Bleacher Report Versus Anyone For Pete's Sake


We all know if you want in depth, justifiable, direct, intelligent sports writing, you go to Bleacher Report where you will find top of the line sports writers who speak nothing but truth and logic.

Have they left yet? Okay, now its time to expose Bleacher Report for what it is, a lie. A lie which has some how tricked google into thinking that articles on there are news (check the news feed). I was on Bleacher Report for some time wondering where these writer pull these ideas from. What was even worse was the people who comment on these "works of art," I threw up a little in my mouth when I wrote that. There was 2 types of commentators: The ones who logic for why they think your favorite teams sucks is because the are stupid and don't know what they are doing, or the the ones who use advanced metrics to tell you that their favorite teams hitters are better than yours when hitting with a runner on 2nd with less then 2 out in May, at night, 4 days after it rained in Cleveland, 34.013948 hours after Obama makes a presidential address, and on a Tuesday. I single handily crushed the hopes and aspirations of a Giants fan who practiced the art of "advanced metrics." He would constantly raved about the Giants, blamed the Giants injuries for the dbacks success and try to pass Freddy Sanchez as a great player. He on several occasions said that the Giants and Diamondbacks have very similar offenses and the Giants held a slight edge. He used his crazy language of long numbers and multiple periods to justify his claims. We are talking about a man who used Sabermetrics to say Justin Upton and Freddy Sanchez where basically the same hitter. I almost peed my pants when he said that. He constantly on multiple occasion talked about how batting average is incredibly misleading in certain situations (I entirely agree, I believe OBP is way, way, way more important) yet he always mentioned Freddy Sanchez's batting average whenever I would question his actual worth. Freddy Sanchez has a very good career batting average of .297, but only has a career OBP of .335 which is average, nothing so special, I also pointed out that he only has a 12.3 career oWAR (turning the stats against him) which compared to Upton is 9.6 for a player who played in 325 less games. I am interested what people out side of the BR think out it, since you can probably tell by now, I think it is awful. Bleacherreport_medium
