Absolutely dk. It's all good. It's really no big deal.

Well I'd say I've come to the conclusion that going simply by batting AVG and HRs is a bad idea, and going off OBP when piecing together a team is a much better option.
Man, if only guys like Billy Beane had been around to tell us this stuff 5 years ago.

Up next in OS's continuing baseball strategy series: "Which is better, the home run or the single?"

OS needs to recruit this guy.

Because Tim McCarver is such an important piece of FOX baseball broadcasts?

When I meant informative I meant the NASCAR article.

Maybe the point of the article...to generate discussion. It's worked in my opinion.

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.
Defensive much? I never stated you didn't read the article. That statement was more of a generalization. I quoted your post to respond to your opinion on Sully's statement (which he ended up saying was a joke).

The article never stated there was just one statistic to best evaluate players. Rather, it's goal was to argue whether or not one statistic was best. You can agree or disagree.

I was, however, happy to see you took the mature route and called out me representing OS based off a simple difference of opinion.

I expected a little more from a former mod.
