Bill James is not a Devil Ray

Living in a rat-infested room below Fenway Park with a door that opens onto a subway tunnel, James works by candle light, carefully transcribing old boxscores into grade school notebooks. A visiting researcher from Baseball Abstract, thinking the door led to a bathroom, opened it and hasn’t been seen since. Each day, James calculates how far away the researcher is now if he hitched a ride on a train going 40 MPH. No job here, Bill. Sorry.
