Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879463007, Paperback)

For the baseball fan wondering why, when and how analytical managers and GMs make key decisions in a game and over a season, this insider’s book explains the practical uses of statistics in baseball. Written in three parts, Behind-the-Scenes Baseball begins with stories from Doug Decatur’s long career as a statistical consultant. Part Two is the GM IQ Test, a test of what every major league manager and GM should know…but doesn’t. Questions are multiple choice, true/false, and essay format. Part Three is a concise look at the Houston Astros 2004 run for the pennant. There is also a short epilogue comparing the Astros’ 2004 and 2005 seasons.
