event... Have a few more beers... The 5th inning is next...
Eye witnessed someone in that college class make an astute point... Same 1...
The very same bell curve that was the measure, & so necessary 2 the equation,
of Bill Jame's abstract stuff, because the bell curve was not meant as a 'predict'
tool... His equated predictions, are the death-knell of a mathematician...
The bell-curve works here in ALL games on this web-site, simplified 2 resemble
a dollar bill, lite as paper, & heavy as coin... Linear weights MUST stand-up 2 very
certain mathematical proving grounds of validation...
Number fads... Crystal balls... The designated hitter was first brought to MLB, by
number nerds during the BlackSox scandal... A way 2 shave those overwhelming
odds when Ruth batted, & other teams could not counter... Number geeks, for 100
years, always trying 2 change baseball...
Seems it would be a different stage to perform on, if bad-luck wasn't self-flattered
as the poster-child and spokesperson on behalf of ******* WAR !!!...
