i was going thru twitter today when a tweet of ESPN's matthew berry caught my eye. im usually not a fan of his because i feel like he's one of those nerds who think that numbers alone totally dictate the way we look at sports, but after reading the article I found out that if you can manipulate them in your advantage like he show's here, your "opinion" can always be seen as a fact with the numbers to back it up.
i found it pretty interesting, and note that it is about fantasy football but what is intriguing to me is the use of statistics to sway an opinion for or against any player. numbers vs. overall impact are often a topic of debate around here (*cough* toomer *cough*), and it's amazing what some people can dig up if they do their research.
worth a look:
