Fielding versus Bullpen: Efficiency

My dad called the other afternoon to talk about the Brewers. He asked me a simple question: is there any one stat that I can use to explain the difference between the 2011 and 2012 Brewers. I hmm’d and haw’d for a bit, before saying,… [More]

John Axford and the Problem With Relievers
