    1. How long have you been following baseball? Probably since about 1985.
    2. Who are your favorite teams? Angels and Cardinals. The first cause I grew up watching them, the second because I live in The Lou now and my girlfriend is a big Cardinals fan.
    3. Are you familiar with sabermetrics? Yup.
    4. What do you want to learn about sabermetrics? I'd like to learn how to figure out things like a player's WAR on my own. I know there have been threads started, I've mostly just been too lazy to take the time with them. But, currently I rely on places like Fangraphs and StatCorner to give me what I'm looking for.
    5. Anything else you would like to learn about, or any suggestions? If you're new here and looking to learn, have an open mind. Coming in talking about how RBI is the best stat around and making cracks about how we all live in our mother's basement (I live in my grandmother's, thank you) isn't going to help anyone.

    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....
