    For people who like sports and are interested in Sabermetrics, "Math behind Moneyball" has been pretty interesting so far. Brushed up on my excel skills as well.
    Its about $60 and you get a certificate.

    Anyone know what pitch type "IN" is? I ran across it in the gameday files, and can't find any info about it. Do a search for (pitch_type="IN") without the brackets in the file below.

    I believe that means the pitch type was inconclusive

    That was my first thought too, but the type confidence is reasonably high (higher than other pitches in the at bat at any rate). Either the system is pretty damn sure it doesn't know what the pitch is, or it's something else.

    Anyone have a short version of what goes into a pitchers WAR?

    I just noticed Stroman beats Quintana in IP and FIP+XFIP but has less war than him
