    Nate Silver leaves NYT for ESPN

    Wow. That's big. I figured it would be in addition to his NYT work. But he's moving the whole she-bang there.

    Nate Silver and Keith Olbermann together on ESPN. What could go wrong?

    Keep him away from Chris Broussard.

    Can I dream this is a sign ESPN is moving to more stats and metrics and less Bayless yelling about stupid shit?

    I would think ESPN is big enough to accommodate both, sadly.

    I should have known you'd be the one to crush my dream.

    This hire seems much more valuable for ABC News than ESPN.

    We have a predictive body in sports. It's called Vegas.

    And yet Baseball Prospectus, Fangraphs and others have been quite successful.

    My point was there is so much statistical analysis out there for sports. His work on the elections was more refined and unique, and even if he has spawned imitators, he comes with more credibility than them, which can't be said for sports analysis.
