Dan Dickerson schooled ESPN on Twitter, and it was awesome

New, comments

ESPN's Jim Bowden ranked the "Top 10 big-game pitchers in MLB" and stuck Justin Verlander at the bottom. Dan Dickerson went to the stats, and ... this happened.

Last Wednesday, Jim Bowden of ESPN Insider published a list of "Top 10 big-game pitchers in MLB," with Clayton Kershaw taking top honors, and Justin Verlander coming in at the number-nine slot. The "Voice of Tigers Baseball," Dan Dickerson, took ESPN to task via Twitter today, citing multiple statistics to support his case that Verlander belongs at the top of that list.

By the way, when's the last time you heard an MLB broadcaster use a Win Probability Added statistic (as opposed to just the "Will to Win" quotient)?

Enjoy the awesomeness ...
