So Chris Liss (coupled with an annoying refusal to give me Alberto Callaspo) has been saying a number of things I want to respond to. The debate begins in my last post 'Intuition v Quants' and continues in the comments area, and then on to Chris' post on Rotosynthesis.
Chris has a number of objections, but the one I'd first like to tackle is his complaint that baseball is not a math game, and that since a baseball season is "organic", or non-repeatable (2010 only happens once) all of our projections will be 'wrong'.
So Bill and I have a tendency to get into minor arguments over most players. Especially if some of those players are on my team, and some of those players are on his team.
