    That is a rather one-sided and amusing take on what was transpiring in posts here. "Snarky" means snippy, sniping, defensive and nasty. If one revisits the actual content of message exchanges [as I did last night], one might come up with a different conclusion.

    I said what "he percieved as being..." I wasn't even talking about my own perception, necessarily.
    I was there for all of it...and much of what involved Matt was very snarky. Not on this thread as much, but on others in which Matt visited. I wasn't even talking about you - why so defensive?

    I am not being defensive at all. Absent your post to which I alluded, I would have steered clear altogether. However, [and yes, you did state "what he perceived" in your observation] the conclusion of the statement suggested that those in the opposition were "whining." Such was very much NOT the case. I replied only because I was among the naysayers, who neither whined nor generalized SNARKY upon sabermetricians generally.

    Like I said, you were not in my mind when I was thinking of the people he had issues with. I know the two of you went at it from time to time, but you always came with research and thoughtfulness and statistics. He never had a problem with that. You never poo-pooed the value of statistics or data themselves. Those are the people he had a problem with.

    SABR MATT, please come back dude, just ignore the fackers who annoy you. You offer a lot to this site. Us traditionalists learned something from you.
    I think it's totally unfair to imply I have a small bias towards Cobb. My bias towards Cobb is extremely significant! Was made huge by years of systematic abuse, sitting in front of a microfilm reader at the Palo Alto Library!

    It's one thing to lose to Babe. But to Honus? A fellow dead-baller, who clearly lost on the numbers to Ty, but some want to give him the win with a hypothetical??? I don't think so!! You're off the reservation, Kemosabe.

    Has anyone heard from SABR MATT in the past couple of years? I've been away for a while and was sure disappointed to find he is no longer around here.

    More likely, Matt's just really busy. Isn't he university assistant professor?

    Did he ever share his formula with us? I am thinking, no.
