Best article I've read all day. Looks like it is possible to extend this as far back as we have play by play data.

Cool article. The variance is pretty large on most of the scatter plots shown, but the data is still useful. More importantly, I got to learn about Sicnarf Loopstok and this mind blowing article (https://www.milb.com/milb/news/sicnarf-loopstok-wins-moniker-title/c-58943200). Yes, Jose Jose is a real person.

Interesting for sure. I remember CERA being debunked years ago, I almost wonder if CFIP would be meet the same fate.
