Same with pitchers. I never needed all the Saber stuff to know that Bob Gibson or Sandy Koufax were great pitchers. Without even looking at their e.r.a.'s, you knew it. But their e.r.a.'s always backed it up too.
So, the BA of Adam Dunn matches up to his offensive abilty?
And their have been lots of pitchers who have been lights out for a year and them settled back into their normal level. Steve Stone comes to mind.
