    Interesting, in baseball sense. But it's really just a collection of ariticles from the last 40 years. The thing that was disappointing, to say the least, is that there was no rhyme or freason to the order of the aritlces. They were grouped in a way that really didn't seem to make sense. It might have painted a much better picture had the author chosen to put them in a linear line, which could have traced his histoy reporting on the team and shown his thoughts in a way that the reader could have matched against the ebb and flow of the franchise in the standings. Sadly, this is NOT a book I would consider re-reading.
