You guys are all aware that PECOTA was, in fact, created by Nate Silver who, along with being the creator of fivethirtyeight.com and an unabashed liberal, has appeared on Olbermann\'s show numerous times? Is it too much of a stretch to consider that the two sports nuts have befriended one another based on their mutual sports and political convictions, and that Nate said to Keith one day after taping a segment, \"You know what would be awesome? If you, being the big baseball fan that you are, wrote the foreword to BP\'s next book!\" I think all those outraged by Olbermann\'s presence in BP 2009 should promptly request that Pinko Silver\'s contributions be removed from all future editions of BP annuals as well. That way, we\'ll have a book only slightly less useful than the forthcoming \"Joe Morgan Guide to Winning Your Fantasy League.\" Good lord. Relax, people.
