    Default Nerd-Gasim, New Stats For Baseball Enlighten Game Even More

    At the meeting of American Association for the Advancement of Science, statistitions just went nuts:

    Shane T. Jensen of the University of Pennsylvania has come up with a statistical way to compare the fielding performance of every Major League Baseball player with the average performance for all players in each position. Using stats from the 2002 to 2005 seasons and dividing the field up into smaller zones for analysis than previous modelers have done, he confirmed the opinions of many of fans and commentators about the abilities of well-known fielders.

    Coco Crisp, Gary Matthews Jr., Reed Johnson and Andruw Jones are among the best outfielders, whereas Manny Ramirez, Bobby Higginson and Wily Mo Pena are among the worst.
    We're going to need bigger baseball cards.

    I didn't need a scientific study to tell me Manny is a shitty fielder.
