Spring training stats
Posted 30 March 2012 - 12:35 AM
This is probably less true for relief pitchers than anyone else, but I am having a hard time reading things about spring performances as being that relevant (from Parmelee to DeRosa). A: Game stats are not the whole picture with regard to spring training, and B: Spring training is not a good predictive tool for the season. This has been demonstrated before in studies about the matter.
It is fairly, well, stupid, to focus on spring training stats so thoroughly. This is not the Star Tribune's Twins section of barbarically stupid comments, man.
