    The 1936 Yankees, the 1963 Dodgers, the 1975 Reds, the 2010 Giants - why do some baseball teams win while others don't?

    General managers and fans alike have pondered this most important of baseball questions. The Moneyball strategy is not the first example of how new ideas and innovative management have transformed the way teams are assembled. Pursuit of Pennants examines and analyzes a number of compelling, winning baseball teams over the past 100-plus years, focusing on their decision making and how they assembled their championship teams.

    Whether through scouting, integration, instruction, expansion, free agency, or modernizing their management structure, each winning team and each era had its own version of Moneyball, where front office decisions often made the difference. Mark L. Armour and Daniel R. Levitt show how these teams succeeded and how they relied on talent both on the field and in the front office. While there is no recipe for guaranteed success in a competitive, ever-changing environment, these teams demonstrate how creatively thinking about one's circumstances can often lead to a competitive advantage.

    "A great source of well-researched front office stories. . . . Armour and Levitt give an insider's look at the teams' efforts to innovate in this highly competitive industry." (Sig Mejdal, director of Decision Sciences for the Houston Astros)
    "A rare combination of a must-have reference book and engaging storytelling by distinguished baseball historians Armour and Levitt." (Vince Gennaro, president of the Society for American Baseball Research)
    "Armour and Levitt have given the reader an inside look into the different cultures and challenges facing professional sports executives. Their management styles might differ, but the objective never changes: ‘Be a consistent winner.'" (Pat Gillick)

    Disappointing To This Baseball Fan

    I thought that this was a book that related what the management of each the highlighted franchises or as Mr. Arnott said it or gan i zations did to build their championships. Instead what it delivered was merely a recitation of players drafted and trades made along with the identity and background of the team executives. This book is certainly not another Moneyball; in fact not even another The Extra 2% by Jonah Keri or Big Data Baseball by Travis Sawchick. This book is information that anyone could get for free by Googling Baseball Reference.
