    No, it's not that. I've got an open mind. But there is more to baseball than JUST numbers, stats and percentages. There IS an emotional aspect to the game. A strikeout does affect teams emotionally and that can't be tracked by a stat. It DOES demoralize an offense. It DOES pump up that opposing pitcher. And it DOES put even MORE pressure on the next batter coming up. If you constantly see hitters putting bat on ball, you don't get the feeling that the guy is unhittable and go up there with a defeatist attitute. A LOT of this game is about your mindset and how you approach things. And I rarely (if ever) see sabermetric discussions take that into account.

    But like I said, once I get time I will go back and read more of those threads. I'm not "against" sabermetric stats. I see the validity in many of them. But I also see many "old school" stats overlooked & ignored in favor of them like they have no validity what-so-ever. A large majority of the saberstats...I have no clue what they are...yet. The most important ones I do though. I'm not a sabermetric fan or an old-school stat fan. I'm a baseball fan.

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Since this is a game thread, this will be my last post on the subject here, but just FYI:

    The Red Opps. have K'd 68 more times then the Reds this season.

    I'd hate to see the Reds record, I guess, if the other side weren't so defeatest after all those K's.
