Except that all data is not good data. It's just as important, if not moreso, to be able to tell what data is useful and how to distinguish it from what is not. Worrying about stats like pitcher wins, saves, errors, there's a reason nobody takes them seriously. Because they're just bad stats. They don't tell anything useful that you can't find from better, stats.
