Amazin' Avenue primer on Sabermetrics (specifically Average vs. betters stats)

3

I know it is probably sinful to point to the blog of a rival team, but this primer on batting average should be excellent reading for those of you (and you know who you are) who want to know what the heck the rest of us are talking about. It lays out in pretty plain language why batting average is an inferior stat and why there are better methods. I think it is a fantastic idea by Eric Simon over at Amazin' Avenue. Perhaps we could do similar posts.
