I think this comment is worth bringing up to the top ...
One of the first big features at the BP site was a column - I think by Gary Huckabay - that followed each of Peter's "Diamond Notes" and parsed it down, checking each of his conclusions and holding him 'accountable.' Now, Peter gets big points for being big enough to forgive the attention and even bigger points for learning that some of the old-school BS was just that, BS. No one is going to call Peter a sabermetrician, but I think Peter knows smart when he sees it, whether it's Gary or Billy or J.P.
In that respect, maybe we'll make the "Phil Rogers Watch" a little feature here ... or maybe not. I don't have the time or the heart. Anyone want the job?
Even better, I'd like someone to check MY work. I know most of you are BP Premium subscribers and read UTK. I'll give a completely uncensored weekly slot to someone who'll do a credible job of checking my work; a "Will Watch" to hold me as accountable as I would like everyone else held.
I'm not sure if I belong in the same sentence as John Manuel or Peter Gammons or even Phil Rogers. I have the fortune and misfortune of running before I crawled, so that my mistakes weren't made writing for the Coxsackie Gazzette, but in full view of a national audience. Thanks for helping me learn.
