Comparing a statistical analysis of baseball to the existence of God is a rather foolish (and perhaps insulting) analogy, and telling us that we will not listen to anything you say is calling us close minded.

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/mlb/7402/eric-wedgeFOX Sports reports that the Mariners recently contacted Lou Pinella regarding their managerial opening, but the 70-year-old told them he wasn't interested.
"I talked to them about the job, but that’s it," Pinella said. "There was nothing else to it. It was just conversation, nothing more." Pinella added that he's "happy doing what I’m doing, which is watching a little baseball, doing a little bit of television for the Yankees, 15 games or so a year. It keeps me involved a bit." Reds pitching coach Bryan Price, former Chicago White Sox bench coach Joey Cora, Athletics bench coach Chip Hale, Giants bench coach Ron Wotus and Phillies third base coach Pete Mackanin are on the Mariners' manager wish list.
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
