Math? Fuzzy.

Torture numbers, and they’ll confess to anything.

Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are more pliable.

About statistics.

This is not a site for rigorous statistical analysis or disinterested scholarship. This is a site for blatant partisanship and outright bias. In a world where you are either with us or against us, BallWonk is for Washington and against the rest of the NL East. To the extent that stats can be used to support our team, BallWonk will use statistics. And when the stats simply cannot be bent, twisted, or spindled into shape, BallWonk will ditch the facts and justify our team with naked appeals to base emotion.

BallWonk will stay on-message at all times, even if Philliecrats and Metservatives try to confuse the public with streams of numbers and lists and elitist book learning.
