Eddie Epstein

Epstein is a fascinating study in sabermetrics.  He’s worked on the inside, has some interesting (if somewhat incorrect) methods.  He writes for ESPN, and in his latest he discusses the best pitching and hitting  teams of all time.  Considering he and Neyer wrote a book about the best teams, you’d think these articles would be better than they are.

Epstein may be trying to write an appropriate level for his ESPN.com audience. He must feel like he's just arrived at the point where he doesn't have to redefine standard deviation each time he writes an article.
