Audio: Woody Paige Does NOT Read SandGraphs

Host of ESPN’s Around the Horn Tony Reali has — probably against his better judgment — made it known that he’s a reader of FanGraphs. In the following audio clip, sporting-type writers Michael Smith and Bomani Jones betray their own respective interests in the sort of advanced analysis provided by this site.

A person who doesn’t do that sort of thing is frequent Around the Horn guest, and columnist for The Denver Post, Woody Paige. Not only doesn’t Woody Paige read FanGraphs, he also doesn’t read our very secret sister site SandGraphs that’s totally secret.

Regard, from the Around the Horn‘s discussion on the Yankees’ acquisition of Ichiro Suzuki, on ESPN Audio:

I am outraged at SandGraphs power rankings last week: (1) Gypsum (2) Silica (3) Quartz???!!! Are you kidding me?!

I think you’re relying too heavily traditional stats; quartz has been getting really lucky in the early season (.487 Beauty Average per Beaches In Play), and is bound to regress

Expecting immediate regression is a fool’s folly. Quartz has proven to be a continuous outlier in the beaches in play standard.

The fact that uranium didn’t even make the list is outrageous. Sure it’s carried by monazite and zircon, by uranium literally powers the whole group though. Just look at the uranium content in Iraqi sand! And that’s some damn fine sand.

I don’t read SanGraphs either.

Baseball’s about grit, hustle, and passion for what’s right — not sandtistics.

If baseball’s about GRIT, how can you ignore sand???

Good thing he’s proud he ignores opposing viewpoints. Because if there is anything I look for in an analyst, it’s ignorance.
