Kirkus In mercifully plain English, Law explains how the new statistical tools can answer questions that previously baffled baseball experts A must read for everyone who brings a curious head as well as an impassioned heart to the ballpark BooklistFor the past fifteen years, many baseball fans, writers, and commentators have remained mired in the muck of old statisticsbaseball card numbers such as batting average, saves recorded, and a pitchers won lost recordwhile newer, smarter, and at times counterintuitive baseball stats known as sabermetrics have become commonplace throughout Major League Baseball Yet, despite their popularity, confusion persists about these new stats, with much of the baseball world still following the old waya combination of those outdated numbers and gut instinctto evaluate players contributions and careers Baseball, they argue, should be run by people, not by numbers.ESPN senior baseball writer Keith Law, respectfully, or perhaps not so respectfully, disagrees In this provocative book, the outspoken Law takes on the established view of baseball stats, undermining over a centurys worth of baseball dogma With many of these numbers dating back to the beginning of the game, he examines how allegiance to these old stats is firmly rooted, not in the modern game as its played, but in baseballs irrational adherence to tradition Using entertaining anecdotes, logic, and occasionally just a little math, he exposes the flaws in much of the games orthodoxy, from the illusion of clutch performers, to the dishonesty of RBIs, to how the save ruleinvented by a journalisthas ruined bullpens for decades.But Smart Baseball is not just about tearing down tradition Law also offers a clear eyed discussion of the new stats that are helping teams win, changing how players are valued, and altering how we talk about the game Exploring long underappreciated numbers like On Base Percentage, as well as newer stats like Win Probability Added and Wins Above Replacement, he simplifies the math that has gotten in the way for many curious fans, providing understandable explanations of what these numbers measure and why they work better In addition he delves into the future of baseball stats, uncovering the escalating arms race for statistical talent being waged by almost every MLB front office, as the teams search for innovative ways to find the statistical edge on and off the field What emerges is an intelligent, informative, and engaging assault on the baseball establishment Brought to life by Laws unapologetic style, Smart Baseball is an iconoclastic look at the numbers game of baseball, proving why some of the most trusted stats are surprisingly wrong, detailing the numbers that actually work, and revealing what the rise of Big Data
