#3, I am talking out of turn a bit, but I do know there have been some discussions about getting some more stats stuff onto TV such as MLB Network. Not sure what stage those plans have reached, but I think it's likely something like that will materialize in the future.

Sorry-- I realize this probably isn't the thread for this, but I can't help myself. Anyway, if you look at the WAR leaderboard for the AL, King Felix, CC, Jered Weaver, and the Twinanos (Liriano and Pavano-- and yes, I did just come up with that stupid nickname myself) are all pretty much inseperable. Obviously, there's still a lot of time. And yes, I understand that by a lot of FIP measurements, King Felix is clearly better, but I'm not sure that's the best way to measure pitching, either. Sometimes, maybe even MOST of the time, it's right to pitch to contact, and divorcing that from pitching is a bad idea. Plus, I don't think most people here would consider Cliff Lee a viable candidate for AL Cy, but he's at or near the top by every FIP method. And as far as the MVP votes go, the top players by the "traditional" stats are also the leaders by sabermetric stats (with Adrian Gonzalez being the one notable name missing from traditional stats). So, again, I don't really see that as having much of an effect on the race. Again-- sorry for hijacking the thread.

Sean, congrats, and I can't wait to see more of your contributions to baseball! Oh-- and thanks for getting oWAR and dWar back up!

I've seen MLBN quote OPS+ and ERA+. The revolution is happening...slowly. The AL CY Young and MVP votes will be the true test.

Sean Forman getting some face time on The Network. Also, thanks to Sean, we know there will be some new "Prime 9" eps.

Now MLBN just needs a short Sabermetrics segment once a week on "MLB Tonight" so someone like Sean can come in and inform the viewer (and analysts) on reasons for considering advanced statistics instead of merely relying on non-adjusted counting stats. Though I fear Harold Reynold's head would eventually explode.
