Scorecasting: The Hidden Influences Behind How Sports Are Played and Games Are Won - Tobias Moskowitz, L. Jon Wertheim A wide variety of topics with two things in common - sports and statistical analysis. Kind of surprised these cubs fans don't know why an umpire is likely to call a 3-0 pitch a strike if at all possible, but conversely I was surprised how many close 0-2 pitches are not called strikes. Enjoyed the debunking of hot streaks, momentum and others, and greatly enjoyed the breakdown of the cubs for the last chapter. A good read!
