How Your Favorite Baseball Team Blows Its Money

For an article on FiveThirtyEight today, Mike Lopez and Noah Davis charted the relationship between spending and win percentage for every baseball season since 1985. They found that the relationship between money and winning in baseball is as strong now as it’s been any time in the free-agency era. Below you’ll see that relationship for each team in the majors. Each season is one dot in the figure, and the colored line is a smoothed curve fit through the points. Essentially, the higher the curve, the more the team’s money was well-spent. The gray line is an aggregation of all the data points across the entire league, and that line shows a pattern: More money generally means more wins.Read more: Don’t Be Fooled By Baseball’s Small-Budget Success Stories » read more

Joe Barton on his management career

first_imgJoey Barton officially retired from playing football in the summer but has revealed he’d been planning to enter management for years.Fleetwood Town manager Joey Barton discussed quitting football and the first steps he took towards management.“For me it has been a case of years of thinking, planning and anticipating what you were going to do coming to fruition,” he told Sky Sports.“And then all those best-laid plans going right out the window!“Everything you think you’ll face you do and then more, but it has been really enjoyable and every day is a real learning experience.“I don’t think anything can ever prepare you for it. It’s a role that varies from club to club and you can have all manner of things going on in any given day.“You really have to think about the ramifications of any decision or any interaction.”LEICESTER, ENGLAND - AUGUST 28: Joey Barton, Manager of Fleetwood Town reacts during the Carabao Cup Second Round match between Leicester City and Fleetwood Town at The King Power Stadium on August 28, 2018 in Leicester, England.

Medina – April 30, 2019 The English midfielder talked how he was signed by owner Mike Ashley and how he was frustrated after a while with the Magpies.It has been a good start to life as a manager for Barton. Fleetwood Town are 12th in the League One table. And the for the rookie manager, it’s been a learning curve as their form has tailed off in the last few weeks.“Getting the job was a case of timing and opportunity,” Barton said. “Fleetwood were changing managers and wanted to speak with me, and I couldn’t refuse that opportunity.“It has been a bit of a baptism of fire because I didn’t really know much about the level and there were a lot of grounds I hadn’t visited before this season.“But it’s the perfect breeding ground for me and a place where I know I can fulfill my potential.“It’s enough out of the spotlight to be able to make mistakes and learn from them, while also not getting too much praise when you do really get it right.”last_img read more

San Diego selected by Trump administration for drone testing program

first_img May 10, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, AP Categories: Local San Diego News, National & International News, Trending FacebookTwitter Posted: May 10, 2018 San Diego selected by Trump administration for drone testing programcenter_img BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — San Diego was named as one of a select few cities named by the Trump Administration to participate in a national drone testing program.U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao on Wednesday announced 10 sites for a test program aimed at increasing the use of unmanned aircraft for projects that range from monitoring crops and oil pipelines in North Dakota to applying mosquito-killing treatments in Florida and package deliveries in Tennessee.President Donald Trump signed a directive last year to establish the “innovation zones” that allow exemptions to some drone regulations, such as flying over people, nighttime flights and flights where the aircraft can’t be seen by the operator. States, communities and tribes selected to participate would devise their own trial programs in partnership with government and industry drone users.“Data gathered from these pilot projects will form the basis of a new regulatory framework to safely integrate drones into our national airspace,” Chao said in a statement.Chao, who called the rapidly developing drone industry the biggest development since the jet age, said about 150 applications were received. Selected were the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma; the cities of San Diego, California, and Reno, Nevada; state transportation departments in North Dakota, North Carolina and Kansas; University of Alaska-Fairbanks; the Center for Innovative Technology in Virginia; Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority in Memphis, Tennessee; and the Lee County Mosquito Control District in Fort Meyers, Florida.A statement by San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer is expected Thursday on details of San Diego’s involvement in the program.The Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota has an unmanned aircraft mission. North Dakota Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford said the program will spur more commercial investment and “allow us to explore new uses for unmanned aircraft.” He envisioned drones helping with oil field, flood and weather monitoring, and “finding missing persons.”The unmanned aircraft industry has pushed for relaxed restrictions, and the Trump administration has said current regulations have limited drone use, forcing companies to test overseas.Steven Bradbury, a lawyer for the federal Transportation Department, said drones have caused some “apprehension” with the public but one of the initiative’s biggest goals will be increased “community awareness and acceptance” of unmanned aircraft.Bradbury said there is no direct federal funding for the test program.
