I Evoke Brow XXIV: That a yotta reviews, hyuk, hyuk, hyuk

Dollar Sign on the Muscle: The World of Baseball Scouting, Kevin Kerrane

A woefully dated book, but the scouts’ anecdotes are still fun. The degree to which the scouting world was hidebound still amazes. Beyond the outrageous characters and stories, the parts that I found interesting were those that examined the few front office personnel who fought the overwhelming flow of bullshit.

The description of the history and evolution of scouting are well done, if that’s what you’re looking for. All in all, a forgettable book.
