Joe Pos' guide to offensive stats, aka 'The first thing every new TC'er should read'

Joe Pos does one of the best jobs I've seen supporting the case for advanced stats. He explains some of the big ones and uses batting average as a case for why the traditional stats leave a lot to be desired. This article might be the clearest, best explanation I've seen -- not surprising considering it's from maybe the best baseball writer around. It should be required reading for TC membership h/t goes to BtBS.
