Baseball got ahead of them this time!

Reading IndiaUncut's post on sabermetrics in basketball, I was reminded of a fascinating book called Moneyball, that came out some time in 2003. Written by Michael Lewis (of "Liar's Poker" fame), it's about Billy Beane, the general manager of a baseball team (the Oakland As) that can't afford any of the star players and has the lowest payroll in their league, to the top of the league - using a heady cocktail of old-fashioned scouting methods and new age data mining. It's a great book - you can follow it well enough even if you don't know much about the game and Lewis is a natural storyteller. Read the NY Times review of the book here if you'd like to know more.
