Lance

I skimmed Postal's book, and my fear was that the grumpiness overwhelmed the accuracy. (Of course, being from MIT, my view of the accuracy may differ from yours; certainly from his.)

AJ

Postal's essays are available on his website.

AJ: I already shelled out $30 or so for the book. Not gonna return it now. Besides, for what it's worth, I like reading anything longer than news articles or blog entries on actual print.

Lance: I don't doubt in the slightest that there will be a few stolen bases and arguable assertions. If I think his rants are out of line, I'll say so. He just caught me in the mood for a good rant.
