"What Geeks Don't Get: Limits of Moneyball"

Recommended Posts

Thought this was interesting and not sure this is the right forum...

No baseball guys on the panel but it's related Moneyball a book that uses baseball to tell it's story so I stuck it here in case anyone is interested.

Pretty good panel MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference that includes Michael Lewis, Bill Simmons, Mark Cuban, Jonathan Kraft, Bill Polian, Daryl Morey

This is well worth watching. There actually is not much discussion of baseball other than a little bit about the Red Sox and a sort of general statement (with which all panelists seemed to agree) that baseball is the easiest sport to analyze statistically because so much of it is based on individuals and you can more easily compartmentalize.

Fans of basketball and football absolutely should watch this though.
