Sabermetrics vs Traditional Stats; Which is better in evaluating talent?




I wanted to see for myself so put together a little 3 part challenge. 5 players (anonymous) from each position. One question giving their saber stats and one question giving their traditional stats. I asked fans to rank each one on who they think is best..Check it out, its getting some really good feedback.

Here is Part 1 (pitchers, catchers and 1B) Part 1

and here is part 2 (2B, 3B and SS) Part 2

Part 3 will be released tomorrow morning and I will post the link here as a reply if anyone is interested. I will evaluate all the results once I close the challenge (sometime next week) and the results will be posted next weekend.

Some random stats will be obvious who they are and others will not. All I ask is that you dont look up players to see who they are. That defeats the entire purpose!

Thanks for participating!
