Van, Damn!

Good for Eric. Eric probably doesn't remember me, but we attended college together back in the Dark Ages, when you could get a pizza at Harvard Pizza for 99 cents. A good pizza, too, tasty with some orange soda.

Numbers are just one of the reasons fans love baseball. Peyton Manning set an NFL record this year throwing X touchdowns. We remember Hank Aaron (755), Ruth (714), and even Mays (660). Statistics are just ingrained as a huge part of the analysis of baseball.

I also appreciate statistics and agree that it helps a lot in our lives. Using it we can predict some events

Statistics help to understand some things... but the way those guys played can not be tell by numbers.
