On heart

I don't usually do posts solely as link dumps, but I will today. Last week, former All-Star Nomar Garciaparra was on ESPN's Baseball Tonight show about modern baseball statistics. He proceeded to make the cliched statement that "there's no stat yet that measures heart." A few days later, baseball writer Joe Posnanski posted an extremely thoughtful (and thought-provoking) response on his website. Poz's article is respectful and non-sardonic (which, you have to admit, is sometimes hard to find in the blogging community) while being effective in getting his point across. It is definitely one of the best baseball articles I have read.
