Baseball Prospectus: A U of C designed conspiracy?

It has been brought to my attention that Nate Silver, who appears to be the main blogger on the Baseball Prospectus blog that I linked to a couple of days ago, is a U of C alum. And has a degree in Economics of all things.Figures that I like the blog so much. (One of his co-bloggers refers to him as "a University of Chicago designed robot," which is just about the best compliment someone could get in my book.)Also, Baseball Prospectus's Christina Karhl is a U of C alum. Sweet.(Hat-tip: Anurag & Yan)
