I have the utmost respect for the numbers guys who say (and actually believe) that stats are a tool in the toolbox--that they help you see the game in a more three-dimensional-way. But nerds, understand this: When you laugh off things like sacrifice bunts, you sound just as moronic as the guys who think advanced stats are stupid.
