What is wrong with these people?


Today, after listening to Joe Benigno totally ripping sabermetrics and the people who follow it, and Evan Roberts laughing with him and not disagreeing, I decided to call them up and give them a piece of my mind. (Insert run on sentence joke here.) I wanted to say that Joe shouldn't be talking about things he has no idea about. I wanted to say that while Evan always claims he's a middle of the road guy, I've never heard him once use a sabermetric stat seriously. I wanted to mention how sabermetricians are working for the actual major league teams and not living with their mothers as Joe claims. I wanted to point out that these stats come from somewhere and make sense if you checked them out and weren't pulled up by some wizard. All I was able to get out was that Joe had no idea what he was talking about and a few more words before I was hung up on. My conversation with Francesa a few weeks ago lasted six times as long and these guys are supposed to be the "friendly" hosts. It infuriated me how he made fun of it when he doesn't know what it is and then hung up on me when I tried to defend it. My friends tell me not to listen to sports radio but I get bored in the car and find myself putting it on. Why are they all morons?
