  1. Regression fail. You don’t want Alvarez’s BABIP to “regress.” Use a different word. Don’t try to force it.

  2. My good man, I think you are arguing semantics. Regression is not always negative. It is associated with negatives quite often, but in this case, as far as I know, the word usage is acceptable.

    Of course, if you have an English degree, I shall concede and edit.

  3. He ought to have a degree in statistics, too. Regression to the mean (e.g. career BABIP) goes both ways.

  4. Perhaps lester bangs idiocies will regress to the mean by end of season.

  5. I can’t help but link to this after your second sentence Jay29. (I don’t think Family Guy is that great, but this clip is grand) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=es8dJ7gMWQQ

  7. Would you take Walker for Dexter Fowler at the utility spot (12 team league H2H)

  8. You’re probably getting more playing time out of Walker, so in a standard 5×5 yeah, I’d take him. If it’s an OBP league then I’ll take Fowler though.

  9. I think you’re underrating Family guy. Scores very well on xESO, which is expected esoteric humor.

    Regression can be in either direction, but the standard definition sides with a moving back. But yes, it is semantics.

    Happy Father’s Day, everyone.

  11. Even a blind squirrel! I hope you snapped him up yesterday. I wish I could have. /Shakes fist at having so many weekly leagues.

  12. I’m a Futurama fan myself. And ARcher. Those are the best cartoons on TV right now.

    Then again, I’m also a Brony. So take whatever cartoon suggestions I make with a grain of salt.

  15. Come on guys. This is FanGraphs (well, RotoGraphs to be specific). We don’t need to resort to name calling and finger pointing.

    This isn’t Yahoo! Answers. We’re all friends here. Leave the snark at the door. Unless it’s self-deprecating. Then by all means, please share.

  16. Blind squirrel nailed Scherzer as well. Wish I hadn’t benched him!
