Thought this would be fun. I'm not a huge sabermetric kind of guy and admittedly I'm not real familiar with all the different stats used to show how good guys are or aren't now a days.
For those who are interested, post some of these terms and how they equate to a players rating. Things like a players "WAR", and others that indicate a players range defensively etc.. I'm a huge baseball guy but there are a ton of new stats out there. I'm old school so ERA,batting avg,OBP, are the main ones that used to be considered ways to tell a players ability. Why are some of them good and some just that add to the confusion?
If it's a busted thread I invite any mods who see fit to delete it. It's been years since I started a thread.
