There's a very interesting article at the Las Vegas Sun that brought an interesting idea to me. There's not a big chasm between bookmaking and sabermetrics, yet it seems that there's been a Landisian chasm between the two disciplines. This is understandable, given the desire of most baseball analysts to be taken seriously within the game and the reaction to gambling in the sport.
While the separation is understandable, I think it's perhaps a lost opportunity. I'm curious where, if any, there's knowledge that crosses both fields. This article seems to indicate that park factor research could be done in a "quick and dirty" fashion in smaller sample sizes than most analysts would be comfortable with. I'm curious where other opportunities are to share knowledge ... if sabermetrics gets over a social taboo and if bookies see a way to tip the house.
