I have not seen anyone post about this and I wanted to know if anyone else had seen it. On the science channel there was a show on this week called the science of baseball. It focused on sabermetrics with Bill James. About half of the show was him talking about his different theories to winning games and building a team.
Some of the more interesting thoughts he spoke about were, A sac bunt is never the best option, Stealing is never the best option. He also spoke about, winshares, similarities, park factors, run potential probabilities, and era factors. And at the end he gave his all-time team.
3B Michael Jack Schmidt
SS Honus Wagner
LF Teddy Ballgame
RF Babe Ruth
SP Roger Clemens
The way he ended the show was talkiing about these players. His 2 best hitters ever are Ted and Babe, with the slight edge to Ruth. He never directly said but, when he talked about Clemens he hinted that Clemens has had the most distinguished career ever in baseball and it sounded like he thinks Clemens is the best player ever. It was definately the best pitcher and it could have been just that.
If yall get a chance it is really worth watching.
