Thanks to reader Bryan for this nice little nugget:
On Saturday's FOX broadcast of Mets vs. Giants:"Offerman is a guy who can clearly still hit. His numbers don't indicate that this year."
This is really the essence of the problem, isn't it? Pundits making statements about the game which are in direct contradiction to actual fact. Of course, it is very rare, and exciting, for one of them to immediately acknowledge how wrong he is -- in essence, to do FJM's work for us.
(FTR: Offerman has had an OPS above .716 once since 2000, and that was in 172 AB with the Twinkies last year.)
