This is the first in a new recurring series called Stats and Storytellers. We're excited to welcome Jonah Keri as our first guest. Our conversation was wide-reaching and really interesting. We talked about Jonah's recent article about the Expos mascot, Youppi, getting ejected from a game back in 1989, touched on the stats behind why he thought Tim Raines deserved to be in the Hall of Fame. Jonah reflected on first article at BP, his time here (and elsewhere), and we had a great discussion about the ins and outs of writing about statistics. Jonah mentioned many different writers and stories in the episode, one particular story from Jared Diamond in the Wall Street Journal about projection systems.
