Profile: Luke Hoover

Luke Hoover fell in love with football at the age of 7. That love blossomed every fall weekend when, with enamored, twinkling eyes, he watched in awe as Notre Dame full-house backfielded its way to victories. He carried the family torch to the Golden Dome where, as a student manager, he received assists from Justin Tuck in moving tackling dummies and had a tooth chipped while practicing with the women’s basketball team. Luke’s top two teams, the Packers (reality) and Spiderpigs (fantasy), are in the championship hunt every year, while his Fighting Irish and Knicks continue to languish in an abysmal state of disrepair. Although genetics held him back as an athlete, Luke intends to dunk a basketball before turning 30, despite being 5’9’’, white and the exact opposite of a leaper, like a stander or runner or something.

Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

RotoWire's AL LABR Squad
The 2014 AL LABR auction went down at the Arizona Republic offices in downtown Phoenix Saturday night. It's a 12-team, 5 x 5, AL-only league with 2 C, 1 1B, 1 2B. 1 3B, 1 SS, 1 CI, 1 MI, 5 OF, 1 U and 9 pitchers. Everyone has $260 to spend.

My 12-Team NFBC RotoWire Online Championship Team
I drafted out of the 11-hole for the "Beat Chris Liss" league. I had done a fair amount of research on optimal roster construction from that slot, and I decided I'd go hitter in the first round, three pitchers in 2-4 and then hitting for the next 10 rounds or so before filling in with upside pitchers late. Of course, few battle plans survive the actual war. Here are the results:
