And so it begins. I'm David Sabino and I'm taking over as writer of the Stats Driven blog. If the name sounds familiar, you've probably read my work as stats editor and fantasy sports writer for Sports Illustrated, something I started doing the same year the Expos drafted an up-and-coming high school catcher from San Mateo, CA named Tom Brady. To this point my career has been spent analyzing stats across the vast spectrum of sports. Here I'll be focusing on the numbers behind the teams New Englanders care most about: The Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins.

The overall goal of the new-look Stats Driven is to provide answers to some of your questions, while putting sports news events into context. If you come away saying to yourself, "Wow, that's interesting," or if you can stump a friend with a bit of trivia you've picked up here, then it will have been a success.

All of the older posts will remain in this space, but from now on updates will be more frequent and much more tied to the latest news events, so check back often. Also, please feel free to send suggestions and comments (and follow me) on Twitter @SabinoSports. I'll be happy to hear from you.
