    A Funny, Sad Tale of How The Mighty Fell

    Amazingly for a book written by sportswriters (the masters of condensation) this book is a well written, riveting tale from end to end. The authors, having had intimate connections with the Mets from the 1980s onward, were firsthand witnesses to the fall of the franchise from its 80s domination to a cellar dwelling laughingstock. While the subject of the book is centered around the dreadful, boring 1992 Mets, the authors show how that team came about ¿ and why the Mets, from World Champions with a robust farm system in 1986, came to such a low point only six years later. This in depth look also lets some Mets off the hook (the rape charges against Gooden were bogus, as was the infamous accusation about David Cone¿s ¿bullpen show¿) while taking others to task (Eddie Murray was every bit as bad as his reputation said, Vince Coleman was a turf monster). Every baseball executive ¿ or at least the Mets front office ¿ should consider this book required reading, as should any Mets fan. A great gift if you can get your hands on a copy.
