    Steel, would you consider this instead as an ending for all your posts? :

    I think it would have some merit if a sub-forum off ORG. Stat-mongers could have a field day. Call it the Bit Bucket.

    But to put it out in the DMZ, it would be like trying to negotiate a peace between Israel and Hezbollah. IEDs and drive-by shootings would be commonplace.

    Re: Sabermetrics Forum?

    The primary point is not to move the threads using statistics that are about the Reds. It's a place to talk about statistics in general, a place for those meta discussions about stats that otherwise detract from the Reds specific talk. It's not segregation by philosophy, but rather a way to remove some of the distracting non-Reds focused discussion from ORG, while providing another place for topic-specific interaction of all RedsZone members. Guess I forgot what a touchy subject it is.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Here are a few other forums that could get some use:

    Drew Stubbs Is a Bust
    St. Louis Cardinals
    Juan Castro Is Useless
    _____________ Sucks (Despite What the Facts Say)
    Release Mike Stanton

    I think your idea isn't even in the same universe as silliest idea ever...

    I'm not on the 'Release Mike Stanton' bandwagon just yet, but if he doesn't turn it around by the All-Star break next year, I'll be willing to pay for his ticket out of town, though.

    I think it is a tremendous idea.
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    C'mon now! The first 6 months will be devoted to vocabulary like a foreign language taught in high school. Just the ABCs will include such words as AdjG, APW, AEqRA, AEqR, BRARP, BRAR, BFP, and collapse rate. After the vocabulary is mastered, then we'll graduate to things like the latest on ORG: Pitcher Abuse Points. I think it only took a little over 1500 words to describe that one. Instead of rep points, pupils who master this forum will be awarded credits toward their foreign language requirement at any accredited school.

    And, still, there are people who don't understand it.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    I have an even better idea.

    How about we create a subforum where we discuss how certain ORG posters apparently find it worthwhile to take swipes at other posters in for no particular reason at all.

    You're right I don't understand. We only have so many hours in a day. I don't understand using those precious hours arguing about AdjG and AEqR and all the other hours pouring over sabermetrics. Personally I'd rather spend that time watching baseball, hanging out with my family, boating or making money. But don't get all defensive about it. Diversity is what makes the world go 'round. A lot of folks don't understand why I follow sports like I do. To each his own.
