Re: 10 minutes with Bill James
Think of it like a traffic accident that a lot of people witness. I'd expect an engineer or a scientist who was an eyewitness to give a very different account of the accident than a teacher or an author. Neither account would be "more correct" -- they'd just be different because people see things differently and are paying attention to different things.
Disagree. A scout sees more, probably much more, over the course of a game. A statistician is focused on quantifiable data, and that generally lacks significance until a large amount has been gathered.
