Anatomy of a Draft by John Barr - Behind the Lineup

A good peek behind the curtain of the 2012 Draft. I'd read a Moneyball-style book about the 2012 Giants draft alone. So would you. But we're nerds, and this is the best we'll get. For now.

Breaking Up With The 2012 Pittsburgh Pirates - Baseball Nation
This has nothing to do with the Giants, but I'm not above a little self-promotion. Or a lot. The talk about the 2012 Pirates actually reminds me a lot of what Giants fans heard with the 1997 Giants. A lot of Pythagorean Record talk. A lot of dismissive stuff. And, sure, it's exceedingly unlikely for the Pirates to keep this up. But it was for the 1997 Giants, too.
