To everyone that follows WalkoffWoodward, ever notice how they never comment on anything until after everyone else does, and then they just repeat what everyone else says. Especially BYB. They'll post an opinion on something and within two minutes WW will post the exact same thing.

Fly balls to center field in Comerica would not be a bad thing. My biggest concern was that he had the worst BA against (.301) and SLG against (.465) on fastballs of his career. His slider and curve were still effective.

Hard hit grounders to center are probably more likely to be base hits. That might well be why his BAA and SLG are up. The issue is batters getting too good a look at him. He needs to turn that around.

Did he also give up more base hits while the fan in seat #5 in section 223 drank a beer? Some of these stats are getting kind of stupid....

If you hate stats, there are plenty of sports you can watch where you don't have to encounter them. MMA or adventure racing would probably suit the bill for you.

I don't "hate" stats. Some of these advanced stats are getting a bit ridiculous though. They shouldn't fully replace sound qualitative "gut" experience. Otherwise we should all just have robots as managers.

Has anyone but Heyman reported this as a done deal? Not counting people that are using Heyman's tweet.

Morosi and Rosenthal confirmed last night the Tigers were in serious talks so we know both sides had interest. This would be a blow to Heyman's reputation if he reports a deal with numbers. Then again, I'm not too familiar with Heyman.

they don't replace those things, but things like "gut" and experience aren't measurable.

Since advanced stats help teams make winning decisions in the front office and in the clubouse, they're not even a bit ridiculous.

You don't have to use or understand or even like advanced stats, but you have to accept that Baseball is never going back to not using them. Advanced stats are an innovation, not a fad. The war is over, and sabermetrics has won.

I will agree with you on one point: they won't be fully replacing gut experience. There will still be teams who do that. The Philadelphia Phillies are one. The Maimi Marlins are another. They're on board with your way of thinking, and hey, they could use more fans.
