BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Biggest day in strat, the day the defensive ratings come out. With implications for strat players everywhere, and one of the most argued aspects of the game, I am surprised that BP doesn't even mention it. How can you love sabremetrics and not play strat?
(LindInMoskva from DC)
Ah, those were the days, when I was in a face-to-face league. I sort of blew an invitation from a great group of guys to participate in their league in 2008, but part of the problem to my way of thinking is that I hate auto-managers of any stripe--I miss rolling the dice, dealing with an opponent directly, and adapting tactics to circumstance. The idiosyncrasies of how Strat integrates so many factors in their defensive ratings was always delightful and exasperating, all at once. I remember one replay league we did with the 1978 card set, making our first 10 or 15 picks *without seeing the cards*, as if we were GMs of the period, using just the simple stats available to us. (This was in 1991 or '92, pre-internet.) Naturally, I wasn't happy to discover Craig Reynolds was a 4e33 at short, so that part of my mast plan wasn't going to turn out well. And the guy who picked Leon Roberts definitely didn't like what came out of the wrapping. Fun stuff. (Christina Kahrl)
