Fascincating new blog for law professor baseball fans

I am quite intrigued to discover this new blog, MoneyLaw.  Here is a portion of its first post:

Inspired by Michael Lewis's book, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, many law professors have pondered the extent to which this profession can learn from Billy Beane's approach to winning baseball games for the Oakland Athletics. Four of those professors — Jim Chen, Tom W. Bell, Paul Caron, and Ronen Perry — will now discuss the ways in which Moneyball's emphasis on quantitative assessment of baseball-related performance can inform law school governance, academic rankings, and the overall mission of legal academia.

The second post is a long one by Tom Bell on "Reforming the USN&WR Law School Rankings."

Clerk - so, does this Moneyball Blog attempt to show how underfunded/low-ranked law schools can still generate as many firm offers as the top 25?
