Personally, I like stats, and I'm sure a lot of us do too considering we're doing fantasy baseball. I also think your comment was pretty out of line. I recommend you cut down on the caps, and consider being "QUITE" yourself.


The rift between "statheads" and "baseball fans" shall neve cease but, secretly, I believe they both envy eachother. Personally I'm a baseball fan who is intrigued by the 'natural' statistical laws that baseball seems to follow and the pursuit to define it's reality. But sometimes it just goes to far. I guess just like a loud annoying baseball fan can get to anyone else.


interesting post. ;-D

Hm, I kind of liked the A's by default, and then respected them more because of Billy Beane.

Im not the type to predict based on stats, but I am the type to analyze past performance based on stats.

I always liked the A's but rooted for SF (NL fan grew up going to Chi and SF games) in the earthquake WS. Those Split A's/Giants hats, shirts, ect. were great. I love what the A's have done with thier baseball team and obviously am disguested by the Yankees.

Tell me Harden is a Jake Peavy and will kill this year, no IL of course. I don't want to wait untill he is 26-27.

I decided to do a calculation of Park Adjusted Runs Saved by each pitcher (IE the amount of runs a pitcher saved, park adjusted, in any given season) with a baseline of 200 IP/Season.

Clemens per 32 starts has a PARS of 22.84.

Pedro per 32 starts has a PARS of 27.48.

Now, this is a fairly new method that hasn't been entirely approved. But its calculations do make sense.

Come on now, 200 IP that seems rediculous to judge the best upon. Like 0-60 vs. the 1/4 mile.


What do you mean? I'm not following you... the 200 IP baseline means that in their case, the average pitcher pitches roughly 200 innings in those seasons (which I think is quite high, actually.)

Maybe you're interpreting the stat incorrectly.
