After my relative success selling my book at CubsCon, I have been getting some direct e-mails and questions from BNers about purchasing the book.  Yes, it is on Amazon...but Amazon is not very kind to authors(I get a whopping 13% of the sales).  I am looking at potential distributors for the upcoming season, but I can still sell them directly to the BN faithful.  I need an address, who to inscribe to, and how you plan to pay.  You can pay me directly through PayPal, a check through the mail(although I now will have to wait to send until the check clears...had a bad one)...and I am now set up with all major credit cards.


105's(2nd Edition) 15.75 including shipping, 104's(1st edition) 10.75 including shipping


Contact me at BBCG105Reasons@yahoo.com or directly via twitter @BBCG105Reasons...

Hi from Sweden Chris!

I'll have to get my order in to you. How about international shipping? There was a great sports writer, Leonard Koppett was his name. In the '60's, he wrote a book called "A Thinking Man's Guide to Baseball" A great book, I don't know if you ever read it or not. Then, in the 1990's, he updated it calling it " A Thinking Fan's Guide to Baseball" which was also excellent. Both books went into every aspect of the game.

My point is: Having read his books over and over again, as it's part of my Spring Training Ritual and having read your first edition, I don't get what people have to complain about as far as the Cubs are concerned. In the 2.5 years since the new regime has been here, the Cubs have gone from worst to first in terms of a minor league system. There has been enormous progress made there. To think that those guys could come in and "presto changeo, we have a World Series Winner" is just folly. We're starting the third season with the new regime, it's far too early to even thing about being competitive. I'm just ready for Baseball. Spring Training starts in a bit over two weeks, can't wait. Go Cubs Go!
