I enjoy reading books about baseball, and I've decided to share an occasional book review in case anyone is interested.
About a month ago my buddy Mark, who is also an Orioles fan, lent me "The Bad Guys Won!", Jeff Pearlman's book about the 1986 Mets and their path to the World Series Championship. I really enjoyed how Pearlman brought the reader behind the scenes into the Mets clubhouse and showed the Mets' true colors. And I would describe the shade as a "puke green".
Most of the players on the team seem cocky, rude, or generally jerkoffish. I don't have any behind-the-scenes knowledge to compare the '86 Mets' clubhouse atmosphere to that of any other past or present team, but I like to think that most teams aren't that ridiculous. I know that many baseball players, especially Major Leaguers, have plenty of self-confidence, but the some of the stories in the book were insane. Entertaining, but insane.
Overall, it's a very enjoyable read, unless you hate the Mets franchise, so if you like baseball books, check it out.
