Because baseball can be consumed on multiple levels is one of the things that makes it such a wonderful game. Another thing is its total unpredictability. How many times have you seen a .190 hitter rip a line drive into the corner to beat a closer whose ERA is 1.12, defying every statmeister's probability matrices?Personally, I'm a throwback. The only statistics that have any real meaning to me are the old dependables: BA, HR, RBI, W-L, ERA and maybe OPS. Give me those, and I'll be able to tell you if a player is having a bad, mediocre or good season. I tend to enjoy watching a game more when I can concentrate on pitcher vs. batter, pitch by pitch--but that's just me. You wanna use esoteric statistics to over-analyze every pitch, every batter, every situation, be my guest!
