New sabermetrics? I was just getting used to the old sabermetrics.

March 9, 2012

Bill King of Baseball Reflections posted this piece about some new ideas coming out of the SABR Analytics Conference in Mesa, AZ, March 15-17.

John Thorn, MLB’s official historian, will also be there. In 1985, Thorn, along with Pete Palmer, published one of the earlier books on the game’s new generation of metrics in The Hidden Game of Baseball.

I must admit, most of this stuff is beyond my ken. And my barbie, too.
