Saber Seminar: Day 1 Recap

A recap of the first day of Saber Seminar, with a little info on the statistical and analytical research I found especially illuminating.

The Smallest Sample Size 8/13: Darvish dominates

Yu Darvish keeps topping himself. This time striking out 15 Astros while flirting with a no-hitter up until the eighth inning. Meanwhile, Mat Latos, Hiroki Kuroda, Cole Hamels and more were also able to pitch eight or more innings of dominant ball.

Grading the best tools in the major leagues

The Biogenesis scandal is constantly in the news, and seems to impact a few teams' postseason odds significantly. However, is this really the case?
