I don’t have much to report. The interviewing process is frustrating as always, but I shall persevere. I’m actually in Texas right now, visiting my mom for mother’s day, but I thought I would post a link to an essay that I wrote on my personal blog. I wrote a brief piece giving my two cents on the recent appearance of HG Bissinger, Will Lietch, and Braylon Edwards on Costas Now. I do think it is very related to what I’m doing here, in the fact that I think the same spirit of discontent with the institution has found itself both in blogs and the sabemetric movement. In other words, blogs and sabermetrics in its current form are both a reaction to something. And that something is a failure by an institution to provide the people who interact with the consumer with something that is useful for them. In any case, I’ll be back next week with a better progress report, but I figured I spent a great deal of time working on the essay so that should count for something.
