    FanGraphs gets even cooler...

    Presumably most of you are already aware of the wonderful resource FanGraphs. It's right there with Baseball Reference and Baseball Cube as the stat sites I visit most. Well, they just rolled even more cools stats.

    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.

    Yep. It's the best bang for your money that you don't have to spend yet.....
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
