Sabermetrics article needs review[edit]

A group of anon posters who appear to be trying to sell stat services and computer games made a series of vanity posts on the Sabermetrics article. I have reverted the article to its pre-anon form, but in the process I may have also eliminated some legitimate non-vanity edits. The same vanity posts have been made elsewhere, including Defense independent pitching statistics. Please review and edit Sabermetrics since I don't know the material well enough to judge the changes that are not obvious sales pitches. OverInsured 06:41, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Speaker at the 1989 Convention[edit]

I'm fairly certain that the speaker at the '89 Convention in Albany was not the pop-star, Bobby Brown, but rather this Bobby Brown.

Deletions of sabermetric statistics and projections[edit]

Those who are interested in Sabermetrics may be interested in the ongoing discussion re deletion of urls that include projections of Bill James and others, as well as of other baseball stats, which can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Baseball#Deletions_by_Tecmobowl_of_hundreds_of_baseball_urls_w.2Funique_information.3B_failure_to_discuss.3B_edit_warring . --Epeefleche 20:51, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

SABRE[edit]

About 1971, I recall a report by Heywood Hale Broun on the CBS Evening News about an on organization called the Society of American Baseball Research Enthusiasts (SABRE). I am quite sure it had an "E" and I am quite sure that the word was "enthusiasts". Why can't I find any mention of this name?  Randall Bart   Talk  02:09, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Prominent members[edit]

The Background section names "some of the more prominent members". I think this should be expressed historically so that no update is necessary when someone dies or permits membership to lapse. Is there any other principle at stake? --P64 (talk) 19:29, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
