So Zaun takes a swipe at "Sabremetrics" and his evidence against those much-hated newfangled stats being used as decision making tools? poor batting averages vs lefties.
good job there, Zaun.

13-14 Sharks CI Feed Tracker: 30 GP |8-12-10 (SJ-Opponent-Van/Nat'l) www.bluejayshipsters.comWe liked the Blue Jays before it was cool. Sorry, I am not taking signature requests at this time.
The first two quotes I hang on people like Reynolds and Joe Morgan whose dislike for the idea of Moneyball led them to push (and in turn create acceptance for) a totally ridiculous misrepresentation of the "Moneyball strategy" as being to always draft college players who have high OBPs and then to just work the count until they can hit HRs.
I've even had discussions on here with people who were very, very insistent on telling me what Moneyball was all about in spite of the fact that they'd never read the book.
Treated myself to a seat right behind the plate in the 100lvl. Picked a good game to do it. What a performance by both starters. Izturis keeps being useful. Lind with a giant catch. Jays win. All is good.
