In honor of the coming Super Bowl, I’ve convinced Doug Drinen of Pro-Football-Reference.com to post some football-related posts in the spirit of Sabernomics. Doug and I have done a lot of work together on baseball, and he is the person responsible for introducing me to sabermetrics. I only live two blocks from Doug, which gives me easy access to his collection of The Bill James Baseball Abstracts from 1982 until the end. It’s good to finally get Doug posting here directly. Doug’s ideas often appear on this blog through me after a lunchtime discussion.
Welcome, Doug! I look forward to your posts.
