Jonah Keri’s “The Extra 2%,” [2] is a book about the Tampa Bay Ray and how they used Wall Street strategies to take the team from last place to a contender. It is a fine, brisk read [3], a more intellectually honest version of “Moneyball.” You’ll be smarter for having read it. It should on your short list of baseball reads this spring and it hits the shelves today.

GQ has an excerpt. [4] Dig it…

Buy the book at Amazon. [5]
