One or two of you already posted about Moneyball, but if you haven’t, I wanted to set out some parameters. There ended up being no discussion after the movie, so if you’re still interested, you can watch the movie on your own and write a post about it. As you write your post, think about the tools of regression and statistical analysis that we use in class. How does the protagonist apply those tools? Do you think there are any issues with applying those tools to baseball? Are any of the assumptions of Classical Linear Regression violated when looking at baseball? If you’d prefer to answer a different question, feel free. Just make sure that it pertains to this class.
Due Monday, March 19 before class starts.
