Neat interview with James…and check out Rich Lederer’s bit, as he will be introducing Bill at the Shrine of the Eternals! Woooeee!
Q: I was re-reading your thoughts about the decade of the 1990s in “The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract,” and I was struck by how you did not mention performance-enhancing drugs. At all. If you do another revision at the end of this decade, will you talk about the Steroids Era?
A: Perhaps, but a) I don’t think people were talking much about PEDs at the time that I was writing that book; b) Even if they were, I really don’t know much of anything about them, and I’m reluctant to write about things that I don’t know much about; c) The fact that everybody else may regard that era as the steroid era doesn’t necessarily make it true in my eyes. So, I don’t know how I’ll feel about it when the dust settles. I’m trying to figure it out.
