    This is impossible. The Reds were said by some last summer to be one of those teams that don't use statistical analysis.

    Everyone uses it. Not everyone uses it properly.

    I am not saying the Reds do or don't use it properly. I have no clue.

    Actually, this job mainly consists of showing Jocketty and Baker how to turn on their Commodore 64's and join one of many AOL baseball chat rooms

    It's actually just a kindle version of "The Book," co-authored by Dusty and Hank Aaron.

    I think the new hire will be assisting Dusty in making out gameday lineups.

    Of course they do although using it "properly" is highly subjective.

    But there were actually people on here saying they didn't think the Reds used statistical analysis.

    I thought this thread was going to be about a lead off hitter.

    As far as I'm concerned, nobody has been able to make a better computer baseball game. Micro League Baseball rules!

    Who argued the Reds completely ignored statistics?

    Does it matter who?

    The people that argued that know who they are. I'm not trying to call anyone out specifically.
