There's a lot more things that we can talk about kind of expand on. The quality of what you bring to the game, which is essentially what analytics tries to do, is to try to create language so that you can articulate what a player a brings to the game compared to Player B, which people who are baseball fans like me love, love, love to do. Now the only thing about analytics is that in the same way, the fervour about an e. R a of the old stats like a 20 game winner when lost those kind of 700 the five home runs is a gold standard that it doesn't come close to talking about what Hank Aaron brings. Technically, if you want to talk about it, if you take all of Hank Aaron's home runs away, he still had 3000 hits. Like Hank Aaron was much, much more than the home run king that you would think of now of these players. They're striking out, you know, 150 times about not getting 30 home runs. Hank Aaron never struck out over 100 times in a year, ever the most he ever did was 96 he really did struck out more than 60 times one time in his entire career. If you just say 7 35 that doesn't define how good, for example, Hank Aaron was. But now that we have all these other stats that we can talk about WRC defensive metrics, what what he brought defensively to the field like we can break down just how incredible Hank Aaron was today. Then we ever could before. Now, that being said, the analytics, people follow them with such fervor that they lose sight, that these players are people and they're not numbers and their comfort really does matter, for example.
