The start of a new baseball season brings promise of future championships. Everyone is undefeated! How do we as analytics practitioners capitalize on this new market? Is it as simple as applying the right analytics to the right problems? Find the answers and you win the prizes.
Who will win today, who will lose are based on a myriad of subsets and variables. Who is pitching, day vs. night game, home or away. Is Bryce taking a day off? Can the Yankees ever win opening games anymore? The Sox always win on Patriots Day!!
Oh so many questions and so many datasets to start working through. Thank heavens we have 160 more games to resolve.
Good luck #datanerds, and Go Red Sox
