You’ve Been Traded – For Big Data

business baseball cartoon

I’m not a huge sports fan, but over the past decade I’ve found it more interesting with the rise of number crunching in sports.

Sure, baseball has always been a game of stats, but it and others have really upped why and how they interpret their data – and it just really fascinates me.

With that in mind, and with the season having just begun, this cartoon felt like a home run.

  1. Fascinating. But I don’t think they are ‘traded’ though. If you know what I mean.

  2. Perhaps there’s been a rise in number crunching because there’s technology in place that makes it easier to do so.
