Sometimes a player hits age 39, misses a few games, and gets written off prematurely.

He wasn't that bad last year. Only played 100 games, but everything else was on the same pace as this year.

You look at a guy's batting average, see that he hit .327 or so, while averaging 3 ABs per game for 125 games, and you think to yourself.... what if I batted this guy 500 times a year? Next thing you know, you're Texas/Toronto, etc. and you've signed him for 4 years, times a ridiculous amount. It's Billy Beane ball, for those who don't know what that means

Are these all guys like Burrell who qualified with SF but would not with TB or with the 2 combined? (Too many PAs).

In 1923, he played only 107 games, got only 487 PA, still led the NL in batting wins, with 5.2.

I'm not sure I get it... I agree that some stats are useless or can be made to show what whatever the poster wants them to... but I don't see anything wrong with this. It's a pretty straightforward and pretty good post...

3. The Phillies had 0 players fall within the 200-350 PA range that Steve specified.

They were the only team this season to not have any batters fall within this range.
