    Maybe just one thread pinned with the acronyms, their formulas, basic use and basic quality ranges of the stat.
    Sounds simple enough but who's to say what is good, great, etc? This board can't agree on the weather...

    You're asking for an argument before the ink dries on such a thread

    I'm going to use standard deviation as the litmus test for good and bad levels.

    It might be a good idea to include website links in the FAQ of the relevant stats to be discussed for those who don't have that information. They're actually spread out on a number of different websites. I have most of the sites bookmarked, but it takes me awhile to find the relevant bookmark.

    That's a good idea. I'll have a short description of each stat within the FAQ, but have a link to a more detailed analysis for each one for people that want to delve deeper.

    As someone who frequently gets lost in the stats discussions, I'm really looking forward to this. Thanks Brutus.

    I would like to see where we could simply submit a question to a selected panel of 3-5, where one or two of them can choose to answer the question. No, not to argue with the answers given, but, to just submit a question, and get feedback that helps our overall understanding.

    Example:
    What is this acronym, and the number it represents? Why is that important? Why does that matter? How are we suppose to use that to interpret the good, bad and in between? Why should we care about or consider that?

    Something that is neutral and helps each of us to get and to have a better and mutual understanding if we choose to. Not that one would have to run out and start doing a lot of math and statistical formulas, but a simple question and answer that just explains a bit more for everyone without the argument side or the pressures of being right or wrong.

    Something that leads to one being able to ask a question, and those that are most adapt at answering the question respond and it help all the participants of RedsZone’s understanding and future inputs and feedbacks on the overall baseball board.
