Sports, Love It or Levitt
The folks at Marginal Revolutions posted a link to a Financial Times article on the sports work of economist Steven Levitt. Here is a post I had recently on his work, which contains links to Levitt's original research.
For you baseball fans, you will find a quotation from Levitt disparaging the Moneyball boys. I'd love to see Levitt get involved in some of the sabermetrics and sort some of that out.
Also, in case you missed the link at Baseball Musings, the Baltimore Sun has an article on how the O's think they have found a relationship between players' entry draft psychological tests and future performance. Definitely worth a look, though it'd be nice to see a copy of the instrument and know something about its psychometrics.
