How it pours, pours, pours …
No chance in hell they play tonight … Did you hear Tony Massarotti on WEEI yesterday?
No way. I gave up on the fatuity of talk radio, sports or otherwise, years ago.
Smart woman, as that saves you from hearing things like this, and I quote: "You have a better chance at scoring with runners on 2nd and 3rd with one out than runners on 1st and 2nd and nobody out" and then went on to say how wrong Bill James is about everything.
Well, you know what they say about opinions. [Laughs] Seriously, though, in today's game you really have no place calling yourself a "sports writer" if you don't understand the basics of Sabermetrics or otherwise so misinterpret the work of James and others in the field.
Yeah, it's like a newspaper sending someone to cover Wall St and the Federal Reserve who's never taken a course in economics.
It's like sending a deaf, dumb, and blind man out to write a movie review …
