It is funny for me when I now hear him covering a MLB game but he is good at it.
yeah, but how good was his real analysis?

Finished an MSc in Statistics and then got a job for a University doing "Business Intelligence" which is using SQL to get data from the DB's to make reports. Don't even use any stats at all most days.
