    January 22, 2015: Book Review: Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis, and the Quest to End Baseball’s Steroid Era

    by Tim Elfrink and Gus Garcia-Roberts I have never been a fan of Alex Rodriguez. Always thought he was disingenuous at best (The whole “I’m probably pretty sure it will all work out” statement before he bailed on the Rangers), and a cheater at worst (Slapping the ball out of Bronson Arroyo’s glove during the […]

    Book Review: I Don’t Care if We Never Get Back,
    by Ben Blatt and Eric Brewster

    We all have that one friend. The one we would follow to the end of the earth on whatever crazy scheme or adventure they came up with. Even though you promised after the park bench in Poughkeepsie incident (don’t ask), you would never, EVER, again, somehow they always seem to get you to agree to […]

    April 05, 2014: Book Review: The Devil’s Snake Curve: A Fan’s Notes from Left Field, by Josh Ostergaard

    Baseball can be a very funny sport. As many of us are fond of saying, “Its baseball, anything can happen–and usually does” We have all heard the stories of the player who went on the DL because he fell out of bed and hurt himself, or how a team can have the best record in […]

    The Most Wonderful Week of the Year,
    by Roy Berger.

    When I was younger, I played Little League, where I pitched some, played some infield and outfield, and even caught a couple of times. I wasn’t the worst, but I was certainly not a superstar. Today, my interest in the sport has grown to a more sedentary perspective. I love to watch my beloved Sox […]

    Book Review: Color Blind:
    The Forgotten Team That Broke Baseball’s
    Color Line, by Tom Dunkel

    Everyone knows the story of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier when he played 1st base for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947. And everyone knows that when Mariano Rivera retires this year that will be the last time #42 (Robinson’s Number) will be worn by a player. He is celebrated for his bravery, […]

    Book Review: Long Shot
    By Mike Piazza, with Lonnie Wheeler

    Anyone who has watched baseball in the last 15 year, no matter what team you root for, knows who Mike Piazza is: (Probable) Hall of Famer (He garnered 57.8% in voting his first year on the ballot), probably one of, if not THE best hitting catchers of all time, and, the NY Met whom Roger […]
