Those Darn Stat Geeks

Just enjoying the Sandberg Game DVD today. NBC's Bob Costas said during his broadcast of the game that walks and on-base percentage are the two most overlooked stats in the game.

He's also noted how the park effects at Busch Stadium depress the Cardinals' home run numbers.

This may scandalize some folks who consider Costas as a defender of all that is traditional and pure in baseball. Who'd have thought that he'd be promulgating this kind of Moneyball stat-geekery way back in 1984?
