All VORP Needs Now is the "Weird Al" Treatment and it Will Officially Have Hit the Big Time

It would seem the fine folks at The Onion have a VORPie in their midst. I can only hope that Marco Scutaro actually does calculate his own VORP before every at bat, at least until he inevitably starts playing like Marco Scutaro again; he's off to a very nice (.280/.420/.505, OPS+ 141) but likely unsustainable start for the Jays this year.

I have to admit to being a little disappointed that The Onion's resident stathead didn't close his article by revealing that Brian Bannister, statistician extraorinairre, was on the mound recalculating his own VORP after tallying another K.

Well played regardless, anonymous Onion writer.
