    Advanced stats didn't drive Werth out of baseball. He played until he was 38. That's longer than 99% of players.

    As a fan I like the old school numbers much more. I don't need WAR to tell me Mike Trout is the best in the game and Mookie Betts is unbelievable. I like some of the advanced numbers when I try and create a winning fantasy team so I can find good value that might have a better year than the previous.
    If I was in Jayson Werths shoes and all my adult life I had played a game based on hard work and I find myself having a crappy year and I had some kid tell me I'd be better as a hitter if I adjusted my launch angle by 0.56 degrees I'd probably take my frustrations out on him too.
    Advanced analytics are good for the game, teams just need to be careful how they are presenting them to some of the players I think. Pick and choose your spots.

    My biggest gripe is exit velocity...I don't give a **** how hard someone hit a gounder to the short stop. Also if it was a home run...that's all I need to know, I don't care how fast it became a home run.

    He called me super............I feel so special!!!
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    The first comment that showed up on the page "too much work to edit out that first ball?" that wins the comments.
