I just read a post from a guy who wrote, "Suppan Sucks," and it got me thinking.
Now I'm relatively new to this site. But...please, hear me out:
Can someone on this site please look beyond the numbers for your arguments?
I enjoy the sabermetrics discussions as much as the next guy, but spitting out all of these numbers just proves that you're a bigger baseball dork than the next guy.
Suppan sucks? Seriously? You post this on a Cardinal blog site And you try to back it up with STATS, STATS, AND MORE STATS.
Here are the statistics that I will remember about Jeff Suppan as a StL Cardinal:
- ZERO stints on the disabled list.
- 191 innings pitched per year.
- 1 2006 NLCS MVP trophy
- 1 NLCS game 7 win over Roger Clemens.
- 1 World Series Championship ring.
He may not be worth >$10 million per year, but he most definitely does not suck.
Seriously. Are we WATCHING the same game? Look beyond the numbers. It's much more fun that way.
