More Lyle Spencer Nonsense

Lyle Spencer tweet night of 9/9:

Given significant ballpark differentials, Mark Trumbo's 26/80 not too bad compared to Teixeira's 36/102 at $22M less.

While I don't disagree Trumbo is far better financial value than Teixeira Spencer's methodology, RBIs, is about as primitive as our forefathers 25,000 years ago killing animals by scaring them off a cliff. Seriously, does this guy make any attempt to improve his understanding of the game since he traded baseball cards as a kid?

I also dug up this Spencer gem: http://baseball-rumors.blogspot.com/2008/01/interview-with-lyle-spencer-of-mlbcom.html

Baseball-Rumors: Who were your votes for the class of 2008?

Lyle Spencer: My votes were for Bert Blyleven, Goose Gossage, Andre Dawson, Jim Rice, Don Mattingly, Dave Concepcion and Alan Trammell.

I'm partial to that era of the game, I loved watching guys like Don Mattingly play the game. I'm not a big fan of the moneyball idea that a lot of teams preach these days, but the game has changed so much in the last 10-15 years.

I do not mean to attack Spencer's character. He could be the nicest, most genuine person one will ever meet. I honestly have no idea.
