The One-Hundredth Issue.

I skipped last week for a good reason. To stand up in a wedding for one of the best good-quality dudes I know. Cheers, Rodney!

One hundred! That's exciting. I had grandiose visions of writing a nice soliloquy to honor this milestone, but it will need to wait. Many, many things are being juggled as I near the end of grad school for applied data science. It's also summer, which means you better take advantage of every fun opportunity while it's available!

This week's lineup consists of a man chasing .400. I believe I have shared articles in the past that suggest that modern-day .400 is much lower, but it's a threshold narrative that won't change over time. Another reviews the changes in baseball and the impact on performance and injuries. Next, an attempt to improve xG for soccer using PFF shooter grades. Harvard reviews. NBA streakiness, and we follow it all up with a neat NHL draft stock app that mirrors Grinding The Mocks for NFL. Yes, I know the draft has concluded; it's still cool.

I am interested in sports-related data science opportunities. Let's chat!

This Week's Lineup

Weekly Unexpected Quote

"Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back."
