I read another book on the new science of baseball statistics, The Baseball Economist by JC Bradbury.

The only thing that matters for pitchers is DIPS. In the other post, I forgot to put hit by pitch on this list with walks, homeruns, and strikeouts.

This book is much more mathematical. I sometimes got lost. It is written by an economics professor.

He also discusses steroids in the book. James has been interested in this subject and he sheds some light on it. James has pointed out that glasses and laser surgeries and cortisone shots are artificial aids. So is Tommy John surgery.
