    Those stats prove to me once again that it is a long season. Twenty-five games are not a big enough sample of stats to tell us the true picture about players or teams.

    What VOR said: small sample size.

    Last night we had a 12-13 U game, we had our first 5 hitter's hammer the ball, left runners stranded on 2nd and 3rd. Wouldn't you know in the bottom of the inning we walked lead off that steals second and third, scores on wild pitch. Baseball can be that way sometimes...One team knocks the cover off the ball and can not score while the other doesn't hit it all and does score

    It only takes a couple blowouts to really skew those numbers this early in the season.

    This reminds me of the old saying "Stats are like a bikini, They show a lot, but sure don't show everything."
