Here's a "transcript" of sorts from a post by snake222 in the 5/18 GameDay thread:

snake222 wrote:
It was pretty funny listening to both of them talk about Shoewizard and his complex stats…

Here’s part of the exchange (bottom of the 8th, 2 outs…Qualls is facing Magglio Ordonez...Sutton tried to bring up defensive efficiency (DER) last inning with 2 outs, but Byrnes grounded out on 1 or 2 pitches )...

Sutton: (sarcastic tone) Defensive efficiency…percentage of balls put in play that are turned into outs...0 and 1 the count…feel bad…big fan, Shoewizard…I know he was very excited to hear your reaction to that…

Grace: (jokingly…at least I think) I mean…what’s the point of creating(?) this stat…that the Tigers are twelfth and the Diamondbacks are fourth?

Sutton: I think it speaks to athleticism.

Grace: Ok…deficient (sic)…defensive efficiency…I just uh…have I told you that Magglio Ordonez is a really good hitter? (or something like that)

Sutton: I’m right there with you.

Grace: He’s probably way up there in offensive efficiency…

Sutton (laughing) One and one the count.

Grace: Goodness gracious…I’m being bombarded by these meaningless stats.

Sutton: What’s his VORP, though?

Grace: That he can hit.

Sutton laughs again.

A pitch or two later Ordonez grounds out to Qualls…

Sutton: Now that was an efficient play…excellent job…

Grace: Fourth in the league these Diamondbacks…just ask Daron and Shoooewizard!


It may not be verbatim; but it certainly conveys the essence of the conversation... Very Happy

Same guy from Moneyball, I assume?

Cool.
