Three Percent #155: All Statistics Are Baseball Statistics
After a brief foray into Baseball Prospectus 2019 and Power Ball by Rob Neyer, Chad and Tom get down to business, analyzing Chad’s statistically-based, very lukewarm take on translation production in 2018. They come up with innumerable, very rational reasons for the dip in translations that tend to revolve around ideas of “market correction.” This is probably the most level-headed—and insightful—conversation they’ve had in a bit. There’s also a bit of singularity anti-capitalism talk, a pitch for reading Marie-Claire Blais, and much more!
This week’s music is “We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives” by Los Campesinos!
