BDD: Baseball Needs to Retire Batting Average

I published a rant against batting average at Baseball Digest Daily today. Check it out if you’re interested.

I also analyzed Adam Eaton’s first three starts of the season.

Don’t forget to check out With Leather’s hilarious interview with Kenny Mayne.

    Thanks for the link. The link to the Kenny Mayne interview has a “My SQL” error.

    Read the article on eliminating the BA and left a comment at BDD.

    I hate it. The only reason I linked to it is because the guy who writes for it held a gun to my head as I typed my blog.

    “Eaton’s early success is likely due to luck more than anything”

    I was afraid of that….

    Still Eaton couldn’t possibly be as bad as he was last year, can he?

    It’d be hard to replicate that level of suckitude, but with Eaton, Murphy’s Law is as real as it ever could be.
