Video: Bill James chats it up on 'Geoff Baker Live'

Mar 17, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

If you’ve ever wondered what Bill James looks like, sounds like, and thinks like, check out the video of Geoff Baker from the Seattle Times interviewing him for over an hour yesterday.
Some really interesting stuff, including James’ thoughts on the current state of sabermetrics (a word he literally invented), the Mariners’ chances this season, Edgar Martinez’s case for the Hall of Fame, and what the next frontier in baseball analysis might be.
James often comes across as introverted, particularly on camera, but Baker did a nice job turning the show into more of a conversation than an interview and I actually watched the whole thing live from start to finish.

    Listening to Bill James: gold. Listening to the babbling brook that is Geoff Baker: torture.

    Bill seems gained a couple fifty pounds since last time he appeared on camera

    Yeah, but we’re not selling jeans here.
