The best video explaining a sabermetric concept you’ll see today

Jan 13, 2011, 10:01 AM EST

And I'd say it was awesome even if it didn't have a dragon in it. But yeah, it has a dragon in it.

 

 

If only someone did one of these for every single sabermetric concept out there.

    Wait a minute….. We’ve seen this totally awesome video already… I watched it twice for ha ha’s.

    Yeah, didn’t Bob Harkins post this a couple of days ago? Why yes, Virginia, I believe he did: http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/01/10/stats-for-dummies-beware-the-luck-dragon/

    Someone should definitely forward the link to John Tomase, stat, though. Oh wait a minute, that might punch a hole in his argument in today’s Herald about not counting on a bounceback from Beckett in 2011.

    Do’h! Missed it. Sorry Bob!

      No worries. We don’t demand complete perfection from our lawyers turned baseball bloggers. And it is a really cool video.

        Speak for yourself!!! Craig, Selig has submitted this infraction to one of his committees for review. You should be hearing back at some point in the not too distant future…or not.
