so right now they're talking about the Base Rate statistic (OPS minus Batting Average, if i recall correctly) and blithering dunderheads joe magraine and harold "i love me some white girls" reynolds are just not getting it
it's really rather simple
the leaders in base rate last year: albert pujols, prince fielder, adrian gonzalez.
the worst: jason kendall, david eckstien, some other worthless assholes
the former players hate the sabermetrics because (and i quote) "its always the LIGHT HITTING MIDDLE INFIELDERS that get squeezed"
so basically, any stat that says guys that are good at baseball are in fact good at baseball, and say that guys who aren't good at baseball are not good at baseball, are bad stats and should be "done away with"
i know i can't be the only one that sees something wrong here
