Today Jessica Jensen (@JessicaFastball) interviewed me for her #BehindTheSeams interview series on Twitter. The series is interviews with people primarily around the game of baseball, really highlighting the dynamics and personal stories of the people involved and discussing topics normally outside of our normal conversation. Jessica is well worth the follow overall and the entire #BehindTheSeams series is wonderful and a great use of Twitter as a medium for discussing baseball and the stories around it. I greatly enjoyed both talking about baseball in the interview and in our prep leading up to it. The focus today was mostly on the state of stats in terms of writing, what is publicly available vs owned by teams, and the lack of innovation in how we approach statistics. Jessica put the entire interview into Storify and that is what I present below.
