Joe Sheehan on "peripherals"
Joe Sheehan in today's newsletter:
If you follow me on Twitter (and you do, right? Why wouldn't you?), you know I've been hammering on this point of terminology for quite a while, so it's nice to see one of the major players in the game (the writing on the internet about baseball using stats invented post-1950 game) on the same side.
For what it's worth, my go-to phrase for strikeout, walk, and homer rate is "component stats."
Now if we can just stop saying "triple-slash."
