Someone came up with a mathematical formula for GRIT

Seems legit, as guys usually thought of as "gritty" such as Ben Zorbist, Martin Prado, and Jamey Carroll score pretty high.
Look for the Diamondbacks to acquire all of these players. No sign of The Riot surprisingly which might mean his grittiness is overrated along with all other aspects of his game. The Cubs have a negative GRIT rating over the past few years, mainly due to Soriano dragging them down.

I prefer this one the Ryan Theriot Adjusted On Base Percentage
oooooh man came across this great stat: http://www.urbandict...p?term=TOOTBLAN
Just for giggles and to cement our legacy, Wrigleyville23 is introducing a new stat to the baseball world - The Ryan Theriot Adjusted On-Base Percentage. It is calculated as such:
RTAOBP = (Hits+Walks+HBP-CS-Thrown Out On The Basepaths Like A Nincompoop)/Plate Appearances (AB+BB+HBP+SF)
To my knowledge - and I may need some help here - Theriot has been thrown out at least twice on the basepaths. But I will go with two, in addition to being caught stealing six times (in 14 attempts).
Therefore, Theriot’s RTAOBP is .349 - well below his official .399 OBP.
