Baseball projection crosses over
If you’re like me and a political junkie outside your baseball fandom, you may have seen the rise of FiveThirtyEight, this crazy… I don’t know, meta-poll? Political projection system? It’s made a lot of waves by being particularly accurate in figuring out which way contests will go based on weighting, regression analysis, most similar districts… yeah, it’s Nate Silver, of Baseball Prospectus, the guy behind PECOTA.
Pretty awesome. I didn’t see that coming, though in retrospect I should have at least suspected. I didn’t.
