    For Baseball Fans

    Decent work by Feinstein, who has done much better in the past. This book really should be titled "Glavine, with a little Mussina". I'm not sure if Mussina was added later as an afterthought, but probably 65-70% of the book is about Glavine and his season.

    I was a little surprised with the amount of excuses that are given for Glavine's failures, some are by Feinstein and some are by Glavine himself. Everything is the umps fault, which is a theme drummed on throughout the book. That part is frustratingly humorous if you remember seeing TG pitch in the playoffs in the 90s and 2000s, regularly getting favorable calls on pitches not even close to the zone. Glavine had a HOF career. There's no need for the excuses.

    If you're a baseball fan, especially a fan of good pitching and some of the science of that part of the game, then this is a good read. If not, if you prefer 14-12 games with lots of HRs, not for you.

    Fantastic

    I am a huge baseball fan so this book was great. I'm into baseball history but I'm also still only 21 years old so it was neat to read about a season that I was actually alive to see! Lastly, as a Mets fan it's cool to relive the season Tom Glavine won 300 games...how frickin' long it took him to get there and the end of his Mets career that still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

    Book For All Baseball Lovers

    This book is a great book for those who like baseball. I recommend this book to anyone who likes the game. This book is a great story about two pitchers who struggle through different problems during the year. It tells the story of these two guys and how they have become such sports icons. I recommend this book for anyone who wants a good read about a great game.
