We’re joined by sports analytics luminaries Sean Lahman, author of the Lahman Baseball Database, Trey Causey, creator of The Spread, a blog about the data science of sports, and Greg Matthews, author of openWAR, a technique for predicting the worth of baseball players. We dig into how huge amounts of data are fundamentally changing baseball, basketball and football.

Also, Jonathon has a ridiculous story about building a tweet bot that spits out business intelligence advice in the style of Eddie Murphy. Boom!
