This post in Baseball Primer, from someone who's fed up with the cult of sabermetrics, made me laugh:

Ha ha the tigers are FOOLS - I have thus deemed them FOOLS.
So speaketh my stats.
Pudge is no longer PERFECT, therefore the Tigers are FOOLS for signing an imperfect player.

I predict every player you like will get injured and Derek Jeter will win the gold glove, Alfonso Soriano will be player-manager and Giambi really did lose that weight from foregoing pasta.

Actually the whole thread, regarding stats vs. nonquantifiables in baseball, is a good read. As usual, I find myself in agreement with the fencesitters.

I'm listening to the radio right now and our local "eclectic" DJ is congratulating himself for discovering the group Air yesterday. You can just hear how impressed he is with himself for playing this obscure art band. bigass eyeroll

Note: I like Air, and I've been listening to them for years, but this DJ bugs me more than a wiretap-crazy federal agent.

speaking in a low-pitched mellifluous public radio voice:
"Such a feel-good piece, Alpha Beta Gaga. Air, the band is called."
