Gary Cohen Jumps Into A Fight He Can't Win

Ah, Gary Cohen you should have asked me before you went and lambasted Sabermetrics during a recent New York Mets' broadcast.


Our friends at Amazin' Avenue have the details on what Cohen said, so I won't rehash it here. What I will do is say this -- it's a fight Gary never should have picked.


I'm not big on Sabermetrics, though I fully understand some of the new statistical analysis has tons of merit. It's just that arguing with a Sabermetrician about the usefulness of a particular stat is like arguing with a conservative right-wing Republican or a far left-wing Democrat.


You can't win, and you just end up feeling more aggravated for having tried. Sometimes, you are just better off keeping your opinion to yourself.
