  1. You know I was reading through this topic again. It's kinda funny. FIPhillie: RYAN HOWARD WAS LEADING THE LEAGUE IN HR AND RBI! Person with brain A: He was having a horrible year and RBI are useless when evaluating an individual! FIPhille: THAT'S RIDICULOUS RBI IS WHAT EVERYONE ON ESPN TALKS ABOUT AND SO IT MUST BE IMPORTANT HOW CAN IT POSSIBLY BE A USELESS STAT?! Person with brain B: Because it depends on the rest of the team getting on in front of him. FIPhillie: NO THEY'RE STILL IMPORTANT I WILL NOT REGARD THIS LOGIC BECAUSE I AM STUBBORN AND YOU'RE ALL JUST BEING HOMERS!! Person with brain C: No, really...in order to get RBI he has to have RBI opportunities, which depend on other people not named Ryan Howard. FIPhillie: YEAH RIGHT YOU'RE ALL STUPID I CAN'T ACCEPT THIS BECAUSE IT GOES AGAINST WHAT I ORIGINALLY LEARNED WHILE PLAYING THE GAME AND YOU'RE ALL NECKBEARD STATFAGS WHO NEVER PLAYED BASEBALL! It reminds me of that scene from Family Guy with the Mule. NO KEVIN WASN'T IN FOOTLOOSE! NOPE. EEEHHHAWWW!!!! EEEEHHAAAWWW!! I just let the stats speak for themselves from now on, since that's all that matters to you poindexter. Fastest ever to 200 homers. Shattered the mark 3rd alltime in HR per plate appearance.
  2. using a half season of ballpark data isn't very good. CBP has a 1.214 HR factor since opening. Compared to Safeco's .903 since '01 Oh it's perfectly acceptable to use this season's stats when this thread is entirely about this season. Anyway... HR's home-away: Utley - 11-9 Howard - 10-13 Ibanez - 9-15 Werth - 11-9 Soooo Yeah. It must be the ball park. Home-Away 41-46 Unless they changed something about the park since last year, it means nothing. Stats only matter when they are convenient I guess.

  4. Fastest man ever to 200 Homers. He sucks.
  5. I can only assume you're sitting there with fingers in your ears going "Lalalalala I can't hear you!". You may be giving him too much credit. I may not know much about the FIPhillie outside of what I've read in this topic, but he seems to really think that RBI are an important statistic in evaluating a player, and when presented with the precise reason why they AREN'T, he basically just laughed and actually implied that the reasoning doesn't lead to that conclusion. So, I don't think he's being a stubborn homer so much as he's being really stupid, and failing to grasp logical concepts. A guy with a nickname "TimeVORP" definitely has learned most of his baseball acumen simulating games on XBOX rather than playing the sport himself. Bravo to the stat nerd. I bet you were really popular in the marching band too.
  6. Yeah you guys are so right. A player with 50RBI is a better run producer than someone with 150. RBI mean nothing. Meaningless stat! Same thing with homeruns. That's right. YEAH! Wooo. That must be that homerism right there coming out. As for Philly being "Pathetic" The franchise being "pathetic". That's all well and good. Let's talk about the about the "fanbase" you have down there in Miami if we want to start trading insults. Now THAT's pathetic. You started the insult trading, or do you not remember the "15 fans" comment. And, funny thing is... this fanbase has seen expansion, a fire sale, a "market adjustment" and two world series... and still has a fanbase and stadium on the way... all within 16-17 years. Obviously MLB and Miami would have to think there's more than 15 fans out there... And yes, it's widely recognized that Philly :: Championships as Oil :: Water, but hey, even a broken clock is right twice a day. Laws of averages say Philly had to be good enough at least once every few generations I kinda look at the marlins 2 championships as "If a tree falls in a forest and there is no one there to hear it, did it make a sound" Playing off your broken clock deal.
  7. I guess you can say the park has something to do with it. But really, he was on pace for 60 homeruns. There has to be some thought of roids. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/stats/parkfactor probably not the ballpark. The fairest ballpark in all of the land as of mid season. LOL at roids.
  8. I'd say that you're giving all Phillie fans a bad name, but they're Phillie fans. I guess you're just cementing their name. Nothing to refute what I wrote I guess. Yup, terrible fans. Leading the league in attendance.
  9. http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/standings :thumbup Is this your argument for Chris Coste in the ASG? He's not even on the Phillies anymore slappy.

  11. Yeah you guys are so right. A player with 50RBI is a better run producer than someone with 150. RBI mean nothing. Meaningless stat! Same thing with homeruns. That's right. YEAH! Wooo. That must be that homerism right there coming out. Oh my god. Here, I'll try it slower. They aren't meaningless, but when you're trying to measure 2 INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS who are both having good seasons, why would you use RBIs which depend on who else from their team gets on base? I mean you can grasp the concept we're talking about here, right? That the same player batting 5th for the Dodgers or RedSox is going to have more RBIs than if he's batting 5th for the Royals or Nationals? You still need to hit the ball dopey. check howards numbers with RISP last season and get back to me.

  13. Isn't Ibanez injured? I figured he wasn't going to the All-Star game because he is injured. When you're 37 and ending up on the All-Star team for the first time, you'd be surprised how hard you manage to return in time. He's came off the DL last night. I live in Philly, and I didn't even know that. Shows how much I hate the Phillies. You should move to Florida. You should come down to Florida as well, I'll make sure you have a great time. I lived in Miami for close to 6 years when I was attending college down there and after. Might have stayed if there was a venue/atmosphere worth watching games at. Sitting in a 50,000 seat stadium with only 300 other people in the Miami summer just isn't that appealing to me for some reason.
  14. Yeah. I'm being a homer. AND LOL at RBIs being a worthless stat. Last season was the first time EVER. The first time EVER and I will repeat one more time The first time EVER that the HR and RBI leader at the AS break didnt make the team. Your Uggla comparisson is a putrid one at best. 2nd for a 2nd basemen in HR and RBI... Whoopdie friggen do. I'm talking the whole league. You know what makes Chase Utley so important? He's a 2B who can hit like he can. The position is extremely important. If he played 1B, he wouldn't be an All-Star starter all the time. And yes, it was the first time ever (I assume, I'm not looking that up). That's because it was the first time someone managed to hit so many homers while having such a sh*tty season. And RBI is a worthless stat for individuals, it's based on other players as much as it's based on the player hitting. The Phillies were a damn good team last year, and as is with damn good teams, they had a lot of baserunners ahead of Howard. Howard had a ton of RBI ops. Last year, to that point, Howard was 2nd in PA with men on and 2st in PA's with RISP. Why dont you look up his avg with risp last season. You know.. The ABs that count for a homerun hitter. and lol again at your nonsensical conclusion that RBIs dont matter. The only things nonsensical have been your last few posts. You're grasping at straws. You lost all credibility when you decided that Howard should have been an All-Star last season. Whatever you say pal. Of course everyone here will agree with you as the 15 other marlins fans will come circle the wagons shortly. You're wrong, I am right that's the bottom line. You're just a disgruntled Phillies hater. Nothing more and nothing less. Keep looking at the game with those teal specs and those sabermetrics.
