Dickey Boasts Best Cy Young Saber-Credentials

Unlike many of the Cy Young comparisons you've seen before, this is one viewed through the lens of some of the more unorthodox, yet no less relevant, pitching statistics out there.

Baseball Prospectus: Extra Innings - a worthwhile read

At my library last week, I pIcked up a copy of "Extra Innings" from Baseball Prosepectus. It is well worth reading. The parts I really enjoyed were related to use of bullpens and how to construct a bullpen. In the section on constructing a pen, there was some great information on cost per WAR for by position (starter, reliever, fielders) and variability from one year to the next. It was really enlightening. I'd do a full review, but I'm, uh, booked right now at work. And if you do not have a card for your local library, GET ONE. Remember: you are not a Braves fan, and you can read.

Tony LaRussa is Going Rogue

This is probably the highlight of the column. "You want the Cardinals to be a sabermetric-based creation? Well, you better SABR La Russa down to the ground, ’cause it’ll happen over his dead body. You want defense and a high OBP? Well, La Russa wants ballplayers who hustle and scuffle and rip the knees on their uniform pants. He wants a team of no-retreat, no-surrender players. In other words: Skip Schumaker. And TLR will always invest in Skip’s heart." Nice to see Cincinnati doesn't have the only idiot columnists.

On February 3, 2010, Deep Focus, Inc. withdrew its application to trademark the term "sabermetrics"...

On February 3, 2010, Deep Focus, Inc. withdrew its application to trademark the term "sabermetrics" for social media consulting services. Sabermetrics was coined by statistician Bill James, who first introduced the word to readers of his Abstract in March 1980, writing: "Sabermetrics is the mathematical and statistical analysis of baseball records." Since that time, sabermetrics has become a ubiquitous part of the baseball landscape at all levels and by players, front office staff, the media, and fans alike. Most major league teams use sabermetrically derived statistics as part of their player evaluations. Members of the Baseball Writers Association of America and others who report on baseball refer to sabermetrics and its metrics on a regular basis. Recently James has said that sabermetrics is a "declaration of no ownership of knowledge."
