Description

Seasoned pitchers Tom Glavine and Mike Mussina have seen it all in the Major Leagues, and both entered 2007 in search of individual milestones and one more shot at the World Series-Glavine with the Mets, Mussina five miles away with the Yankees. The two veterans experience very different seasons-one on a team dealing with the pressure to get to a World Series for the first time in seven years, the other with a team expected to be there every year. Taking the reader through contract negotiations, spring training, the ups of wins and the downs of losses, and the people in their lives-family, managers, pitching coaches, agents, catchers, other pitchers-Feinstein provides a true insider's look at the pressure cooker of sports at the highest level.

  • (4/5)
    It's a long season, the baseball cliche goes, and this is a correspondingly long book.IMO it could have been about 100 pages shorter, but it does hold interest. And Feinstein has an excellent sense of what behind-the-scenes info we really want to know about athletes and their trade.

    Feinstein delves into major league pitching and pitchers. Nobody gets to the heart and meat of a sport like he does.
