These are people who love baseball; their purpose is not to destroy our enjoyment of it but to provide better understanding. And if you're impatient, you won't have to wait long — it's in an introductory chapter — for the group's answer to the burning question: Who's the better player, Barry Bonds or Babe Ruth? We won't give it away; you'll have to beg, borrow, buy or steal the book. It's worth it.”
Bob Ryan, Boston Globe
Time and again while reading this book I was dazzled by the intense depth to which these researchers are willing to go.... The depth of their knowledge is not merely formidable or impressive. It is downright frightening.”
New York Times
Freakonomics for statheads.... The Baseball Prospectus team can make just about anything interesting.”
Go to a certain kind of bar, and chances are you will be told that everything you know about baseball is wrong. But, the wise guys at Baseball Prospectus will make you believe it — and enjoy discovering why.”
New York Daily News
One book that will surely fuel the vicious barroom arguments that make the national pastime so much fun is Baseball Between the Numbers by the stat-heads at Baseball Prospectus, a book that brings a meat cleaver to some of the game's most sacred cows.”
Baseball Prospectus takes an inspired approach to the game, blending science and math to bust myths.”
A provocative book that looks at the game in ways not previously imagined.... These are the people making a huge impact on progressive front offices throughout the game.”
Wall Street Journal
For fans in the moderate-to-diehard category, the queries asked and answered within these pages make for surprisingly absorbing, even suspenseful, reading.”

Not a terrible book, but nothing genuinely interesting, either.
All this (by various authors) and more -- with some wonderful trivia thrown in as well -- I looove this book!!!
Scuze me -- I must sit down with a hot dog a pretzel and a beer and read this book again. Catch me later-- at the 7th Inning Stretch.
The newest addition on my bookshelf is Extra Innings. If you are already familiar with Baseball Prospectus, you'll probably buy this book no matter what I have to say about it. But if you've never read one of their previous books, then you should know that you can pick this one up and enjoy it from start to finish. If you're still hesitating, then I suggest you check out the excerpt from Extra Innings that has been published on their free website [...]
I would strongly recommend Baseball Prospectus and Extra Innings for every baseball fan. You can buy it for yourself, of course, but I especially recommend it if you're buying it as a gift for someone else who loves the game.
