Matt Bishoff, Darysbay.com (A Tampa Bay Rays blog): What is your favorite baseball-related book and who is your favorite baseball writer?
Jim Callis: Just one baseball book? That’s tough! I’m going to have to throw out a few, and I’m sure I’m missing some obvious ones. My favorites would include the Bill James Baseball Abstracts, the Roger Angell compilations, Dollar Sign On The Muscle by Kevin Kerrane, Lords Of The Realm by John Helyar, The Ticket Out by Michael Sokolove, The Soul Of Baseball by Joe Posnanski . . . I’ll stop there, but I could go on. My favorite writer right now would be either Posnanski or Jerry Crasnick (also liked his book, “License To Deal”). They both are excellent writers as well as very informative.
