Meaningless Stat?


Now cruising through the posts there is often a "this is the worst stat" line someone might say. For instance some debate goes into the Quality start stat, or the Win loss stat for pitchers, which was mentioned after Loshe's last start. One that I hear in every game I watch is so and so VS a team.

On one hand a team regardless of the pitcher might have a certain approach to hitters regardless of year as long as the coaching staff stays the same.

On the other hand how is it you can say for example Ludwick hits Braves pitchers well historically? Ok he might have, but when the whole rotation might change does it matter? I'm not talking about playing well at stadiums cause I agree with that. It's more about how they hit against a team. Or maybe they say a pitcher Joe Blanton for example has always pitched well against a team through a career..Not a few starts but years as was mentioned in his last start. The same argument applies, that the Cardinals have changed many players since Blanton was an A, and even since he has come to Philly. Again this discussion is more about team than 1 on 1. We all know there are certain pitchers who don't fare well over time against certain guys...ie. Perez and AP

 

Just something I have noticed watching baseball that I think can be completly irrelevant, but maybe I'm wrong.
