Re: John Dewan - Defense worth 50% of offense
The distinction that Dewan needs to make is that fielding is worth roughly 1/2 of offense. This is a case where definitions are vital for accuracy.
And truthfully, Dewan needs to get out more if he truly believes he's discovered something.
"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
