Smith College professor of economics Andrew Zimbalist
John Henry understands a lot of sabermetrics that’s quite important in the game of baseball. I’d be willing to put his sabermetric knowledge up against Terry Francona’s any day.
and except for the last few years, practically every year the postseason experience.
Why on earth did he choose CHB to co-author? That pretty much kills any desire on my part to read it.
Wasn't it mentioned in another thread that Zimbalist is now a paid consultant to MLB?
I finished the book over the weekend and its not nearly as dramatic as some of the excerpts come across. Francona is pretty candid but I didn't think he was unfair toward the owners.
Anything on J.D. Drew? I predicted years ago that we would have to wait until this book to get the lowdown on "I gotta hangnail Skip."
Zimbalist has what, a decade or more of credible analysis, usually against what the owners are fronting.
really, my impression of him has been 180 degrees the opposite, he has a decade of bought and paid for analysis literally trying to sell what the owners are fronting
$31???? (with tax) Jesus...even Red Sox baseball books are overpriced.
To take out certain things like that, to take them out of context, I thought it was petty.
“When you’re sitting around in a meeting and you’re brainstorming about what should we do to deal with flagging ratings on NESN or issues with potential drops in season tickets or whatever the meeting might be, you’re sitting around and you’re brainstorming and you say something. It’s just trying to, it’s off the top of your head. You’re trying to have a discussion about an issue. . . .
Amazon has it for $15. Jeez, are you pessimistic about everything?!? (j/k).
