I am not a sabermetician. I'm a preacher. I understand the saber-principles, and find these new approaches fascinating.

"Don't Feed the Greed" is my moniker, taken from a sign I held outside the Metrodome, after we the fans, lost a season because of greed. I hope it never happens again. This game is precious, even holy, at times. Thanks for the conversation.
