First of all, this is all sounding redundant. The article sucks and the commenters suck. But this is really outstanding, I promise.
First, I love that Hoynes states as fact that Grady's batting average is "failing." Perhaps he meant to write, "falling." Um, let's hope. It's still silly.
Second, this piece smacks of a writer who is just now coming around to the idea that batting average is, in fact, overrated.
Third, just read the first comment. I mean, to equate someone saying, "Batting average is overrated," with someone saying, "Wins are overrated," well... Well done. Well done, indeed.
