A lot of the new baseball metrics are overcomplicated garbage
Most probably don't even understand baseball. Plenty of HBD players are clueless to actual baseball but they can work numbers.
I'm a stat guy and I've created a reasonably simple, but all inclusive stat that bases itself around what players do/produce and can control, so H, TB, SB, CS, BB, HBP, and K...yes it's a solely offensive analysis but I would argue more/as solid as anything out there currently...everything isn't a regressive this that or the other.
