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)
