Raisel Ghul, the Demon's Head
Two quick items:
1) This post gets us one closer to that magical 1,000 post mark so I can finally put this thread out of its misery.
2) The next person to incorrectly use the term "differential" gets hit with the permaban stick. (Okay, not really. But it's a major pet peave of mine.) When subtracting, the resultant is known as a difference. A differential implies a derivative. It's a run difference, not a run differential, even though it's universally used incorrectly. We aren't doing calculus here. </math rant>
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

Corey was a flyer, this is a bona fide "cross off the item from the list" move.
This move strikes me much the same as the Cordero one did last year-this check off of the "to do" list isn't showing a great deal of creativity. At least Cordero was good even though his signing wasn't really a good one.
"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
