Haven't read Bill James yet, though I've heard lots of good things about him, so I can't personally comment.

Why aren't his books procedurals. Is the police work deliberately and pointedly inaccurate? Is there not even a pretense of accuracy a la Elizabeth Linnington?
 If the police work is accurately depicted (or even purported to be accurate), then it is a police procedural.
