Burn Him! BURN HIM! If he's a witch, he'll stop the flames and you'll be forced to behead him. If he's not a witch (psh, unlikely) he'll die an honorable Christian death.

Damn it, turns out you can't write a comment consisting solely of "heart" in pointy brackets!

I've been a huge fan of Silver's work in baseball and I find sabermetrics really enriches my enjoyment of the game. It's funny though, the Republican's response to his work is the same garbage you'll hear from the 'old-school' baseball folks.
But they are sometimes wrong, see Chone Figgins drop off. Sometimes totally right even if the player protests, see Mark Trumbo, that BABIP did end up regressing.
Anyhow, Silver and those stat dudes are truly enriching the subjects they love.

He's no more a witch than Christine O'Donnell.

@8 O'Donnell IS witch, but the only spell she knows is one which turns religious lunacy and financial malfeasance into electoral defeats.

If he weighs as much as a duck, then he's made of wood, and therefore - a witch!

@7,
I could quote that movie all day

@9 I'm pretty sure she addressed that issue. Apparently some were not swayed.
