… I’ll share this Facebook post someone whose opinion I trust mightily wrote last night:
Dear People Flipping Out,
I’ve mentioned this before, but about a decade ago I was in a sabermetric-oriented simulated baseball league with someone I’ll call “Sate Nilver.” I eventually quit that league because no one could defeat “Nilver,” because “Nilver” cared about nothing but being correct. His assiduous devotion to developing models that could defeat your models sapped all the fun out of simulating baseball games with a group of stats nerds. Now, sleep easy, because tomorrow he will “win” again.
I believe in the guy who believes in this guy like he was my son or possibly myself.
