Peter here.....ummm, forgetting someone, Baseball Prospectus? I know your publication is based solely on stats........and I say YOU'RE MISSING OUT on the beauty of the game by looking at only stats rather than the human part of the game, the game that lives in our hearts. My heart. So sometimes it's tough for me to digest your view of the game that I love so much. But I DO know that you base your entire publication on stats...and that's good for so many baseball fans. So, hmmm, that's good with me, too.
And of course, Mike Lowell, third baseman for the 2007 Boston Red Sox, who meant so much to the Sox last year, is who I meant. The anchor of the left side at Fenway Park. Last year AND this......
