Kevin Goldstein - Baseball Prospectus

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

There are all sorts of great numbers out there that are far better measurements, but for a quick and dirty number I can do in my head, especially with pitching prospects, I like to go with my own metric I call "Missed Bat Number". It's simply K-H-BB. Anything positive is great, Pedro Martinez holds the single season mark in one of his crazy Red Sox seasons.

2. If you were a closer, what song would they play as you took the ball in the ninth?

Soldier's Requiem by Naked Raygun

3. If you were forced to change roles with any MLB club executive, who would it be an why?

I'd like to go into the commissioner's office and try to convince them to stop worrying so much about the draft when in the grand scheme of a baseball economy, it's just a drop in the bucket.
