    2. Who are your favorite teams? Oakland A's, and Cubs

    1) 51 Years.
    2) Chicago Cubs
    3) To a degree
    4) Primarily how people can put so much value into stats that are based a lot in theory, or what "SHOULD" be, rather than what IS.
    5) Are Sabermetrics actually intersting to people or is it just a math thing? Its a game..not a math practice.

    1. How long have you been following baseball? Became a fan in my youth (late 70's), lost interest as Steinbrenner got rid of my favorite players. Got back into it in 1993 thanks to college roommate, Buck Showalter and Steinbrenner's ban.
    2. Who are your favorite teams? Yankees
    3. Are you familiar with sabermetrics? Conceptually, yes. Couldn't really hold a conversation about it or explain it in any depth.
    4. What do you want to learn about sabermetrics? Have a comfortable familiarity with the esoteric terms, and a better understanding of the rationale behind the "new" stats.

    Why am I only now seeing this little area? I'm going to blame Jilly for not directly informing me about this, because otherwise it would be my fault, and that can't be right.


    1. How long have you been following baseball? My first words were "Holy Cow!"

    2. Who are your favorite teams? Cubs are #1. Cards are #30. All the rest are tied in the middle.

    3. Are you familiar with sabermetrics? Does knowing that Wins are a shittastic indicator of talent count?

    4. What do you want to learn about sabermetrics? Why doesn't the Runs Created stat have the highest correlation to run production?

    5. Anything else you would like to learn about, or any suggestions? There's plenty of things I'd like to learn about and I've got buckets full of suggestions, but none of them really apply to this topic.
