    Brian,

    breaking down Political Party and Stat preference is brilliant.

    The question on traditional stats v. advanced stats left me in a quandary. Traditional stats, to my senior citizen eyes, are still easier to compute and relate to. However, Brian has done a great job of convincing me that advanced stats are more relevant—except for UZR which is still too subjective as I understand it. A nod must go to Joe Poznaski, too.
    I agree with Peter Hyatt on your brilliant break down of pol. party and stats.

    Absolutely fantastic idea! I second everything norme said. I still hold that traditional stats matter a good deal, but I am learning the value of certain advanced stats, which still sounds too snooty. UZR is growing on me. FDP-Wins, not so much.

    Also, here’s one person’s take on stats.
