Do you know the meaning of "at the most"? You did not say he'd "probably" get fewer than 20 saves, you did not say you "don't expect" him to get 20 saves or more, you did not say it was "a longshot" that he got 20 saves or more. You said, "at the most 20 saves". How about you actually look at what you wrote before you claim you're being misrepresented?
Once again you're trying to distort the facts of the situation by selectively leaving out a lot of the facts. You said, "You claimed that it was not even imaginable that Morrow would get more than 20 saves going forward." You are addressing only 1 of my posts with that statement while conviently ignoring all my other posts. I'm sure the reason you did that was because if you factor in my other posts you'd have no choice but to admit you are wrong for making such a claim. The alternative to you selectively rewriting history is that you failed to read my other posts, including those before the post you're selectively addressing, and are reposnding without first finding out all the facts of what I said. If you look at my posts collectively there's no reasonable way to conclude the meaning of what I said is what you say it is. I had used the word "probably" in a post prior to the post giving numbers and factoring in the context of that prior post the logical conclusion is that when I said at most 20 I was giving my best guess within the context of "probably." So yes you are putting words in my mouth.jackie hayes wrote:Second, on the statistics, I actually know statistics very well, thank you
You certainly haven't said much to demonstrate that. You honestly think 40% is not enough of a sample size to produce any probablities? Wow, I'm stuned. So all the predictions experts are making for the rest of the season, for all sorts of things, are meaningless? I suppose you think there's still a good possiblity Seattle could still face Washington in the world series this year?jackie hayes wrote:But cut out this personal insult crap..........you're just stupid
Funny how you want to b1tch about something then go and do it yourself. Furthermore you're accusing me of something I didn't even do, while doing it yourself. I went back and quickly scanned my posts replying to you and all I noticed that I said that could remotely be considered personal was you lacked an understanting of statistics. You weren't saying anything to suggest otherwise and it's hardly anything like calling your mama fat or anything remotely close to that, which is what a normal person thinks of as a personal attack. BTW, the only "evidence" you've supplied are based on significantly smaller sample sizes (20 something games) then I've used.
Holy crap -- that is all such a load of bs. I'm only going to respond to the last part. The "you're just stupid" is OBVIOUSLY not directed at you. I'm stunned that you would even try such a hack job on my quote to convince people that I said anything even remotely close to that.
Anyone reading this, read my actual posts to see what I said, not this laughable copy/paste garbage. bill, I don't deal with out-and-out liars. I'm done with you.
