How many HOF players are inducted for any of those metricbabble measures? OBP????
While OBP was not viewed highly in days past, it is now.
lol..the hardest thing to do in sports is to get a hit, the easiest is to draw a walk or get on by an error - they all count the same according to that nonsense...
Actually reaching on an error does not pad your OBP. Drawing a walk is not "easy", even if you are a feared hitter.
face it Pedey is downright pedestrian in stats that matter...
.296 since 2009 is hardly "pedestrian". He has hit .299 in 2011-2012 combined. That's an improvement over 2009-2010, yet you see decline based on an injury affected season.
RBIS and Hits and avg...
HRS & RBIs per 162
2007: 9 58
2008: 17 85
2009: 15 75
2010: 25 88
2011: 21 92
2012: 17 74
I don't see any sign of decline. One season does not make a trend. His 2010 and 2011 seasons were actually better than 2008 in RBIs per game.
If your point was that recent injuries might be signalling a decline, you might have a valid argument, but his production is not in decline over any sequence of years.
you just have a player who won the first triple crown in 45 years...did that escape you and Joey? Show me something even comparable with any of those stats?
No, I missed it. Did someone really win the triple crown? LOL
There are none because they dont matter...like that silly UZR nonsense <flush> and the even more laughable CERA <dblflush>
Your short sample size nonsense is the biggest flush.
Pedey is the heart and soul of our team and he cant even make the all star team anymore...what does that tell you?
He's been hurt? Cano has had some great recent seasons? Voters are idiots like you? You tell me.
I can see why you quote the stats - truth hurts like a mf
I just quoted stats you brought up. How do they hurt now?
