I'm an 19 year old college freshman with a huge passion for baseball. The past three years I've discovered sabermetrics and so far it's the best thing that I could have found. I used to look at ERA and W/L when talking about pitchers. Now I use FIP, xFIP, etc. For batters it was BA/HR/RBI. Now I look at wOBA, WAR, etc. One day I want to work in a ML office, hopefully that happens but we'll see where life takes me.
