The MVP Machine: How Baseball's New Nonconformists Are Using Data to Build Better Players

The MVP Machine: How Baseball’s New Nonconformists Are Using Data to Build Better Players by Ben Lindbergh

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This was a pretty interesting book about the data revolution in baseball. One of the main people it follows is Trevor Bauer, who as an Astros fan (and non-crazy person) I guess I’m obliged to dislike? But the stuff he’s done has been pretty interesting.

Honestly I should have liked this book more than I did – it covers a wide range of topics and it’s pretty well written – but I struggled to get through it. Maybe I’m getting tired of baseball books? But if you’re at all interested in modern baseball I’d recommend it.
