Before you jump to post a comment about how you hate Sabermetrics, or how you find them useless. Please at least read this? For starters, I’m terrible at Math.

  “We’re playing pretty good baseball. I knew once those middle of the order guys hit, it could be a lot of fun. The good thing is we have won games when they haven’t hit; now that they’re hitting it’s more of an all inclusive thing.”  ~  Jerry Manuel   “It’s great to see that everybody […]

Maybe I should move more often.  My family moved from Tennessee to Wisconsin two weeks ago, and about that time the Mets were slipping deeper and deeper into a funk, starting out with a 2-6 record.  It looked like Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya might not last until the end of April with the team.
