Re: Interesting post from Sons of Sam Horn...
I think both schools can learn something from each other. Both the old school and the sabres Billy Beane Types. However, the problems arises that stats and such can be learned by a former player. But a stathead cannot go back and be a Major Leaguer. There are certain things that "fans" will never understand because they never played competive baseball. All these stats really go from a logical standpoint is predict the liklihood a player or team will do something at a given time. It uses what already took place and then applies it to probably will occur in the future.
