They will put the most ridiculous hype around anything just to get people to watch. A show about typhoons will be 'World Ending Mega Storms." A show about volcanos will be "Impending Flaming Doom!" And a show about sabermetrics is "baseball's secret formula."
I'll probably watch.
How many baseball fans are aware of the details of sabermetrics? I would wager it is a low percentage. Sure the fans who hang around on baseball forums are aware, but I would wager those people are more knowledgeable fans all the way around.
I think this special will be very informative for a large number of casual baseball fans.
