i can understand the simplicity argument for standard 5x5 (the let's stop bitching argument), but what i can't get my head around is the number of people on the blog who are sticklers for incorporating walks (morcy's critique of TB down below) but still don't seem to mind standard 5x5. standard 5x5 means we're back to the dark ages of walks never counting. and though it seems like we're all over the place here, once we recognize that no one's going to sign off on IP as a negative stat for pitchers (WHAT?) as a stat, we're really only talking about R, RBI, W here. if we can reach some consensus there, we're in pretty good shape.
i really need to stop posting on the blog before work. shouldn't i be doing this AT work?
