Being one of the millions of people who got caught up in the Moneyball movement, I'm excited that 60 Minutes is planning to do a feature story on author and Red Sox Consultant Bill James in the near future. Via the Providence Journal's Sawx Blog....
A crew from ``60 Minutes'' is here this morning, led by longtime correspondent Morley Safer. The show is preparing a feature on Bill James, who serves as a consultant to the Sox and is the father of the sabermetrics movement and statistical analysis.The father of Sabermetrics should be an interesting interview and I always love 60 Minutes' trips into the world of Sports (yes, even the Derek Jeter interview).
Safer plans to interview a number of people from the Baseball Operations staff and manager Terry Francona about James later today.
