Rob Neyer - SBNation.com

1. What's your favorite statistic / metric to use when evaluating the effectiveness of a pitcher?

You know, I don't really have one anymore. Lately I've found myself just sort of eyeballing the strikeouts and the walks and the home runs. But sure, I'll check out FIP and BABiP when I feel like making the extra effort.

2. If you were the Commissioner of Major League Baseball (BTW: we would have to call you “Bud”), what would you be known for?

Hmmm ... I would probably be know for lasting about three months in the job, because both the owners and the players would probably hate my guts from the get-go. I think baseball should be run for the fans, while the owners think it should be run for the owners, the players for the players. I say a pox on both their houses.

3. It’s time to play “Which and Why”. Which would you rather win and why?
• The Oscar for Best Actor
• MVP of the World Series 
• Dancing with the Stars Champion

This is an easy one ... MVP of the World Series, because it means I got to play baseball, and be good at it. The only thing that would compare, for me, would be writing a great novel. Which is nearly as unlikely as me playing in the World Series.
