The Problem With ERA
Beginning yesterday, we’re trying something new and a little different with the guys over at Brock and Salk – we’re doing some post-swapping. I’ve agreed to write one post per week for their site, and Mike will contribute pieces to USSM on a semi-regular basis. The idea is to give both of our audiences something that they don’t necessarily get right now; I’ll be bringing some statistical analysis to their blog, and Mike will bring some of the behind the scenes stuff to ours. Both perspectives are valid, and we think it will give everyone a more balanced view of the game.
Anyway, my first post at their blog is up now. It’s a pretty basic primer on the flaws of ERA, so it may not be news to you, but I tried to write it in a way that wouldn’t be intimidating to people who don’t like math. We’ll have Mike’s first USSM post up here in the not too distant future.
Hope you guys enjoy the collaboration.
