Re: Why in the world do people say that Choo doesn't hit well against lefty?
So Mr. Cameron,
What do you make of the fact that one of the game's best hitters, our own Joey Votto (he played the game!) is interested in SABR stats and looks his own up regularly?
That "if you didn't play the game, you can't understand it" stuff is garbage, and this is from someone who DID play the game. It makes you sound like someone incapable of understanding the statistical side of things, so you pound your chest and say "Well you nerds never played so naaahh naaahhh".
It's one thing to think using stats and SABR data and nothing else is a bad way to evaluate the game, and I'd tend to agree. But to drag out that old "if you didn't play the game" line really, really is not going to make you any friends. At all.
