I will be analyzing the rhetorical strategies of Ball Four over the “Winter Break,” for my AP English class.

I will also be reading Michael Lewis’ best-selling book, Moneyball. It’s supposedly one of the greatest baseball books of all-time. Have you read it, yet?

Best wishes,

Moneyball is great. I’ve indirectly mentioned it when I picked “The Blind Side” as one of my previous picks (figuring most people have read Moneyball but not Blind Side). The glamour of Beane’s approach has suffered a little bit over the past few years, since his results have been down, but there is no question that the statistical approach has a lot of value to it.
