In response to softlaw2's comment:
Yes, average innings per start:
Do you have the standard deviation on that 6 week sample. And are you familiar with the book:
"How to Lie with Statistics", with a foreward by Carl Crawford, Theo Epstein and Ben Cherrington.
The master of stat manipulation and outright factual lies: the clown himself: softy.
- ever shifting criteria
- invented baseball terminology
-invented mathematical terminolgy
-goalposts made of balsa wood for easy repetitive movements
- a "do the math" thread littered with inaccuracies, but continously reposted after repeated warnings of factual errors.
- a third grade understanding of probabilities and sample size values (he once judged a player based on one pitch).
-brags he doesn't watch the games nor need to watch them and know more than us.
-counted ST stats like they were a 600 PA regular season sample size, and now wants to discount 32 "real games"
- counted Iggy's stats as valid, but suddenly 32 game sample sizes are useless.
-thought Bard's numbers as a starter were "decent"
-thought VMart would be an "elite hitter" and a top 8 htting firstbaseman over the length of his current contract, but claimed Matt Holliday was not an "elite hitter" when he signed with the Cards years ago.
-thinks "pop" means 600+ PAs and only HR power.
-thinks Iggy is a better hitter than Drew- right now.
-thinks Jake is a bum, but AZ would have handed us J Upton for him and a couple prospects not named JBJ (then denied he included Bogaerts, then admitted it with qulaifications, and now denies it again).
-though Jed was a bum, then complained we didn't strike gold when we traded him.
-thought Bill Hall and DMac were great players driven from Boston by racism.
-blamed the 2011 collapse on our 6th starter and back-up catcher.
-thinks the Marlins are the role model for small market teams and the Rays are pretenders.
-actually thinks Jeter is a great fielder because he has some Gold Glove Awards, but discounts Jake's award.
-thinks catcher defense is all about CS%, and actually thought Ramon "hands and legs of stone" Hernandez would have been a great signing for 2 years.
-thinks pitchers call their own shots every pitch of every game.
-advocated signing countless 4th rate pitchers to $1M a year deals, but who all ended up signing for $3M+ and having horrible following seasons as his plan to fix the rotation. (Now, he says our 3-5 starters are "weak".) Brilliant!
-blames Ben for Theo signings, blames Larry for all good signings and deals, and still blames Wake for anything and everything.
-thinks Drew can be traded now.
-thinks I was a racists for suggesting an offer to Papi that was larger than the one he ended up suggesting, basically admitting he is a racist using his own logic.
-thinks I voted for Obama because I dared criticize GW for starting this whole mess (Wars, deficit, unemployment...).
- I could go on, if you guys want some more laughs...
Oh please do...Im loving this...
