Daily Link Roundup

Gordon Edes has a nice interview with Bill James at the Boston Globe website. Part of it is his role with the Red Sox, but it's more of a primer for Gold Mine.

Hat tip to Repoz at BTF, apparently David Wright isn't a big fan of stats:

6. How do you feel about the continued growth in popularity of statistics, especially non-traditional ones?

DW: I don't even know what half the stuff is, but whatever. Baseball's a numbers game and a game of statistics, so the more interest there is in baseball, the better, and that's kind of the trend that the game's going toward is number guys and making sure that guys have those kinds of numbers. I don't have a problem with it, but I don't understand most of it.

Rob Neyer, Rich Lederer, Patrick Sullivan, and Joe Posnanski, why are you still reading this? Go, go! Oh, yeah, the link.
