In my teen years I was a baseball statistic junkie. I stayed up late playing Earl Weaver Baseball on my Amiga 500, played Pursue The Pennant and had a wicked collection of baseball cards, that now are all gone (*sniff*). I fell out of that phase but in a recent ESPN Magazine article I was inspired to think again about how medicine often struggles to be creative at times, especially when it comes to our data. We have tons of data in health care, but do we really analyze it in the best way possible?
Are there any other statistics from sports we could help us in medical decision making?
