"It's hard to win an argument with a smart person, but it's damn near impossible to win an argument against a stupid person." - Bill Murray
WAR is fact
Pythagorean records and win expectancy have value
Strikeouts are overrated
Best regular season record = best team
Regular season > Post season
The difference between me and you is I don't need the internet to discuss baseball intelligently.
Watching the Giants bullpen like:
- “He runs meetings like a coach. Basically, I’m playing with a coordinator on the field. He’s a football God. He sees everything, and he sees the big picture of everything." - Frank Gore on Andrew Luck
- "He is as smart as Peyton, as accurate as Brady, tougher than Ben and as athletic as RG3." - Anonymous Head Coach on Andrew Luck

When old school is exactly what you posted. Which i like in random discussion threads such as this.
I think Huff will hit .275 with 17 HR and 70-75 RBI.. He'll be good enough, not as good as 2010.
I STILL remember the first game of the season in 2010, and on PSD, threads about how Huff's AB's are going to be brutal and that DeRosa looks like a player. That was after DeRosa did nothing that day, and Huff did. It turned out that DeRosa contributed nothing to the giants over 2 seasons, and Huff was instrumental in a trip to the World Series. I'll give Huff the benefit of the doubt. He partied for a year... he's ready to get back to work.
2009-2014. 3 World Series Championships, 2 Stanley Cup Championships, 2 NBA Championships, and a Super Bowl Appearance. 3 No-Hitters, 1 Perfect Game, 3 NFC Title Games, Jim Harbaugh, Bruce Bochy, Phil Jackson, Daryl Sutter.
2015-??? Lakers stink, Kings missed the playoffs, Giants are hanging in there, 49ers are staring at lean years ahead.
I know you are thinking long term benefits and getting players like Belt and Pill an extended chance, but just cannot root for any of our guys to be bad.
My god how quickly people forget Aubrey Huff helped us win the World Series. This site can be pretty pathetic at times. I hope to get 280/18/80 out of Huff this year. Belt should still get a fair amount of bats between extra outfielder and 1b when Huff rests. If Huff completely bombs than we go to Belt/Pill at 1b
