Summary: ''Freakonomics'' meets ''Moneyball'' in this provocative expos of baseballs most fiercely debated controversies and some of its oldest, most dearly held mythsexplained through the language of numbers and cool cash. Two hot topics team up in ''The Baseball Economist,'' and the result is a refreshing, clear- eyed survey of a playing field that has changed radically in recent years.

Bradbury dissects burning baseball topics with his original Sabernomic perspective, such as: Did steroids have ''nothing'' to do with the recent home run records? Incredibly, Bradburys research, reviewed by Stanford economists, reveals steroids had little statistical significance. Is the big-city versus small-city competition really lopsided? Bradbury shows why the Marlins and Indians are likely to dominate big-city franchises in the coming years. Which players are ridiculously overvalued? Bradbury lists all players by team with their revenue value to the team listed in dollarsincluding a dishonor role of those players with negative values. Is major league baseball a monopoly that cant govern itself? Bradbury sets out what rules the owners really need to play by, and what the players union should be doing. Does it help to lobby for balls and strikes? How would Babe Ruth perform in todays game? And who killed all the left-handed catchers, anyway? ''The Baseball Economist'' knows.

Statistics alonearent enough anymore. Fans, fantasy buffs, and players, as well as coaches at all levels who want to grasp what is really happening on the field today and in the coming years, will use and enjoy Bradburys brilliant new understanding of the national pastime. ...show less
