Revue de presse

“Fascinating…reads like a mash up of Liar’s Poker and Moneyball.”—Publishers Weekly

“[A] swaggering story from frantic stock trader to professional sports bettor....Even casual baseball fans could learn from it. Serious fans should slurp it up like ballpark beer.”—Los Angeles Times
“He reminds me of Nate Silver—he’s able to blend different worlds (in this case, baseball and finance) using his intense knowledge of each to give us a very entertaining read.”—Play-by-Play Announcer for the San Francisco Giants and ESPN National Sportscaster Dave Flemming

“Peta created a reliable system for beating Vegas odds throughout the 2011 Major League season…but it’s clear he loves the game as much as the winnings. Moreover, he asks a number of salient questions, such as: How can businesses on Wall Street and beyond apply thinking used by baseball sabermetricians to strengthen their own organizations? The answers, and how Peta arrived at them, make for great reading.”—Booklist

Présentation de l'éditeur

An ex–Wall Street trader improved on Moneyball’s famed sabermetrics and beat the Vegas odds with his own betting methods. Here is the story of how Joe Peta turned fantasy baseball into a dream come true.
Joe Peta turned his back on his Wall Street trading career to pursue an ingenious—and incredibly risky—dream. He would apply his risk-analysis skills to Major League Baseball, and treat the sport like the S&P 500.
In Trading Bases, Peta takes us on his journey from the ballpark in San Francisco to the trading floors and baseball bars of New York and the sportsbooks of Las Vegas, telling the story of how he created a baseball “hedge fund” with an astounding 41 percent return in his first year. And he explains the unique methods he developed.
Along the way, Peta provides insight into the Wall Street crisis he managed to escape: the fragility of the midnineties investment model; the disgraced former CEO of Lehman Brothers, who recruited Peta; and the high-adrenaline atmosphere where million-dollar sports-betting pools were common.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 NOT ENOUGH INFORMATION 6 février 2016
Par black neon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
To me, this was a tale of two stories. In the first part the author demonstrates his in-depth knowledge of all things baseball. His knowledge of the statistical side of the game is off the charts - to the point of being overwhelming to the lay person. All of this is mixed together with experiences as a Wall Street trader and makes for an interesting read. It was at this point, after he has demonstrated his knowledge, that I hoped he would explain, IN DETAIL how converted his insights into cash by betting.

This was where the book fell apart for me. Peta is reputed to have made a "fortune" betting on baseball, but we will have to take his word for it. (Given his work on Wall Street in the 90s, a "fortune" might be relative, however.) What I wanted to know were things like the following: who took his bets - Las Vegas casinos? A bookie? Off shore casinos? Other persons at work? How much did he actually bet? What kind of money management did he employ? What did his equity curve look like? Anyone who knew Peta was (or should have been) aware that he would certainly fit the description of "smart" or "sharp" money and this would have made getting bets down difficult, no matter where. To make a "fortune," you have to move a large amount of money around in some manner. You are allowed to do many things in a casino, but winning large amounts of money consistently, (especially betting on sports) is not among them. You'd be 86ed or have the amounts you could wager cut severely. Spreading his action around would have helped. In the end, I'm guessing he did something altogether different, but if he won a fortune, then someone on the other side of his bets lost a fortune. These things, among others, are the details I hoped to read about. Unfortunately, no specific details about how he made his money are forthcoming. If you are considering buying the book for this reason, don't. If you enjoy enjoy baseball, especially the "numbers" and strategy side of it, Trading Bases is an enjoyable read.

Don't go thinking you're going to read this book and make money betting on baseball. This guy had a lot of time on his hands, a Wall Street background, and a very firm grasp of Sabermetrics in order to develop his "model" that lead to his success. I wish I had been one of his friends that gave him money in 2011 because I got killed on betting on MLB last season (and I've been watching MLB for over 30 years, and I studied every starting pitcher every day). That being said, if you want to read about his story I found this a surprisingly good read. He's either a naturally decent writer or he had a ghost writer. Keep in mind, I love reading about Wall Street, so be prepared for that subject to come up often. I particularly enjoyed the NFL "over/under" for the season chapter. Not a crash course on Sabermetrics but some good introductory information (if you're not into Sabermetrics why are reading this book?). Good perspective if you do want to make some wagers. Good luck duplicated Joe Peta's model.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Joe hit a Grand Slam! 30 septembre 2016
Par Amazon Lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
In the world of sports betting, finding an excellent book to read is similar to finding a needle in a haystack. This book is that needle.

Trading Bases is a very well-written memoir that takes you on a journey from Joe's days as a Wall Street broker to building and operating a baseball fund during a summer in Las Vegas. It has a mix of baseball stats, financial lingo, and a bit of gambling strategy intertwined into the story to keep you entertained. A curious mind will be educated on how to successfully approach baseball betting by reading this book as well.

This is easily one of the best books in the area of sports betting. It would be a wise move to add this enjoyable read to your collection.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Too much baseball and not enough in the way of algorithms and mathematics 11 décembre 2014
Par Ian K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
One of the best books I've read on predictive modeling is Steven Skiena's book Calculated Bets: Computers, Gambling, and Mathematical Modeling to Win (2001). In this book, Prof. Skiena describes a project he did with his students modeling the game of Jai Alai. Predictive modeling has been applied successfully in sports betting, so when I saw the book Trading Bases, I bought it. Unfortunately, the books dives deeply into the minutia of baseball, without providing much meat when it comes to describing the models that the author built to predict baseball out comes. I'm sure that for someone who is fascinated by baseball and baseball statistics, this book would have been more interesting. But for a practitioner of algorithmic modeling, this book struck out.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A smart book about numbers wrapped in an enlightening memoir. 11 avril 2013
Par Chad M. Supp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I bought Trading Bases on the recommendation of the smartest guy writing about baseball today, Joe Sheehan. My interest was in the author's application of modern sabermetrics to create an edge in baseball wagering. I was fascinated by this process, and very much enjoyed the author presenting the numbers in step-by-step detail (he shows his math). However, the parts of Trading Bases I found most interesting were the memoir chapters that describe the author's experience with Wall Street, from his college recruitment to his experience with the complete breakdown of a global banking giant, as well as his unique insight into what exactly went wrong, and why it wasn't properly fixed. Which presents interesting contrasts for the book - because the Wall Street chapters are so profound and deal with such a large, looming subject, the chapters about baseball, advanced metrics, and sports wagering can feel somewhat small and overshadowed. The author attaches deep personal meaning to baseball, and his overall process is detailed in the context of healing and recovery and professional transition, so it's not that these chapters don't have weight. But for the reader, you may be well into the book, looking for a little more Michael Lewis and a little less Nate Silver. I recommend the book, and will buy Joe Peta's next book, especially if it's more narrowly focused on the world of trading desks, hedge funds, and global finance.
