Fear Strikes In


From Colby Cosh's entertaining & rambling World Series post-write:

The biggest winner tonight may perhaps be a struggling writer from Maine named Stephen King, who has spent this season following his beloved Red Sox for a book he's planning. It's nice when a little-known talent gets a lucky break, isn't it?

Cosh goes on to point out that it was also a victory for sabermetrics, an outsider-driven analytic revolution chronicled in the Michael Lewis book Moneyball, which I reviewed last December.
