Osama bin Laden: Sabermetrician?

by Jason Epstein

Courtesy of the UK’s Daily Mail, Osama bin Laden’s wife revealed to Pakistani investigators that the al-Qaeda leader, who Navy SEALs killed while he was dressed in pajamas, had not left their shared room in five years. OK, so Osama wasn’t living in his mother’s basement, but otherwise he was a near-perfect fit for the sabermetrician stereotype.

Left unclear from the article is whether he had ghostwritten blog posts for Fangraphs and tried to get one of his sons a summer internship in the A’s front office.
