  1. I'm not familiar with the defensive efficiency stat. But like you said, it's six games. I'll start to worry if it's still the same case at thirty games.

  2. OK, OK, I know that we're all guilty of overusing "the first sign of spring" thing. But here it is, the truly, TRULY, can't miss it sure thing first sign of spring.

    Ready for it? Here it comes:

    • Someone needs to design a sabermetrically-ready logo (similar to the /facepalm Picard-picture meme) that is the Superman-logo surrounded by two smaller Ss on either side. Then just post that instead of Picard and voila!
