Snell, second from left, comes out of the game against the Dodgers in the 6th inning in Game 6 of the World Series at Globe Life Field on October 27, 2020 in Arlington, Texas. I'm a lifelong Dodgers fan and I waited for 32 years for the team to win another World Series. But during this period of time, the sport has certainly seen much change. With the availability of huge amounts of data, sophisticated computers and advanced analytics, the strategies have become increasingly based on the numbers. It seems that AI (Artificial Intelligence) has dominated the decision making process.

Statistics is a huge field and many disciplines such as biology, economics and psychology have made significant contributions to it. This link to journals published by the American Statistical Association and this link regarding the popular statistical software R demonstrate just how big a field it is. Statistics is not just point-and-click and its growing complexity makes simplifying it more difficult, not easier. Moreover, in his popular textbook Statistical Rethinking, Richard McElreath of the Max Planck Institute makes a very important observation: "...statisticians do not in general exactly agree on how to analyze anything but the simplest of problems. The fact that statistical inference uses mathematics does not imply that there is only one reasonable or useful way to conduct an analysis.
