Objectivity seems to be missing from this forum.  If we like a particular player or manager or G.M. , they can do no wrong. If we dislike them , they can do no right. We use terms like " small sample size " only when it suits our purpose. Ignore it otherwise. We will use stats to back up our arguments when the stats support our position. Otherwise , we ignore the stats and point to some other reason or factor. We sometimes deny things that are clearly obvious , because it's not the way we would like it to be. If we are proven wrong in some of our past predictions , we either conveniently forget , make up some excuse , or say " wait a couple of more years ."  This is a continuing issue on this forum.  With few exceptions , objectivity has pretty much disappeared. I certainly include myself in this.
