Has anyone looked at "Baseball Between the Numbers"? It's a stat heavy book which covers all things baseball. Scott... you I know would enjoy this fully!

I haven't read it. I have read a great book called "The Numbers Game" which is a very interesting view of the use of statistics in baseball. I'll look for the one you mentioned, and let me know if you want to borrow the one I mentioned. It gives historical perspective on how we have come to measure success in the game. It shows how very subjective the measurement tools are.
