Book Excerpt: Billy Martin

Chris Jaffe, a writer for the Hardball Times, has written a book entitled "Evaluating Baseball's Managers, 1876-2008" which will be released in December. An excerpt about former Tigers manager Billy Martin can be found at The Hardball Times. He does a good job describing Martin's unique managerial style and competitive nature and explains how he won despite going against sabermetric principles. If the rest of the book is like this article, then it should be a great read. It can be purchased here.
