I don't think that Nate was a co-founder of BP, but he's the author of their PECOTA player projection system and an excellent statistician. I love his approach to this "problem." But I'm a little concerned that he has Chipotle at a #7 seed.
I agree with the Chipotle thing. Also, good point on the Nate Silver background. I don't know why, but I get the backstory of Silver and Clay Davenport (who I believe was in the initial group of BP contributors brought in by Gary Huckaby) confused. At least Nate didn't name his statistical breakthrough after himself.
Okay, enough baseball geek talk.
