Críticas:

"engagingly written...highly recommended"--Library Journal; "a thoughtful, spunky counterpoint of a book, sure to be panned by true believers"--Spitball; "thankfully, the Hirsch brothers provide the first sensible rebuttal to the Moneyball approach. After summarizing Moneyball in the opening chapter, the authors...pick apart Michael Lewis's arguments with relish. The authors compare a base-running gaffe in a Mets-Nationals game to the famous 1960 world series, [describe] a game delayed 52 minutes because of a swarm of bees, baseballs hidden in Wrigley Field's famous ivy, and many other anecdotes which remind us why we love baseball and its unpredictable nature"--FrumForum; "terrific.... Proponents of sabermetrics should do themselves a favor and buy the book to find out if they should have something to think about. Those who have no use for sabermetrics should buy the book to find out why they are on solid footing."--Murray Chass, 2003 J.G. Taylor Spink Award Recipient; "Compelling...authors Sheldon and Alan Hirsch take aim at [the] presumption that baseball is essentially a series of highly predictable results. They call into question the value of many of the advanced statistics that have popped up in recent years...correctly pointing out that it doesn't take more than a handful of short hops (or bad bounces) over the course of a season to yield dramatically different ratings/rankings/statistics."--Kevin Greenstein, Department of Communication and Journalism, Suffolk University; "Good, fun stuff.... The descriptions of bizarre incidents and freak plays make for a good read and is done in a similar vein as some of Rob Neyer's work on the game's historical oddities."--Joe Tarring, columnist for www.fullcountpitch.com.

Reseña del editor:

Sabermetrics, which evaluates baseball through largely objective methods involving statistics, has taken over the sport in recent years. 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, and taking particular note of odd plays and personalities, baseball is presented and examined as a compelling and vibrant sport--a vision that has been blocked by the obsession with numbers ushered in by sabermetrics.
