Re: Is it ok to do this?
I'm almost 34 (less than 2 weeks) and work as a web programmer. I grew up in Dayton, graduated from Florida State with a degree in meteorology *ducks*, and now live in the suburbs near Washington, DC. I became a Reds fan because of my family, always going to games - I can remember as far back as the late 70's going to games. I went to the final Johnny Bench home game, as well as the game where Pete got 4192. Great memories all.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
