Stay tuned...

I realize things have been a bit quiet around here for the past couple months. A few conclusions stand out to me upon reflection.

1. Having a new job negatively impacts frequency of writing
2. Having a new baby negatively impacts frequency of writing
3. Having both a new job and a new baby ensures that no writing will take place

Needless to say the last few months have been exciting and I am happy with both the job and the new addition to the family. I wouldn't trade it for anything even though this blog, which has been thoroughly enjoyable for me, has found itself a notch or two lower in priority. I hope you'll all give me the benefit of the doubt when I say that new research will show up here eventually.

The good news is that I have the data and analysis portions of my next piece (probably a 3-4 part series) complete. This will be a look at how much being drafted impacts playing time while attempting to control for underlying player skill and will breeze through some of my favorite armchair behavioral economist ideas.

The bad news is that I have almost no words of thoughtful, insightful, slightly wordy blog post composed. When that comes - in the next week or month - you'll see it here first. In the meantime, continue to enjoy the site and lots of old posts while keeping up the lively commenter community for which this site is known.
