For two years most of us, me included ragged on Brian Sabean for acquiring Renteria. 18.5 million for two years. Are you kidding me. People would talk about his clutch performances and the response was usually - too small a sample, etc etc etc. And then this. Unreal.
Baseball is a statistician's dream. There are so many great ways to crunch and analyse the numbers. There is so much one can glean from those numbers.
But it is also about things that numbers just cannot expalin. Why a guy 13 years after winning a WS can rise up and hit TWO game winning HR's when he hit THREE HR's all season.
Thanks Giants. I never thought I'd actually see this day. And thanks Edgar. You were worth every penny.
