Summary:
"This critical text exposes the fatal flaws of sabermetrics, demonstrating how it fails on its own terms, as it cannot evaluate baseball in terms of social science and offers only limited guidance for assembling a team and managing games. Drawing on examples from baseball past and present, baseball is presented and examined as a compelling and vibrant sport"--Provided by publisher.
