Overview

In 2004, the New York Mets finished 20 games under .500. Two years later, they were the N.L. East champs and finished just one game away from the World Series. In this fun and insightful book, beat reporter Adam Rubin chronicles the rebirth of this beloved franchise. General manager Omar Minaya worked around the clock to sign free agents Pedro Martinez and Carlos Beltran and then, in 2006, traded for Carlos Delgado and Paul Lo Duca. These players, along with future Hall of Famer Tom Glavine and young phenoms Jose Reyes and David Wright, helped turn a struggling team into a pennant contender. The author takes us up to the thrilling postseason series with the Dodgers and Cardinals, culminating in one of the most exciting Game Sevens in recent memory. Fans are sure to enjoy reliving the team's turnaround as they look ahead to what promises to be an exciting future for the Amazin' Mets!
