Reminds me of a classic Onion headline (accompanied by a picture of Wes Welker): "Fan Favorite White".
Any thoughts on who will end up in Vancouver this year? I'm hoping for some of Norris, Cardona, Comer, Musgrove and Anderson. Anyone else I should be on the lookout for?
That would not be a fix. I get that the soccer model is appealing to people, but it just doesn't make any sense with respect to MLB baseball.
You should check the message board out. We're having a collective orgasm over there.
Fair enough, thanks for the reply!
Oh, please. We're readers voicing an opinion about a product we care about. Get over yourself.
Competitive athletics beget mercenaries, now?
Can you go be pretentious somewhere else? Isn't there an inter-community forum you should be initiating?
Where did he say that this was the only way for the group to spend time together? And why is going to an art show or a concert empirically better than attending a baseball game?
Imagining, as you seem to do, that only uncultured boors enjoy going to pro sporting events, or that attending said events in anyway excludes one from doing any of the things you mention is completely asinine, not to mention unfounded.
Some people like to relax and bond at baseball games, even if, as in this case, the circumstances are imperfect. Get over yourself.
I\'ve been thinking for a long time about the different ways hockey analysis could go, and I\'m super excited to see what you guys do with it. BP pushed my love for baseball to new levels, maybe PP will do the same for hockey.
Hear, hear, Joe.
Yankees, 6/130, 12/7
I would be very, very stoked for a Hockey Prospectus. I was actually thinking of emailing one of the BP guys to ask if they knew of any high quality hockey analysis because it sure is hard to find. Hockey Prospectus would be awesome!
And let me join the chorus of Canadians pointing out that Sid wasn\'t a rookie last year.
Well, I\'m no expert on the mechanics of third order wins, but intuitively it makes sense that if four very strong teams are in a division together, their records will be worse than if they were spread out amongst less talented teams. And to suggest that the third order wins measurement reflects a \"pro-AL East slant\" seems to suggest that BP is cooking the numbers to favor that decision, which I think is absurd.
Your next point is strange. You point to hits allowed as a decisive statistic (which is doubtful) but the Rays allowed less hits than the Phillies, even without having to face DHs. So, your reasoning here would support Joe\'s assertion that the Rays are better, and I don\'t think that\'s what you were trying to do. As for their WHIP in 7 games against a great offense... well, you\'ll excuse me if I don\'t buy that as a serious mark against them.
Finally, the Rays hitters struck out 7.5 times a game. The Phillies, 6.9.
If these are your best arguments, you have some serious work to do.
I second the call for a bit more discussion of sleepers or relative unknowns, and for a \"State of the System\" type piece.
