This Week on Clubhouse Confidential

On Monday, Clubhouse Confidential, the MLB Network program that airs right after The Kevin Millar Ha Ha Comedy Hour, aired a credulous, approving segment* on Tom Verducci's widely discredited (here, here, here, here, here, and here) "Year-After Effect," aka "The Verducci Effect."

* Paul Severino: "This is not a be-all, end-all formula, rather just a guideline. However, last year was a good example that it works."

Later this week on Clubhouse Confidential...

Tuesday: An interview with Buster Olney on his prophetic Productive Outs formula.

Wednesday: A treatise on the efficacy of Runs Produced.

Thursday: An interview with the authors of The Beauty of Short Hops, the book that "exposes the myths perpetrated by the bestselling book Moneyball" and denounces "the statistics-obsessed revolution started by Bill James."

Friday: Murray Chass discusses his new book, None Dare Call It Backne.
