It’s OK to pat yourself on the back

I don’t follow it anymore, but the major league baseball season started yesterday. The defending World Series champs, the Houston Astros, are led by the reigning league MVP, Jose Altuve. I, and the models I developed to evaluate baseball players, identified Altuve as a prospect in 2009. I identified Robinson Cano as a prospect in 2002. Of course, I was not always right in evaluating players, but I was right more than I was wrong by a significant margin. No one will ever be able to convince me that I deserved to lose my seat at the table. Pardon the profanity, but f**k anyone who thinks I am obsolete and that includes baseball’s “golden boys.” I am a pioneer in both analytics AND pro scouting and damn few people can make a statement of that magnitude. <end rant>

I don’t think my post had anything to do with it (https://disaffectedmusings.com/2018/02/21/build-this-car/), but Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has announced that Cadillac will, indeed, be putting one of their amazing concept cars into production, the Escala. (By the way, I did send the URL of that post to Cadillac.)

From gmauthority.com a picture of the Cadillac Escala. de Nysschen said, “Things are about to get very interesting at Cadillac. The world does not need another large-box conventional sedan.” Bravo, Cadillac!

  1. I am currently working on a theory to explain why SGLT2 inhibitors provide cardiovascular and renal outcomes for patients with Type 2 Diabetes. It is pretty simple, and yet the current diabetes intelligentsia refuse to see it. Patting yourself on the back is sometimes the only way one gets recognition.
