On the backlash against statheads 

One of the side effects of the success of "Moneyball" is a backlash against the sabermetric crowd by the "traditionalists"...those who think clutch hitting exists, RBIs are meaningful, and that the stats don't tell you as much as watching a player does. Baseball Prospectus has a very good piece on that trend, in which they try to de-bunk some of the myths about the statheads, and respond to some of their critics.

Part of the free section of BP, and an excellent read...
