My most recent post over at Call to the Pen went up yesterday, and it’s about this article this one old dude wrote about how dumb and inhuman and elitist (read: intelligent) sabermetrics are and how they don’t account for awesome human emotions and feelings and whatever other nonsense he said that I can’t even remember anymore because I’m so bored by the whole thing. I wrote about how tired all of this is, and how it kind of bums me out when old dudes, who I assume to be perfectly pleasant and affable gentleman in real life, spout this garbage and get the whole internet up in a puff and mad at them. We should all be friends! We all like baseball and could talk about it together! Maybe. I normally post these companion posts here on the same day of the Call to the Pen publishing, but this time I’m a day late. Mixing it up, people. Keeping shit fresh.
