"Is WAR the new RBI?" Link Dump

I've had some requests from friends, old and new, to link to all the various places where my "Is WAR the new RBI?" post at IIATMS was constructively critiqued, lambasted, debated, and/or lionized.  Over at IIATMS, we are moving on and I won't be writing any more on the subject in the near future.  After all, the postseason is nearly upon us.  So, I'll post the link dump here.  After all, considering SPH hasn't been updated for six months, if you're here, this is probably the reason (traffic shot up just a touch this week).    Beware, I'm creating a timesuck.  If you plan to read all the digital ink spilled on this subject, especially in the comments and message boards, you better make yourself comfortable.  If you come across something else I should look at/add, let me know.

Is “war” the new rbi?

Never. Rbi’s still have it’s place in articulating the results of a power hitter....
