This blog will be anonymous until it isn’t. I will write about anything that tickles my fancy, which will usually be about cars, but not always. Please feel free to post thoughtful comments as a dialogue is almost always better than a monologue.

Even though this fact has glanced off the collective skull of the world I am a pioneer in the application of analytics to professional sports, one of the fathers of “Moneyball.” I was also a mentor to baseball’s “golden boy,” another fact that has slipped through the cracks. Perception is reality even if it isn’t. However, the reality is that America is drowning in hyper credential-ism, political correctness and age discrimination. Oh, I wrote a book that The Wall Street Journal called without a doubt the best book of its kind ever written. That review will get me breakfast at McDonald’s…as long as I also have six dollars.

Don’t believe my claim about being a father of “Moneyball?” That’s my copy of the book signed by Michael Lewis with the inscription, “For […], Who led the way. Best, Michael.”
