Of course, "data mining" existed before Moneyball, and the city of Chicago is strongly associated with it: for example, the periodicity of extinctions in the fossil record was documented by two profs at the University of Chicago using large databases.

Still, it's cool to see baseball being viewed like this....
Gods don't play dice with the universe, they are the dice of the universe: our job is to figure out how many sides and dice!
