BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)This is more of a rant than a quesiton, but please tell us again why the team and player comments in the annual Baseball Prospecutus book are not attributed to a specific author. Telling us who the authors are would enhance my enjoyment of the book. When I read the James Hoey comment, I wanted to know whose observations I was reading because knowing one's source is part of being a critical reader. When I read the Robb Quinlan comment, I though it was hilarious and wanted to know who wrote it. We know that each author has his or her own viewpoint and that there isn't a monolithic BP groupthink, so why not tell us? Sure, many of the pieces may be heavily edited, but if that was the whole reason for refusing to identify the authors, then why do many other collections identify their authors (such as It Ain't Over, if I recall correctly).
(Michael from Detroit, MI)
It's almost a question of logistics, as well as a reflection of our team-focused identity, *especially* in this kind of product. A nice, normal book like "It Ain't Over" has pieces written by a single person, whose work gets edited by a single editor, and there's time for that single person to get to take some time to do significant revisions at the request of the editor.

In contrast, the annual is pure monkey-juggling. Some player comments have a single father, and some have contributions from five different people, and every set of player comments has stuff from the original author, Steven or I, Kevin Goldstein input on prospects... what, you want four or fives sets of initials with every individual player comment? That strikes me as ludicrously credit-hungry, and my teammates have historically tended to agree.

The people who worked on the book have their names on the title page, and we really enjoyed what we put together. If you want a set of footnotes on whether a specific joke was Joe's or whether I lived up to my rep as a bon motista or whatever, I guess the point is that it doesn't really matter; it's all in the book, and you should focus on the *content*, because the messenger has too many faces to single out just one.
