Shysterball linked to this over at Sons of Steve Garvey. It's a pretty amusing little back-and-forth that makes ol' "Psycho" seem like his nickname should be "Ignoramus." An excerpt: Collins: I was talking last inning about Gordon Beckham and his OPS. OPS, some people just kind of gloss over that. But it is fairly indicative of a quality player. You look in the history of baseball, you look at the on-base percentage plus slugging percentage, and without fail, the top ten players are all the elite of the elite in the history of major league baseball. And I know it's college baseball, but Gordon Beckham last year as a college player, middle infield, shortstop, an OPS of 1.323. He had an on-base percentage of over five hundred percent. Five hundred! Slugging percentage over eight hundred. To put that in perspective, Albert Pujols is off to a great start this year. Just a great start with St. Louis. His OPS right now is 1.159. Two hundred percentage points lower than what Gordon Beckham did last year as a collegian. Lyons: See, that's why I gloss over it, because I don't know what 1.300 means. It's a number.
