ladodger34: MugzyBrown: That was pretty stupid.There are great benefits to analytics in sports. Then it is taken into statistical masturbation which becomes nonsense.What was wrong with it? I read it late last night, but the crux of the stat seems to be let's use all the data possible to figure out the 'little things' that players do to maximize scoring.Statistical masturbation is that crap that baseball announcers use. 'When the Braves wear red jerseys on the second sunday game of the month, Freddy hits .789 when Heyward hits a double in front of him'.This stat might end up being meaningless, but there are a bunch of advanced stats in baseball that were built upon other stats.
