So Rick Morrisey writes this. The Sox lead-in caused me to miss the Cubs commentary at the end.
Somehow Nate Silver, of Baseball Prospectus fame, writes this response to Morrisey at the former's Unfiltered weblog. I found this because I'm also a Royals fan, and few guys over there at stat hounds.
But what catches my eye is the cheap shot at the end by Silver. What gives?!
Still, it's very interesting to note that PECOTA has overestimated the Cubs over the 2003-07 period. Is it true that our guys haven't had the needed heart and grit? Has Cubs management been a bit over-addicted to stats, perhaps PECOTA?
