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!

If we trade AB to the Yankees, I’m gonna be PISSED.

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...

How much ground could AB cover in center field?

Having gone to grad school at CMU, it is my highly worthless opinion that da Judge could become the new Gronk....

hey, this is the organization that had the best offseason roster IN YEARS a few years ago. It was also the organization that pulled off the greatest MLB trade in the history of mankind. The Pirates absolutely swindled the Braves by acquiring a pitcher with a career ERA of 4.41 and 18 more losses than wins.

The Steelers better take fucking notice and pay attention.

The thing is, I KNOW there are people at CMU who have done, or are doing, this work. I posted a database a while back that was crawled from the play-by-play game summaries. Pretty sure that was the brainchild of a couple CMU grad students. And there have been other related projects I've seen/heard about out of there.

So I wasn't joking when I said they should go to CMU....

Here's a question: How do you interpret that chart? Meaning... what conclusions do you draw from that chart data?
