BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Reading anything good these days?
(mhixpgh from Pittsburgh)
I recently finished Dirk Hayhurst's "The Bullpen Gospels" (thumbs up, need to review it for BP.com) and Jaffe's "Evaluating Baseball Managers" (thumbs up, need to review it for BP.com), as well as Zamoyski's history of the Congress of Vienna, Otto Friedrich's "Before the Deluge" (Berlin before Hitler), and Charles Stross' latest Laundry Files novel, "The Fuller Memorandum." I'm figuring that, for Phoenix, I'll pack an Alan Furst novel or two, the still-unread new Charlie Finley bio, and either "Paris Babylon" (about the Commune and its suppression) or Isabel Hull's "Absolute Destruction," with its controversial thesis about consistent themes in military subculture. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)CK, you are the cat's meow. I've always wanted to ask: What are your top 5 books on baseball?
(Earl Weaver from Bodymore Murderland)
Well, shucks, I do try. I'm ridiculously fond of Weaver on Strategy, because that's about the perfect synthesis of sabermetrics aimed at a mainstream (or ball-playing) audience, and a reminder that much of what sabermetrics achieves is documenting the previously observed. Dan Okrent's Nine Innings is another '80s-vintage fave, because it's a great example of how individual games can be a lens through which to view larger issues for a team or an organization. I think anyone serious about sabermetrics ought to know its history, so put Alan Schwarz's The Numbers Game on your shelf. A personal favorite is Steve Fireovid's The 26th Man, but I need to read Dirk Hayhurst's book to see if that's what might get swapped in. And while I'm a big fan of The Hidden Game of Baseball and The Historical Baseball Abstract, my fifth would be Baseball Between the Numbers. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)No question, just a thanks for chating. I read all the BP chats but have never written in, just wanted to say thanks, they are always great
(Lipmanpike from VT)
Thanks, man, that's appreciated.

And a perfect opening to finish answering Alex's question above - I really want to read the Dirk Hayhurst book, and Emma Span's 90% of the Game is Half Mental because both look to be good for laughs. I like what I've seen from Hayhurst, and Emma's stuff at Bronx Banter and her own blog (Eephus Pitch) has consistently been entertaining. Plus she's a friend, and I root for my friends to do well in this racket (and any other one). (Jay Jaffe)
