THT: Bill James Interview

Chris Jaffe at The Hardball Times talks with Bill James. In addition to learning that among Toronto's rickshaw drivers, James is an absolute GOD, we also find out:

He has a new book -- "about 15 articles and hundreds of little notes, most of them illustrated by a chart" -- due very soon (Baseball's Gold Mine), as well as a website (Bill James Online).

Also, he says the greatest rock'n'roll album of all-time is Jefferson Airplane's Volunteers. Hmmm. I'd like to see his chart for that one.

And why do Toronto pedicab drivers idolize Bill James?

Gotta read the intro to the interview.

Oh well. I guess I'll never know.
