  1. So then the question becomes:

    Who’s produced more hits, the RZA or the BZA?

  2. The BZA…I’m down with it.

    Seems like a guy who puts up 8.6 WAR, even if he’s already peaked, should be better than CHONE or ZiPS say. But, well, they don’t account for joy.

  3. Carson, are there any projection systems for a player’s joyosity moving forward?

  4. + closest to the perfect 5-tool player last year:

    And that graphic’ll make you pretty happy too.

  5. This is the wheelhouse Cistulli. Like the best Guided by Voices songs, I wanted it to keep going, if only just a little longer.

  6. This might, arguably, be the greatest moment for this website. I wish Jesus was alive to see this.

  7. To those who doubt Zobrist, he’s a very big guy- his capability for power is not a fluke.

  8. Loving this series of articles.

  9. Andy, I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that’s obviously the biggest question facing our generation. There’s health care and then, a little bit above it, player joy projections.

  10. Of course, without your violent gesture, I might not have been inclined to lean Zobrist’s way.

    “I did not come to bring peace, but a sword”: Jesus of Nazareth or Sandy Kazmir? Hard to say.

  11. As something of a transcendentalist myself, Carson, I’m REALLY digging all the Emerson in your stuff.

    Oh, yeah, and your writing’s pretty good.

  12. The GZA’s got that clumsy flow (that’s a good thang thang)

    Comment by Joeyheynow — January 26, 2010 @ 5:20 pm

  13. I am BZA, king of kings! Look upon my dingers, ye mighty, and despair!

    Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

    I’m more of a fisticuffs kind of guy.

  14. Come on, guys.. do your wikipedia homework. It’s Zorilla, like the bozilla and he gets his marching orders from Christ. He’s on a strong dose of the God stuff, and that’s how he rolls..

  15. Carson, I don’t know if you realize this but somehow you managed to combine my two favorite loves in wu tang and baseball, I would have bet against this ever happening.

    I don’t even know what to say, this is revolutionary.

  16. This is the pinnacle of baseball writing. Long live the BZA!

  17. Jesus, I used to despise all of Carson’s posts. Somewhere along the way, I felt neutral and now I actually like them. It’s been some sort of subconcious shift; I let my defenses down.

  18. I always give my own comments thumbs up.

  19. The Z thing is the truth.

  20. Um can mrs. zobrist be invited to the joy parade?

    Comment by TOlmsted — January 27, 2010 @ 1:00 am

  21. I’m not sold on that being an organic human being

    Comment by Bob — January 27, 2010 @ 8:33 am

  22. Umm Julianna looks good. Like really good. Like forbidden apple good. Here’s maybe my favorite pic of them:

    Zobot is the coolest.

  23. Amazing post.

    I agree with CedarA above, I didn’t think I’d ever see Wu-Tang and sabermetrics together.

    And it was hilarious.

  24. Are you talking about the wife, or the husband?

    BenZo seems to be the anti Joe Hardy of our day. What sort of deal did he make with his Savior?

  25. Wow. So much Joy!
