Sabermetrics

I have been following this blog from about the beginning of the season and have grow increasingly more interested in sabermetrics and how and when to use each stat. However, I only have a rough understanding of how to apply and what the different stats mean. I was wondering where a beginner, such as myself, would start when trying to build a rudimentary knowledge of how these stats are calculated as well as applied. Anything helps. I would also like to note that the moderators of this site so an excellent job. They have, from what I have seen, only written articles with interesting and insightful information. I am a Mariners fan but I have visited other sites similar to this one and Lookout Landing is far and away the best that I have seen.
