I ask only for fun: Has the Moneyball crowd yet trademarked the term "Meh?" How about "ad hominem?" Or "straw man?" Look, I love advanced stats. Readers know I use them. I even backed WAR way back when it was VORP. But the amount of groupthink that occurs within this group flies completely in the face of two other favorite terms, "objective" and "intellectual." True objectivity -- and I'm not claiming purity here -- comes from, duh, an open mind. Maybe there's a REASON closers pitch the ninth.
