    Great SABR Quotes

    Feel free to cite any great sabr quotes for others to use/read/discuss

    Ernie Harwell, the late Detroit Tigers broadcaster, said: ôSABR is the Phi Beta Kappa of baseball, providing scholarship which the sport has long needed. ... An excellent way for all of us to add to our enjoyment of the greatest game."

    "Let's try to find ten good things to say about Albert Belle:
    10. So far as we know, he's never killed anyone.
    9. He is handsome, and built like a God.
    8. He played every game.
    7. He has never appeared on the Jerry Springer Show.
    6. He was an underrated base runner who was rarely caught stealing.
    5. He hasn't been arrested in several years.
    4. He is very bright.
    3. He works hard.
    2. He has never spoken favorably about Adolf Hitler, Saddam Hussein, or any other foreign madman.
    1. The man could hit."
    — Bill James
