Post subject:  Tomlin & Colbert getting analytics advice from Pirates.

I don't follow baseball.

I understand that the Pirates are cheap.

But should I find it funny that Tomlin and Colbert are asking one of the worst run (?) teams in baseball for advice on how to do player analytics?

On the other hand, it suggests Tomlin is not as disinterested in analytics/player tracking as some suppose.

Thoughts? :D

#Steelers Tomlin, Colbert and others are in #Pirates camp today swapping notes about analytics. Steelers are interested in how Pirates track OFs movements on field -- simialr jobs to WRs and DBs. Colbert politely declined to chat about what they're learning.

When Tomlin was signed in 2007 & we had a new, relatively inexperienced head coach, I had thought we had started a fresh-thinking, new era with the team now to be aligned with modernity & no longer stuck in the past. Boy, was I wrong! Meanwhile, the Moneyball book came out in 2003 & the movie in 2011. It's about time.

By going to the worst-run team in baseball? I think you've answered your own question.

You don't go to the Pirates, you go to Carnegie Mellon.

That makes so much more sense!

Suppose I get interested in philosophy and decide to read some sorry tripe like Fountainhead instead of Kant. Now, Kant is a serious thinker while Rand is a joke. Doesn’t mean I’m not interested in philosophy.

I take your point, though.

They need to take pointers from 'ol Jim Rutherford of the Penguins instead...
