When you start taking derivative statistics, then performing additional transformations and derivations, you start to lose all value and meaning.
Eh, that's debatable especially with the baseball stats. Maybe it's because I have my degree in statistics so I have a better grasp on them than most but I can't imagine the stats being used so far out of context that they have no value and meaning. They're not the be-all and end-all but they do tell most of the story.

To the thread, I've said what I've needed to and Jame is arguing our side very well. It seems like it's more of a reading comprehension problem for those in opposition than anything.
