Numlock Sunday: Ben Lindbergh, part 2
By Walt Hickey
Welcome to the Numlock Sunday edition. Each week, I'll sit down with an author or a writer behind one of the stories covered in a previous weekday edition for a casual conversation about what they wrote.
Last week, I spoke to Ben Lindbergh of The Ringer who a few weeks ago wrote all about how the box office projections we all hear about actually get made.
This week, we’re talking about his new book, The MVP Machine, and all about how baseball teams have moved on from the Moneyball-era of trying to hire underpriced talent and have since moved on to a new, more ambitious era of using widely-applicable techniques to develop talent.
This interview has been condensed and edited.
