    WHIP and quality starts, "sabermetric" measures. God bless them, at least they're trying, even if it is a decade too late.

    Did they really refer to QS as a SABR stat?

    I'm so glad I avoid listening to those two talk about baseball.

    What was wrong with that? There are many casual viewers, who don't post on Twins message boards, who haven't been exposed to SABRmetrics yet.

    It might have something to do with SABR people laughing at the Quality Start stat in all its uselessness.

    Quality starts and WHIP aren't exactly looked at as SABR categories. It's not that they are covering SABR

    WHIP is borderline. Quality Start isn't used by anyone in the SABR community.

    Actually, they were. They were interviewing the president of SABR, hence the discussion, and they had an extended discussion on QS & WHIP. Granted, die-hard statisticians have long since moved passed those stats, but for many casual fans it's new information.

    QS and WHIP have been on the backs of baseball cards for two decades. Sabermetrics typically refers to more complex statistical metrics than QS, WHIP, and OPS. It's fine to educate your audience on statistics, it's obtuse to miscategorize such statistics.

    Dude. Splitting hairs a bit. When compared to true SABR stats.. WHIP compared to ERA+ or isolated slugging, etc? come on.

    ---Seems like he's got something going on. I've got work to do so I've got one eye on the game and the other on a spreadsheet, but it looked like he was yapping at Ramirez for a while after Ramirez was already walking away.
