Introducing Statistics – Recap and Suggestions

Today, I would like to gather up all of the introducing statistics posts so far, to give people an easy way to find fairly simple introductions to a variety of very complex statistics. From oldest to newest:

What other statistics should I do introduce? Please leave suggestions in the comments, or send them via e-mail. As the World Series nears its conclusion, this blog will likely do more coverage of football and other sports than it has up to this point. Feel free, then, to suggest stats from sports other than baseball.
