SV Business Journal takes a look at how Quakes, 49ers, Athletics use big data to gain competitive edge

Are you interested in how technology affects sports recruiting? Then, you won't want to miss today's issue of the Silicon Valley Business Journal. 

Economic Development reporter Lauren Helper takes a look at how professional Bay Area sports teams use big data to gain an edge in the scouting market. Helper reviews the 49ers, the A's and the San Jose Earthquakes to see how nowadays money isn't everything. Teams continue to use technology to evaluate performance, seeing how their investments in athletes will yield big returns. 

It's pretty interesting stuff - and, lucky for you, the paper is free online this week.
