Interesting blog on BP and the evolution of statistics

Deadspin on Baseball Prospectus

 

Deadspin threw out a quick writeup on the evolution of baseball prospectus, a comparison to moneyball, and who the leaders in baseball statistics are.  Of note in the article is the praise of Dave Cameron as one of the cutting edge baseball stat guys.  They basically say that Dave is the brightest young sabermetric stars of today (don't blush Dave).

 

It goes on to explain how THT and Fangraphs have supplanted BP in many areas of work, all while not charging a subscription fee.  It's interesting how long BP has been around, well before Moneyball, and how teams started "raiding" BP and giving front office jobs to their writers.  It's also interesting that some of the big stats guys are talking about moving beyond sports, as well.  I'm wondering what kind of things they could move into.

 

Edit: Wanted to add how spoiled we are as M's fans to have guys like Dave, Jeff, Matthew, and Graham.  Don't know how we got lucky to have all these guys follow the M's and write a good amount of material on them but it adds alot to the fan experience.
