Bill James: "...I ASSUMED that these were complex, nuanced, sophisticated systems. I never really looked; I just assumed that the details were out of my depth. But sometime in the last year I was doing some research that relied on these WAR systems, so I took a look at them, and … they’re not very impressive. They’re not well thought through; they haven’t made a convincing effort to address many of the inherent difficulties that the undertaking presents. They tend to get so far into the data, throw up their arms and make a wild guess. I don’t know if I’m going to get the time to do better of it, or if it will be left to others, but … we’re not at anything like an end point here. I assumed that these systems were a lot better than they actually are."

Ugh. Catchers named Miguel seem like bad news.

I'ma follow Capn's lead and call him Liberace. I liked Dominguez even though he made me nervous.

PUIG with a PUIGian slide. Apparently he led MLB with 15 (?) (the most anyway) outs on the base paths.
