Kyle Soppe graduated college in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Mathematics. He takes a unique view and uses cold hard statistics to back up the claim. He doesn’t try to convince you to change your thinking, but rather open your eyes not a train of thought that wasn’t even on your radar. This style has landed Kyle a position as a contributor at Hardwood Paroxysm (ESPN TrueHoop).  His long term goal is to join the ESPN Stats and Information team as a Stats Analyst, an ambition he will stop at nothing to achieve. Have a fantasy MLB, NBA, or NFL question? Interested in the correlation of certain statistics? Need a tie breaking opinion to settle an argument? Shoot Kyle an email at KylePickinSplinters@rochester.rr.com and he’ll do his best to respond in a timely manner. You can also find him on Twitter, @unSOPable23.
