First off, let me say that the next best thing to the Head First line of books is the Hacks line. And when I saw a Hacks book about baseball I almost flipped backwards out of my chair. Yup, the latest book in the Hacks line is…
Baseball Hacks – Tips & Tools for Analyzing and Winning with Statistics
If it wasn’t Valentine’s Day I’d make a detour on my way home and buy Baseball Hacks today. I’ll try to have it by the weekend and review it next week.
FYI.. Pitchers and Catchers report tomorrow (for the Cubs).

Let us know what you think of the book. I picked it up too.
Hope you enjoy the book. I actually do, and I don’t even care about Baseball or Data mining.

You’re a good brother. To read a baseball/data-mining book when you don’t care about either subject has got to be painful. I’ll let you know what I think about the book.
My special order came in yesterday and I’ll be picking it up today.
