my preferences, by p. tyrone beatty:
Hitting: OBP, TB, SB, Runs, RBI
Pitching: Losses, Ks, Innings Pitched, WHIP, ERA. Yeah, i say forget relievers. f--- their inflated value.
i agree with Saud partially about WHIP. WHIP is an inelegant, clunky stat, that's not intuitive. it's not a fun thing to root for, but it's the only pitching stat that really makes sense. how else can you measure how good a guy is. although i guess WHIP doesn't account for the kinds of hits you give up. i could get behind killing WHIP, but we need a replacement for it.
