Dear Diary,

Kieron made an analogy about us, Stanford, and Moneyball today.  I couldn't help myself but say three times: "We're not the Oakland A's in your analogy."

Rather, we're more like the Boston Redsox in the early 2000s: we'll win a few victories here and there but with the aid of money.  Stanford is the Yankees and some other school is the Tampa Bay Rays.

So, once for the record:  we are not the Oakland A's.  None of us are Billy Beane.  We're not the Oakland A's.

We might have the Greek God of Walks in our farm system, though.
