Lincecum's performance > Halladay's, says NY Times


If you haven't read this article, I strongly recommend that you do. The blogger of "Bats" in the NY Times argues that Lincecum's performance last night was both better and more valuable than Halladay's no-hitter.  Not only is it an interesting point made in an interesting way, but we should click on it just to support more mainstream discussions of sabr-ey stuff and just different ways of looking at performance than the blunt tool of "hits." 

Also of interest is the author's update in the sidebar, addressing lots of concerns that the Reds offense was better than the Braves, as witnessed by the Reds' scoring the most runs in the NL and the Braves scoring 5th. The author makes a convincing case that that's not really relevant at this point of the season and with a post-season roster.
