    The Beane Count

    The Beane Count
    Concocted by ESPN.com's Rob Neyer and named for Oakland A's General Manager Billy Beane, the Beane Count is derived by summing a team's ranks in home runs hit, walks drawn, home runs allowed, and walks allowed.

    What is this really? Reds are ranked #1 in all of baseball not just the NL.

    They're #1 in the NL, but I don't think you can combine the leagues because the rankings are split. They'd come out differently if you combined them.

    It means that the Reds pitchers have managed to keep the ball in the ballpark and not walk a lot of guys.

    That's why a bunch of guys with - for the most part - unexceptional stuff are in the middle of the back in runs allowed.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    It means the offense struggles when the ball stays in the park and they give up too many runs when the other team does the same.
