He finally did it. Called the 2005 White Sox a very good team and the 2006 White Sox a great team.

I guess they all will eventually come around, apart from ESPN. :bandance:

Merely stating the obvious.

Who is this guy and why should we care?

Are we linking his site simply because he claims to be a baseballsavant or does he actually have some track record of success?

:dunno:

He's actually a very astute observer of all things baseball. His scouting on the draft is first rate and his insight into the 29 major league teams who I don't follow closely is well above average.

Plus, he actually responds to email and has posted on this board, as Baseball_Savant.

Anyone who posts Pythagorean Standings on his blog deserves serious consideration.

I am willing to state without equivocation that the 1927 Yankees were not half-bad. And the 1985 Bears? Very, very good.

Now watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat . . .

We have a few lopsided wins so now we're a great team. Then scroll down past our article and you'll read that the savant calls the Cubs the favorites to win the WS if they can keep the pitching healthy. What a bunch of doofuses.

Savant has been calling the White Sox a very good team for quite awhile, but to now realize before than the ESPN idiots and most sportswriters that the White Sox are a great team. For me that counts for something.

Not me...

:dunno:

I couldn't care less, honestly. I don't need clarification on my team. I'll judge them for myself.

And they're a damn good team.
