Re: MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference
It's basically the moneyball conference. THere are different threads focusing on business, marketing, performance analysis, etc.
I'm most looking forward to the first panel tomorrow morning: Revenge of the Nerds. It features Mark Cuban, Michael Lewis, Nate Silver and Darel Morey.
I'm just going to geek out for awhile.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
