Let me say that again: statistical analysis (that we in the public are aware of) takes the most important element of the sport, and ignores it.
It’s like having Newtonian physics without relativity and quantum mechanics. There’s a lot you can do with Newtonian physics, but at the extremes, it begins to break down, because it is ignoring some deeper, more fundamental truths.
“It could be beneficial for managers of MLB teams to take game day temperature into account when setting their lineups,” Koch said.
