More On The SA 

Given the feedback on my creation, the SA (see yesterday's post), it seems I should clarify: the SA is not a measure of the average abilities of an offensive player over the course of a season; rather, it simply counts the number of times a hitter has sucked. It was pointed out to me, rightly, that in 1997 Jay Buhner certainly did not Suck Ass, as he hit 40 homers with over 100 walks. Excellent numbers by any measure. It just so happens, though, that the number of times in 1997 that he, according to my definition, "Sucked Ass," puts him among baseball's all time leaders for a single season.

Sammy Sosa has posted three of the top ten SA seasons. Sammy does not suck any ass whatsoever.
