Actually, yes I am.

I've been meaning to learn R for quite some time, and I had signed up for a stats course of Coursera. Turns out I got really busy and didn't follow through, but I think that having a course specifically designed around SABR will keep my attention.

I'm signed up. I've also been looking to learn R and improve my SQL. This seems like a fun way to do it.

I'd like to go back through the years and see who should have won the World Series instead of who actually did, because you know, wins are an overrated stat and everything :) Only partly joking.. I will have my pencils sharpened

They appear to have delayed the start of the course one day. So there's still time for people to sign up.

I'm certainly glad I just took it survey. I enjoyed a lot of the articles and material, but I just didn't have the time when it was offered to put in the effort it would require to truly test on the material. I do feel like I got a lot of good background on stats that are current and ones that are on the way.
