Cheater’s Guide Cover

Since I have a copy of the cover, I thought I’d share.

As always, you can pre-order The Cheater’s Guide to Baseball for the bargain price of $11 and change. And not much change at that.

That is, if you’re curious, a DZ logo on that hat. I’ve asked if they can have a real one made up for me, and they’re looking into it.

    I tried to send you an email to the USSMariner address but not sure if you got it. There is a great chance you ignored it because I call you David to start with (no idea why).

    Anyway, I had a thought about promoting your book so if you are interested please drop me a line at

    How weird, when I look at the Amazon sales rank, it should be fairly high up in the baseball bestsellers, but it’s not.

    Derek, have you looked at It will graph your Amazon rank over time, and also compare a book to others you define. I had actually written (for an author friend) a Windows tray app that queries Amazon via their web services and logs the rank, but I quit after I found this.

    I uh… use TitleZ frequently. Perhaps too often.

    ‘Derek Zumsteg is the author of “Cheater’s Guide To Baseball”‘

    Best About The Author ever?

    Derek, can your paperback edition include an extra chapter called “How To Throw An Organization?”

    My actual about the author reads

    DEREK ZUMSTEG co-authored five editions of the best-selling Baseball Prospectus annual and runs the most popular baseball web site ever, U.S.S. Mariner. He took the “World’s Smartest Human 2004” title, was named People Magazine’s 101st most beautiful person three consecutive years, and climbed Mt. Everest twice in one year to show Jon Krakauer what’s up. He also contributes to and cheats at baseball, football, basketball, golf, poker, and his author bio.
