The Neyer/James guide to pitchers : an historical compendium of pitching, pitchers, and pitches by Bill James( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pitchers, the pitches they throw, and how they throw them -- these days it's the stuff of constant scrutiny, but there's never been anything like a comprehensive source for such information. That's what preeminent baseball analyst Bill James and ESPN.com baseball columnist Rob Neyer realized over lunch more than a dozen years ago. Since then, they've been compiling the centerpiece of this book, the "Pitcher Census," which lists specific information for nearly two thousand pitchers, ranging throughout the history of professional baseball. The Guide also offers: -A "dictionary" describing virtually every known pitch -The origins and development of baseball's most important pitches -Top ten lists: best fastballs, best spitballs, and everything in between -Biographies of some of the great pitchers who have been overlooked -More knuckleballers and submariners than you ever thought existed -An open debate concerning pitcher abuse and durability -A formula for predicting the Cy Young Award winner -Something fresh and new: Bill James' "Pitcher Codes" The Neyer/James Guide to Pitchers is about understanding pitchers, and baseball's action always starts with the pitchers. It's also about entertaining debates and having a great deal of fun with the history of a game that obsesses so many
Rob Neyer's big book of baseball blunders : a complete guide to the worst decisions and stupidest moments in baseball history by Rob Neyer( Book )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BLOOPER: BALL SQUIRTS THROUGH BILLY BUCKNER'S LEGS. BLUNDER: BILLY BUCKNER'S MANAGER LEFT HIM IN THE GAME. Baseball bloopers are fun; they're funny, even. A pitcher slips on the mound and his pitch sails over the backstop. An infielder camps under a pop-up ... and the ball lands ten feet away. An outfielder tosses a souvenir to a fan ... but that was just the second out, and runners are circling the bases (and laughing). Without these moments, the highlight reels wouldn't be nearly as entertaining. Baseball blunders, however, can be tragic, and they will leave diehard fans asking why ... why ... why' Rob Neyer's Big Book of Baseball Blunders does its best to answer all those whys, exploring the worst decisions and stupidest moments of managers, general managers, owners, and even commissioners. As he did in his Big Book of Baseball Lineups, Rob Neyer provides readers with a fascinating examination of baseball's rich history, this time through the lens of the game's sometimes hilarious, often depressing, and always perplexing blunders. ' Which ill-fated move cost the Chicago White Sox a great hitter and the 1919 World Series' ' What was Babe Ruth thinking when he became the first (and still the only) player to end a World Series by getting caught trying to steal' ' Did playing one-armed Pete Gray in 1945 cost the Browns a pennant' ' How did winning a coin toss lead to the Dodgers losing the National League pennant on Bobby Thomson's "Shot Heard 'round the World"' ' How damaging was the Frank Robinson-for-Milt Pappas deal, really' ' Which of Red Sox manager Don Zimmer's mistakes in 1978 was the worst' ' Which Yankees trade was even worse than swapping Jay Buhner for Ken Phelps' ' What non-move cost Buck Showalter a job and gave Joe Torre the opportunity of a lifetime' ' Game 7, 2003 ALCS: Pedro winds up to throw his 123rd pitch ... what were you thinking' These are just a few of the legendary (and not-so-legendary) blunders that Neyer analyzes, always with an eye on what happened, why it happened, and how it changed the fickle course of history. And in separate chapters, Neyer also reviews some of the game's worst trades and draft picks and closely examines all the teams that fell just short of first place. Another in the series of Neyer's Big Books of baseball history, Baseball Blunders should win a place in every devoted fan's library

Feeding the Green Monster is an invaluable and unique addition to baseball writing from one of its best informed columnists. In the spring of 2000, baseball fanatic and ESPN.com columnist Rob Neyer set out to live every baseball fan's dream. He would spend the next six months attending every one of the Boston Red Sox's home games. His journal of the season that followed, "Feeding the Green Monster," is a candid look at baseball as it's played today. While there are the ups (when the Red Sox led their division) and the downs (when the Red Sox eventually
