And you have to admit if we did have a light out closer it would have made a couple of games wins instead of losses. 19-25 wouldn't be that much greater, though.
Marty probably like Graeter's ice cream better than Breyer's, but since I like Breyer's better it doesn't mean Marty doesn't know anything about ice cream.
I agree...baseball is like ogres which are like onions which have layers...
But sabermetrics isn't really an issue that Marty is open minded about...I think that's the point...
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
