What a crock.
The vast majority of stats guys get into stats in order to give them something baseball-related to do when there are no games being played. When they are at a game they every bit the beer swillin', peanut eatin', moundball playin' SOB as any 'traditional' fan. They don't break out the sliderules and spreadsheets until AFTER the game.
