Last year Jose Valentin's batting average+slugging on pitches outside the strike zone is .052, Brian Daubach was .042.

Some other intesting data in here, and I'll add as I get it together.

Just when you think Bill James is rational, you remember his Craig Biggio obession....

James got creamed in cross examination by Alan Dershowitz in the moot court trial of Pete Rose tonight on ESPN.

That was something else ... I thought James was going to walk off the stand.

Career .380 OBP, 80% stolen base success rate, great defensively, very versatile. What's not to like?

Yeah he did but it wasn't about his work in Baseball stats but about what he has stated in his books about the Doud report.

The new red book has one more tidbit, the Sox were seventh in AL in fielding % and sixth in errors committed but 12 in unearned runs allowed with 82, 11 placed Devil Rays and Yankees allowed 72 and Red Sox,9 th, had 62 cross the plate. The Sox made errors at some pretty bad times last year.
