I had intended to link this earlier, but you need to read this open letter from Baseball Prospectus to Murray Chass. Chass disgraced himself in a recent NY Times column — no matter where you fall on the stats/non-stats spectrum — and I’m glad BP called him on it, dispelling some of the myths surrounding “statheads” in the process.

Reds (and Blues), on the other hand, has a bit of a different perspective.
