Podcast Episode 11 - Pete Palmer

Dave interviews Pete Palmer, one of the original great minds in Sabermetrics. Pete co-authored The Hidden Game of Baseball, and later, The Hidden Game of Football. Pete describes how he discovered a scorekeeping error that incorrectly listed Ty Cobb's 1910 batting average as too high, thereby literally rewriting the baseball record books. He then discusses what it was like to edit baseball and football encyclopedias, how he made the move into football analytics and his current role as a member of the New England Patriots statistics team. Pete outlines the major findings he and his co-authors describe in The Hidden Game of Football, including early versions of expected points and win percentages. The show concludes with a discussion of questions he's interested in analyzing in today's NFL.
