The most fun you can have without getting arrested

by BriBriDi on Jan 26, 2009

Well....let?s be fair here. I am not really much of a baseball guy but I am certainly a history guy. I respect the game...."The Great American Pastime", but as a rule I do not play nor do I watch the game. I am not much of a stat guy and everything I know about baseball I learned from the movie "The Natural"....So what the hell am I doing reviewing this book? Well, I am reviewing it because I absolutely LOVE IT! Bill James makes Baseball fun and fascinating! If he can do that for a casually interested, history buff, novice... I would imagine that this book must be absolutely amazing for those who actually know what he is talking about! I have heard that James and his methods are sometimes a bit controversial to certain baseball devotees but weather you love him or hate cannot, nor should you, ignore him! A+
