Bill James To Be Featured On 60 Minutes

Wednesday, February 27, 2008


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.

Safer plans to interview a number of people from the Baseball Operations staff and manager Terry Francona about James later today.
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).

Waiting... (Projo)

Bill James is a four-letter word to me. If I ever see him on the streets, I'll knock him on his ass.

How does Joe Morgan feel, you know, about this?

Moneyball was the biggest piece of garbage ever written. It worked better than NyQuil.

i'll admit that moneyball is not a great book, but it's still the only book i've ever finished in one day and to be honest it changed my life. i know that's kind of sad but i'm dealing with it.
