I am not bad with my math, having taken calculus, diffeq and what not, but I am very interested to start digging around with sabermetrics. What is better than combining two hobbies? Does anyone here know any, and if so, where do you start learning it from? Is there a good resource for learning sabermetrics? Any good sabermetric books?

Introduction to Baseball Analysis and Sabermetrics
by Steve Slowinski | 7 Chapters | 1.4 hours
Do you love baseball, yet get scared and/or confused whenever people start throwing around terms like OPS, VORP, FIP, UZR, or wOBA? These terms can seem overwhelming at first, but when broken down piece-by-piece, even the casual, everyday baseball fan can understand what they mean and learn how to apply them properly. These statistics are merely tools that will help you understand baseball to a greater depth and allow you to analyze baseball games and players more effectively.

These are where I started. The top one is recent, but I found the series very informative.
