Ok, I am suddenly inspired. Help me gather ideas for an upcoming book known as MartyBall--How I Would Remake the Cincinnati Reds. The scouts had their response to Moneyball, now its time for the real in-the-know guys to sound off--the men in the booth.
One thing is set in stone--the foreward will be written by none other than former Reds' great Joe Morgan.
Where you read about Scott Hatteberg as a case study into Billy Beane's thinking, Norris Hopper will be the subject of an entire chapter.
Other chapters to include:
Why I Loathe Adam Dunn (not as a person, but as a ballplayer)
Home Runs are Overrated
Playing the Game the Right Way
I Have Been Here Longer
Telling It Like It Is
Feel free to provide your own chapter title suggestions and material for the pages therein.
