In response to RedSoxKimmi's comment:
"My understanding of statistics was not as good as 30 Something/Val."
When it comes to understanding and interpreting statistics, there is no one as good as Val, aka Thirty Something. I wish he would return to these forums. The man is pure genius.
Val was and is a very asute baseball mind, he's one of many that migrated to another site, when the BDC changed formats more than a decade ago. I didn't know that he reincarnated as 30 something? I do see from time to time a few of the old Dem Yanks crew drop in...CT Chris is another "old timer" who I have found to be very knowledgable, but not nessesarilty a stat head...My question is where did jesseyeric go? He and Jete would get my vote for "the most congenial Yankee fans" I thought jesse brought a lot to the board.
Funny, but the more I think about and contribute to the poster of the year and the top ten posters threads and read through all of the comments...I have finaly found the answer to the question of why I keep coming back year after year. Because of all of you.
