JohnnyCanuck: Dafatone: JohnnyCanuck: Dafatone: His point is that he's angry at numbers. It's pretty clearThis is what I was talking about. It goes far beyond calling the game from behind the plate. Just because I threatened your delicate intellect and you felt the need to dig for something to try make yourself feel better is beyond my control. However, your response was probably more predictable than a players ability.So who is it that is differentiating between a PB & a WP? Unless I am unaware that MLB went to a new scientifically developed system, I'm pretty sure it could be one of 30+ individuals on any given day. Individuals that have different definitions of such. Same as an umps zone. (at least they're starting to be schooled for some consistency)FYI: The same person who decides what is an error or a base hit....among other things in the game that are used in graduated stats that are based on human judgments, yet somehow claim to eliminate such things.An accurate equation does not have a bunch of instances, each with their own outliers, that get put together with an expectancy of ignoring the fact that you came to a single representation that does not account for the fact that all of those outliers have been magnified by having them all mashed into an answer.\also..the criteria for who gets the W should have been changed LONG ago. The fact that a reliever can come it and hypothetically get the W without throwing a pitch is insane. We give the score the power to determine all sorts of things with regard to stats, yet not the W for the pitcher. If an RP comes into a tie game with 2 out and picks a guy off without throwing a pitch and his team takes the lead in their half of the inning he could get the W instead of the starter who went 7 strong in a scoreless tie.\\stupid
Dafatone: And if we're just going to say that facing different hitters / pitchers / fielders / scorers / umps / parks makes doing anything with stats too subjective, doesn't that throw out any stats? Player A hits 35 homers or bats .330, and player B hits 25 hr and bats .300, but we can't tell the difference because there are too many factors up in there air. Oh well.
Dafatone: If you're going to insult me, don't fail at quoting?
chimp_ninja: That and I'm not sure who you're arguing with here.
JohnnyCanuck: Hey...sorry, I was busy having a life.
JohnnyCanuck: Who here has ever actually played, well...anything athletic?
JohnnyCanuck: i'll knock you down again. You'll learn, my friends........you'll learn!
JohnnyCanuck: then loooooong after I post in hopes I'm done for the night
JohnnyCanuck: You were actually doing pretty well keeping it calm for a while...probably 'till you thought I was gone.
JohnnyCanuck: Hey...sorry, I was busy having a life.I like how Mr. Mann shows up shortly before, then loooooong after I post in hopes I'm done for the night and won't prove how clueless he is...again.
chimp_ninja: I wanted a "best of"
Dafatone: His point is that he's angry at numbers. It's pretty clear.
chimp_ninja: You sound like you did well in algebra but never understood statistics.
DeWayne Mann: Numbers.Dafatone: If you're going to insult me, don't fail at quoting? Is that too much to ask?
chimp_ninja: I think he's Yuniesky Betancourt's Fark login.
chimp_ninja: Is there an equation for love? No. QED
DeWayne Mann: Gotcha. Makes total sense.
chimp_ninja: P.P.S. This is not a bookmark.
chimp_ninja: If you have someone arguing that "Equations" Are The Enemy, bringing up DRS, UZR, FRAA, etc. is kind of futile.
thecpt: chimp_ninja: P.P.S. This is not a bookmark.Came back just cause. I always assumed farkers were more athletic/successful than these running gags we let play out.
JohnnyCanuck: I can successfully multiply by infinity.
thecpt: Came back just cause
thecpt: these running gags
JohnnyCanuck: thecpt: Came back just causeYou probably don't want me to finish that sentence for you. Seriously, I know why you came back. Somewhat similar to the reason I did. Although not quite exact.thecpt: these running gagsSo tell me about what you rationalize to yourself as a "running gag". It's very interesting that you felt the need to express that. Very much in line with what I would have expected.How was your relationship with your mother/father/siblings? Individually...not grouped as your family.
thecpt: but here you do some major toe stomping some days.
