Quotes Ryan Liked

Michael Lewis
“There was but one question he left unasked, and it vibrated between his lines: if gross miscalculations of a person's value could occur on a baseball field, before a live audience of thirty thousand, and a television audience of millions more, what did that say about the measurement of performance in other lines of work? If professional baseball players could be over- or under valued, who couldn't?”
Michael Lewis, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game
