Video: GM's Corner: Week 3

Jim Bowden and GM Corner are back with a roundtable on sabermetrics, featuring , as you'd expect, Theo Epstein, Jon Daniels, Justin Upton (!), my boss Dave Cameron, Kevin Goldstein, and, hey, it wouldn't be a sabermetrics roundtable without... you guessed it... Dayton Moore. No, that is not a joke. Among Dayton's favorite stats are, and this is a quote as close as I can remember "runs created, runs scored... it's about runs scored and runs driven in." The whole thing is worth watching, although mostly for unintentional comedy. Watch all the way to the end for pure Bowden-y comedy.

Catcher Throwing Isn't That Big of a Deal

18

Nice article for the Wall Street Journal by Dave Cameron. Here's a nice quote: "Over the last five years, the percentage of runners thrown out on the bases only has a .15 correlation with run prevention, which suggests there's almost no impact on a team's chances of winning (a correlation of 1 represents a direct relationship, whereas 0.0 shows there's no relationship at all).... So don't worry if your team's catcher throws to second like a nine-year-old. The best way to stop the opposing team from scoring is to avoid putting runners on base in the first place."
