There's gaping holes in a lot of these new analytical stats. Everyone wants to be the new Bill James in their respective sports so bad that their not seeing these holes.

Sorry just to jump back to this - there are gaps, as there are in any quant work, you are trying to turn life and sport and art and beauty into numbers and extract meaningful learnings without blowing your brains out - however, there is a huge amount of work going into finding these gaps, and working on the models etc.

It’s unfair and frankly a bit daft to suggest they are ignored or not worth the paper they are printed on.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
