His Boston Globe colleague may not be a fan of my work (nuf ned), but Peter Abraham — who’s been following me since his days as a beat reporter at the Journal News (LoHud.com), and vice versa — had some kind words to say about The Cooperstown Casebook in his August 18 column:
Voting for the Hall of Fame is a lot of fun and Jay Jaffe has helped solve some tough decisions with his research and interpretation of statistics.
His new book “The Cooperstown Casebook” is a great read if you’re willing to have an open mind about who should be in the Hall.
No writer has studied the Hall more closely than Jaffe in recent years the book reflects both his passion and hard work. Imagine caring about something so much that you came up with a unique way to appreciate it. That’s what Jay did.
