Michael Kay often doesn't know what he's talking about. He's not a complete idiot like Hawk is, but he often misses very important things. I'd like to think that he just gets confused.
He's previously argued with David Cone that pitchers do pitch to the score, while Cone, an ex-big league pitcher, says that the notion is completely false. Kay persisted and looked like a fool. Last night, while discussing the Baltimore Orioles' defense, he said something that made me want to pull my hair out:
Michael Kay: "Sometimes errors are not very indicative of how a team fields... fielding percentage might be a better indicator."— Matthew Pouliot (@matthewpouliot) September 9, 2013
Wow. In case he's reading this right now–hey, maybe Coney comes across this–let's break this down: Fielding percentage is based directly on the amount of errors a player makes. It's literally a percentage of how many plays a fielder successfully makes. Can't get much simpler than that.
But seriously, Coney, I hope you're reading this and I hope you inform him...and I hope you follow me on Twitter one day.
