    I just volunteered at a church for helping Sandy victims. Helping people feels good.

    Let's corral the WAR horse
    Useful? Yes. But the be-all of stats? A critical look at Wins Above Replacement.
    Originally Published: February 1, 2013
    By Jim Caple | ESPN.com

    I was tempted to begin this column with the almost-obligatory lyrics from "War," a No. 1 hit song in 1970. But when Edwin Starr sang that war was good for "absolutely nothing'' (say it, say it again), he was recording a protest against actual warfare. My protest, on the other hand, is about something much more widespread, threatening and serious.

    I'm talking about the proliferation of WAR: Wins Above Replacement.

    Wait! I'm not just some old curmudgeon sportswriter reflexively ranting against the latest technical advance. Well, yes, I am an old curmudgeon sportswriter who routinely rants about new technology -- in fact, my friends joke I would have complained about the introduction of electric light bulbs ("For crying out loud, what's wrong with a simple candle!?!") -- but hear me out on this WAR thing.

    First, let me stress there are things I like about WAR.

    1. Unlike most stats revered by curmudgeons (who tend to view RBIs as the most reliable and masculine of statistics), WAR not only acknowledges a player's defense, it embraces his fielding as a vital part of his performance. Other stats focus on offense; WAR makes defensive statistics a key part of its calculations.

    Any xbox players out there? http://2ksports.com/games/mlb2k13

    I thought they didn't buy the license for this year, but I guess they did unless this site is a fake. Anyway, I don't have a ps3 otherwise I would be playing the show. If anyone else is going to get this game for xbox let me know.

    I do PC here and I'm pissed that I can only get the 2K serious because it's garbage. Last one I bought was 2K10 and it's so, so, so bad
