2013-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your book is one of my favorite ever about baseball. What's your favorite book about baseball?
(Mark from Omaha)
Probably Roger Angell's FIVE SEASONS. But I'm also a big fan of Pat Jordan, and A FALSE SPRING is a wonderfully honest memoir. But frankly, Mark, I could list about a dozen others that are still on my top shelf. Do you know a collection called CULT BASEBALL PLAYERS? I forget who edited it, but it has contributions from various writers about wonderful players like Vic Power and Minnie Minoso. (Kevin Kerrane)
2008-01-22 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do you expect that Football Outsiders (or someone like-minded) will ever catch up to BP in terms of analytics, or is baseball just too much of a dream subject for statistical analysis?
(Tony from Brooklyn, NY)
I do think they'll get close. The statistical information is there for those who want to autopsy it. Plus, with only 256 regular season games per year (if I did the math right), football analysts can watch every single game and track the movements of every single player on every single play. You can figure out a lot doing that.

Baseball will always have the coolest stuff, though. For instance, at the same SABR meeting where I saw Norman Macht speak, a member named Jan Larson did a presentation on walk-off steals of home. According to his exhaustive research, there have only been 35 since 1901. One of them was by Vic Power of the '58 Indians. It was his second steal of home of the game. Those were the only two steals he had during his Indians stint in '58.

Stuff like that is why I love this game and why no other game can touch it as a source of endless discussion. (Jim Baker)
