really liked it

A treasure of a book and the sort to which one can always turn for diversion, whether to read a passage you've missed previously or to reread an argument you've already contemplated. This is not a book you read from start to finish and yet I doubt there is much in it I have not seen. Still, given the data-driven world of baseball analysis Bill James helped create ... there is a lot of unabashed opinion in this book, including the infamous Jeff Bagwell "Pass." For that one word alone James can't deserve five stars - and yet, this is a must-have book for any fan of the game.
