Description

Moneyball stud Billy Beane of baseball’s Oakland Athletics is a gracious guest on StatsCenter, who teaches us about data scatterplots and the correlation coefficient. He dives into the statistics behind whether high MLB player salaries have any relationship with the team’s overall wins. Is the correlation between payroll and wins positive, or negative? Is it strong, weak, or non-existent? StatsCenter shatters scatterplots like a weak wooden bat crushing a fastball.
