DailyDirt: Digging Into Sports Statistics

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Baseball fans have been fascinated with player statistics for a really, really long time. Sabermetrics changed a few things about baseball in recent years, so it's about time other sports started looking into more rigorous data analysis, too. Fantasy team managers and actual professional coaches are both looking for diamond-in-the-rough players, and more player statistics are being collected and analyzed to find them. Here are just a few interesting developments in the field of performance analysis. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    still only 5 basketball positions

    They've just come up with some nicknames for the way some of them play the game... There could be as many different positions as there are players if you just name the position after the player -- like the "Jeremy Lin" position or the "Michael Jordan" position..........
