"I enjoyed Keith’s first book, Smart Baseball, but my main problem with it was that there wasn’t enough Keith Law in the book. I’ve known Keith for two decades, and he’s a very funny writer with a sharp wit, wit that he largely set aside to present the ideas in Smart Baseball. In The Inside Game, Law throws more fastballs, and he throws more curves, making his points with generous dollops of the humor and even snark that have been big parts of his repertoire for decades."
