"The stat people are taking over"


SI’s Jon Heyman on Twitter: “not that theres anything wrong with it, but the stat people are taking over [the Yankees]: johnson .426 OBP, vazquez 1.02 WHIP.”

Call me crazy, but if recognizing on-base percentage and WHIP is the harbinger of the “stat people” taking over, the stat people took over twenty years ago. Maybe longer.
