Juan Pierre is well aware that he isn’t exactly a darling of those who use advanced statistics. He just has no idea who those people are.
The veteran outfielder was the subject of a feature by Marcus Hayes of the Philadelphia Daily News, during which he unleashed this gem:
“With all the computers, the cybergenics [sabermetrics], whatever they do, I think I rate the lowest possible in those things. The things I do don’t show up in box scores. Sacrifice bunting doesn’t make any sense to do. They don’t look at the guy going first to third or taking that extra bag.”
