The Milwaukee Brewers are in the playoffs. The team last made it to the Major League Baseball playoffs in 2011. One thing that's changed since then is Milwaukee's increased use of analytics, or data analysis.
Analytics, or sometimes called sabermetrics in baseball, has been around for decades. But it came to more prominence in the 2000s. In the 2011 movie "Moneyball," an economist played by Jonah Hill explains one of the concepts: "I believe there is a championship team that we could afford, because everyone else undervalues them. Like an island of misfit toys."
