      Im basically saying that it's hilarious that someone can be pissed off on a message board so easily over a comment that someone else made.

      And your right, my opinion was supported by nothing but on the flip side, can someone tell me what evidence supports UZR and all of the other sabermetric stats.

        I had no idea we ever had him.

        Could do it, we would obviously need you to take Jesse Crain though.

          Laird has done an absolutely terrible job calling pitches tonight, so it isn't entirely his fault. Bondo is too fragile to call his own pitches.

              He's better than Pedroia. Pedroia has the flare for being that gritty player who gets he jersey dirty to make plays. Many of those same plays Cano makes effortless.
              Except he's not a great defender. This based on watching him and defensive sabermetrics. He's got a nice arm and looks smooth at the position but his range is bad which is the biggest thing for a middle infielder.

              Pedroia destroys him range wise and it's not even close.

              It's like people who think Jacoby Ellsbury was a good center fielder. He made a ton of superb plays but it was only because he makes bad reads on the ball and has to make up ground because of it.

                Edit: ATL gave me neg rep and apparenty hates me because I think "UZR" is flawed. I guess you can't have your own opinion.


                And how do you know how his defense actually stacks up if you only see one person play second base every night? Just because he might not be an atrocity out there, doesn't mean he's a good defender and stacks up very well against the rest of the league.

                And I gave you neg rep, because "uh sabermetrics is probably made up by some nerd who doesnt know anything about baseball so they r stupid! lol" is quite possibly one of the stupidest things I've heard. And as already stated, no one really gives a flying **** if you get neg repped.

                  Fair enough. But I didn't say that the person who created sabermetrics was stupid. Please don't put words in my mouth.

                        So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                            You said sabermetrics were pointless, which is similar to stupid in this sense, and what I was referring too.

                              I would love to live in D.C. (maybe not really that part) just so I could pay like $5 every day to watch a baseball game and sit like where ever I wanted.

                              Like you said, I don't understand how people just don't want to go watch a ball game on a gorgeous day...for basically free. It baffles me. I would be going all the time just for something to do.
