The NERD score certainly looks like it’s in the early stages, but I can really see the potential in it. However, as boring as Ross Ohlendorf is, he did go to Princeton and has a website dedicated to cows (or horses, does it really matter?), I’d say he’s a nerd.
my humble suggestions: (1) per the conversation last week, i think nerd score should include a cool nickname quotient and (2) i’d like to see an “el guapo” (rich garces) matchup (e.g. the two pitchers with the highest combined weight) and a rollie fingers matchup (best facial hair).
