I'm Mike, at 18 years old. Loved baseball stats since I was 6 and learning Sabremetrics has given me a greater understanding and appreciation of the game. Have some statistical background because my father teaches Biostatistics at a med school and I'm majoring in Accounting for college.

Honestly I think hockey's where baseball was in the 1980s, in terms of condescending attitudes towards analytics and the reliance on narratives like clutchness and intangibles.

Arguments are just not as fun when a fan can just say "you don't watch the games" if you say anything's off about their player's game. Scouting has it's place as does watching games, but so do stats.
