Hey there, and welcome to Words Above Replacement. What I hope you find on this website is a place for you to get your fix of baseball opinions and statistical analysis. I’ve been writing about baseball for some time now and decided I wanted a place to write about whatever catches my fancy when it comes to the sport I love. Ergo, this site was born. It’s still mostly a one-man show for now, with one very good woman and a rather bossy cat behind the scenes making sure that it’s up to snuff (we’ve since added a very concerned but loving dog to the mix). Maybe one day it will be bigger, but no matter what, I plan on enjoying the ride and picking up plenty of hitchhikers along the way.
