A couple hours ago on Baseball Tonight, while talking about how successful the Brewers have been since Corey Hart came off the DL:
Monday, June 6, 2011
Their runs are up. Their OPS (pause) which I absolutely love... (pause) is up high. (pause) That OPS is the biggest stat you will ever find in the game of baseball.
Bobby Valentine, tastefully explaining OPS to the "alls I care about is batting average and pitching wins" crowd: That "OPS-" on base plus slugging, in case you were wondering.
Karl Ravech, a man more than familiar with Krukie's buffoonery: John had that on his card.
So they keep their talking points on 3" x 5" index cards. I think that's pretty cool actually. They can't script it like they do on that travesty of a show Sportscenter has become since there are so many live updates, so they just write shit down and talk about it when they get around to talking about it. I respect Kruk 2% more than I did yesterday because of that fact.
I've never seen a card so full of information for you. That's some good research.
Kruk: Yeah I didn't actually write all this down. Someone gave it to me.
Well with any luck, interns will be writing down information about FIP and WAR for Kruk no later than 2020.
