each "game" is about a week long, and during that week every point that is scored and every assist that is made is totaled up, whoever has the most points, or in turnovers case the least turnovers, gets a point in that category for the week and i think there are a total of 9 categories, so whoever does the best in the most categories wins the matchup for the week, does that make sense?
bud selig announced during the ceremony tonight that the designated hitter of the year award will forever be called the edgar martinez award, in my opinion he has to be a hall of famer and i will miss him playing every day
Postseason stats should be counted. If someone puts forth the effort, they should always get credit.
the only problem is that they are individual stats, not team stats, so that means a teams record should have nothing to do with who has the most homeruns or the most hits which would be increased if they got into the playoffs
He's right about postseason not counting for career stats (which is beyond retarded). Apparently Baseball hasn't gotten the memo that people actually play those games too, and should reap the benefits. Even college football counts postseason stats.
My examples aren't dumb, I was just showing that your logic was flawed. It still is.
first of all adding playoff stats to season stats is just plain stupid because they are two seperate seasons, and i say you're not listening to what i'm saying because i've already explained that 21 extra games in the SAME season is undoubtably an advantage and would be really dumb, but 8 extra games compared to 84 years ago is not necessarily an advantage, i don't get why you think it is, and you keep talking about having 2 records but that would be unfair to ichiro, for all we know sisler had a greater advantage because maybe the talent was lower or the style of play suited his type of game, that is why they have the same record for 154 games and 162 games, i don't care if you disagree with me i just want to stop having to say the same thing over and over again, if it's not going to change your mind or if i'm not going to change yourt mind then just drop it, this has gone on far too long and it has gone nowhere
this my last post here just to clear up any confusion, i said a regular season is a regular season, it does not matter if there were more games or not in the first place, but even with that you can not say 154 games 84 years ago were at less of an advantage than 162 games right now because we don't know the difference in difficulty so we might as well have one season stat for everything which is what we have now, as for the playoffs, they DO NOT count towards your career stats and are totally different from the regular season hence the name POST season, i said that if this year daren erstad's team was out of the playoffs and ichiro's were in and ichiro got 1 more hit in 18 more games then that wouldn't be fair, but since season stats DON'T count in the playoffs that wouldn't be making any sense as your argument, i trying to be as clear as possible and if you don't agree with me just remember that there is a reason the records are the way it is, some people that know more about sports than you and i combined felt that this was the best and fairest way to keep the records but if you're still not getting it so here's a recap:
a regular season is a regular season
regular season and post season are not the same season
we don't know if 8 extra games really are an advantage
it is most hits in a season not most hits in the least amount of games
and the reason i want to end this is not because i don't have an argument, the reason is that you are never going to give up and you just keep on coming up with dumber and dumber examples and i don't feel like having to respond to them
