Not sure how to quote on these things but.. Ill try .

There were far worse decisions than that.

And looking strictly at errors is a terrible measure.
David Wright is a horrid defender no matter how you look at it. He is living off of that VERY overrated barehanded catch ( not that hard in all honesty ).. His arm is one of the weakest I have seen , not very accurate either and his range is average considering his age.

All I need is my eyes to tell if someone is good in the field or at the plate.

Re: The Most Important Baseball Stat?

Wright is pretty average overall actually.

It was hardly the best. In fact, I'd say it was the most irrelevant in relation to the actual article.

If you read the article it's about what statistical method is best for assessing player's statistics, and not team wins. Players statistics matter because no team will consistently win with nine Micky Morandini's on their roster.

Re: The Most Important Baseball Stat?

Yeah, I meant it as a more of a joke...

As for the article, I'm not really sure what the point of it is. Pretty much everything stated is common baseball knowledge. The casual fan will learn more from the posts in this thread than from the original piece.

Hey man--I READ the article. If you READ my post, you would see that. I understand the "point" of the article was to discuss which stat was best. However, as I said in my post there is not just ONE stat. Any person who knows baseball at all, knows that. Heck even Bill James says that. I closed my post with a quick little ONE line freakin statement saying that wins are the bottom line. Like Jackets said, there are many paths to get there.

Read my entire post, you know about bullpens and Adam Dunn before you comment on the last freakin sentence and make it look like I don't know what I am talking about...Thanks for representing OS.

Hey, there are only about 15 games a day lasting 3 hours or so each. It's not inconceivable that he watches all of them and thus is able to give us a perfectly accurate assessment of each player that isn't skewed by memory and sample size.
