Red-Tagged : Dirty Diamonds
A new author makes his debut as he recounts the inspiring professional journey of White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle and the memorable Chicago White Sox 2005 season. Five years in the making, Lee supplements first-hand recollections of observing the memorable events with the data and insights that countless hours of research and critical thinking have gleaned from not one, but two of the most improbable stories in modern baseball. Neither wholly narrative nor wholly statistical, Lee weaves a unique blend of old and new writing styles. Along with just enough math to prove the limits of numbers, Lee spends most of the book restoring the old tradition of writing the human element of baseball, describing the incredible journeys of Mark Buehrle and White Sox broadcaster Ken Harrelson, one of the sport's foremost critics of sabermetric theory. Filled with insights into both the business of baseball and the sport of baseball, Lee's first of two volumes is a thoughtful but decisive addition to the the literature of the sport that no fan should be without.
