Which explains your bias.

That's about all there is to it. I don't really care either way, I simply want the team to win, I just don't like the razor being thrown about irresponsibly.

My Carl Sagan baloney detection kit flagged your response, I'm sorry.
Try not to get overly attached to a hypothesis just because it's yours.

And don't confuse this response as endorsement of Abdelkader. I'm not thrilled with his play, as I really expected more from him. But the facts, as they are, maintain he's easily the top hitter in the top 6. Your argument that he doesn't "hit big" is heard, but it doesn't erase the notion that he's making more contact than anybody else and perhaps that's the explanation for why he's being slotted into that position.

Using the Occam's Razor to justify your bias when all we have to go on are soundbites, well, foolish. The razor assumes you have data to begin with, not gut feelings.
