This site is a miscellany of short pieces I've written about baseball and basketball since the turn of the century. The most important baseball essays lay out new avenues of statistical analysis. In the realm of statistics I steer away from arcane formulae and toward simple, logical measurements that any fan can understand and calculate. The Offensive Quotient, the Prime Start, and Catcher Won-Lost are easy-to-grasp concepts which help broaden our appreciation of the game.
Most of the basketball material chronicles the adventures of the Berea College Lady Mountaineers, whose fortunes I've been following for the past decade.
