    No, I read the book and have been a fan since I was a kid. This is not Money Ball. They set a record for strikes outs this year. Come on

    Ditto. We have a ways to go, but maybe a Battle of Bay again. That would be FANTASTIC!

    agreed,,,this story is actually renewing my interest in baseball.....the free agent domination of a few teams has turned the sport into a total borefest
