I had hoped, by the time you hear this, the New York Mets would still have been in Wold Series. Alas. But even though they lost the fall classic, they still gave their fans a season to remember, one for the books, as the saying goes.
One book that might need revising, thanks to Daniel Murphy’s record-setting home run run in the run-up to the World Series, is Numbers Don’t Lie: Mets: The Biggest Numbers in Mets History, by Russ Cohen and Adam Raider.
I recently spoke with Cohen, who has written several books about baseball and hockey, about the transience of a project like this, where the results and possibilities are always changing.
