Bits and pieces, Dec. 18

501 update:  Received the index back for a bit of very minor revising. Then it’s really done. Gratified by the very early interest by members of the media in doing reviews.

Bruce Markusen over at The Hardball Times offers another in his series of “baseball card mysteries.” This time it’s Dave Nelson’s 1973  Topps.

Speaking of baseball cards, Beyond the Box Score posted this piece on a site that has nothing better to do than take perfectly fine pieces of cardboard and turn them into something unholy.

Now I’m certainly no math wiz, but I did enjoy A Beautiful Mind. So with that in mind, THT’s Matt Schwartz  is posting a week-long series on “Game Theory and Baseball.”

Please, Lord, say it isn’t so. Not a Pete Rose reality show!

And because you can’t write no good English with which to make baseball books without punctuation, Value Over Replacement grit offers these “teams” so inclined.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
