Re-read my post. I never "excluded" any years. I simply stated the trend of positive growth from 2001 to 2004. 2003 is an outlier, for whatever reason.
Exclude, give less weight too, call an outlier, whatever you get the picture.
It is an outlier. I acknowledged that. Are you just stupid?

I think "pulling the wool over peoples eyes" is a correct analogy for your exclusion of FRAR an FRAR2 in fielding stats(although I have not read your most recent post).
Do you know why I didn't use FRAR and FRAR2 in my analysis? BECAUSE THEY ARE ENTIRELY DEPENDENT ON THE POSITION THAT THEY PLAY! Here is the definition:
BaseballProspectus.com wrote:Fielding runs above replacement. A fielding statistic, where a replacement player is meant to be approximately equal to the lowest-ranking player at that position, fielding wise, in the majors. Average players at different positions have different FRAR values, which depend on the defensive value of the position; an average shortstop has more FRAR than an average left fielder.
Do you understand? Read the last sentence. Read it again. Do you get it? FRAR and FRAR2 cannot be used to compare a 3B and a SS. I don't know why this concept is so hard to grasp...

I already explained to you my reasoning behind this. I'm not going to explain myself again. Go and read it again.
Do you have the reading comprehension of a catchers mitt or something? This is getting monotonous. I'm getting tired of repeating myself over and over again. Please get it this time.
