I will make this short and sweet. I think we here at LL and USSM agree that our words are being ignored by the MSM (mainstream media) in almost all areas. So I think it's time that we here as a readership begin waging a war on sabermetrics against the MSM.
That is, when for instance Salk talks about getting Fielder to put butts in seats, we flood the call lines explaining how that doesn't work. Or when Baker talked about not signing Fielder equals accepting mediocrity, we reply linking to Dave's article about why the reasoning is plain wrong.
I'm sick and tired of the MSM completely ignoring the sabermetric community and not even taking the time to learn about it seriously. I thought we were a more knowledgeable fanbase as a whole, and yet we can't get people here outside of our sabermetric community to recognize it.
If people like Salk and Baker can have a voice that reaches the casual fan, I say we should have one too.
It's about time we fought back. What do you think?
Is it time to actively wage a sabermetric war against the MSM?
