Is Utley the Best Player in Baseball?
I got an interesting e-mail last week from John Dewan‘s Stat of the Week:
If you’re not into sabermetrics — if you think these crazy new stats are the work of the devil — then clicking the link probably is not for you. If you love sabermetrics — if you think they explain everything in baseball — then Lord knows what your reaction will be after reading Dewan’s take on Utley vs. Albert Pujols. If you’re like me and in between on sabermetrics — they’re valuable to use, but they’re not the Gospel — you should find it interesting.
Also interesting, Dewan had Jimmy Rollins as the third-best player in baseball over the last five years.
