I'm still not completely sure what he thinks is flawed. He keeps bringing random incorrect information up.
SB were taken out. The difference between HBP and uBB is not large enough to me to call it a completely flawed stat, especially when it's competition are 2 counting stats useless average that tells me one thing.
They get the numbers from other data. They don't just pull it out. HBP must be more valuable in their research.
You have no idea how excited I am right now.
It doesn't matter is the stat is 2.456374 x the density of the hitter's poop. What matters is if it predicts runs and predicts wins significantly better than simpler stats.
