This article is ironic because it illustrates exactly why I dont use BP for statistical analysis any more. The longwinded argument against SIERA being too complex, etc is juxtaposed by BP's failings in areas like PECOTA errors and WARP, where obvious mistakes like Derek Lowe leading the league were present for weeks, if not months. Now I read BP for more subjective articles, like those byJason Parks, Kevin Goldstein, and John Perrotto, which dont rely on BP's flawed metrics as much. It's pretty disheartening to see so much go into slamming a former colleague and competitor when so much has languished broken on this site for so long this season. Constructive criticism is well and good, but get your own house in order first and show you can keep it that way before you curiously time the release if an article deriding a competitor.

"I have never liked Tony La Russa. I’m not sure how that started, because I probably should—he’s a smart guy who’s always looking for an edge and willing to experiment, which is more than can be said for most big league managers. " One good reason to dislike Tony La Russa is that he has a history of DUI (as does the Cardinals organization).

I really don't understand the point of this article. I mean is there any new information here that BP readers don't already know?

having watched moyers starts this year...and i have no clue if this possible...during the big innings he has had some tough/close calls go against him by the home plate umpire (i'm sure this happens to most/some other pitchers, but this article helped me remember this tidbit)...is there anyway to compare the ump's calls & strike zone in those particular innings vs. other innings in the same starts?

can someone please tell me why?? no arbitration for burrell??? The World Series champion Phillies did not offer arbitration to Pat Burrell, Jamie Moyer, Tom Gordon and Rudy Seanez. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. has said that the Phillies would like to bring back Moyer.
