Those Partying Sabremetricians

Now, we're not saying that the sainted members of the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR) are complete dorks or anything, but witness these earth-scorching quotes from their announcement that the 2006 SABR convention will be held in Seattle.

"This year, our convention is in Toronto and we'll have 32 research presentations."

"Just last week we had a member change our records on homers from Mike Grady, who played in the 1890s and the early 20th century. He looked through old box scores using the ProQuest Historical Newspapers program and could not find the homer for Grady in 1906 we had credited him with. We had an error and we changed it."

Boy, is the Seattle prostitution business ever gonna be busy that week.
