Are mine eyes deceiving me or is this a weekend NotGraphs post?
I caught this semi-live Thursday night. I found it interesting that they carried out a meandering 6-minute conversation about crime without ever really delving into James’ book or its premise. I’d sort of like to know a little more about the book without having to effort to dig that info up, but I reckon James isn’t exactly a pitch man … well at least not that type of pitch man.
For those who have a MLB TV account with archive access, there were a couple of shots during the Jays’ broadcast of Verlander’s no-no on Saturday of a bespectacled Bill James clone decked out in Tigers’ gear preceding the final out (see 2:40:40 and 2:42:30 marks of the replay). That guy must be the Tigers’ senior sabermetric advisor.
