Some of the best works of pop philosophy are built around finding the connections between big thought systems and everyday tasks. Perhaps the most famous of these works blending the metaphysical and the mundane is Robert Pirsig’s 1974 bestseller “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,” though there are plenty of other examples out there.

A Cooperstown conversation with Jay Jaffe

What makes someone a baseball Hall of Famer?

Finding a useful answer to that question is trickier than you might think. That hasn’t stopped author Jay Jaffe from trying to find a way – to create one, really; his new book “The Cooperstown Casebook: Who’s In the Hall of Fame, Who Should Be In, and Who Should Pack Their Plaques” (Thomas Dunne, $25.99) is a meticulously-researched and engagingly-written work that not only celebrates the greats in the Hall, but also points out a few of the greats still stuck outside the gates and a number of mediocre players who snuck in through luck and/or cronyism.
