Another in a series of “Is this book really necessary?”

December 8, 2015

Let me start off by saying I find Keith Hernandez quite enjoyable in his capacity as one of the TV announcers for the NY Mets. He speaks his mind and is quite informative and entertaining, even if he gets perhaps a tiny bit  politically incorrect at times and falls into the old-vet-in-the-booth stereotype of saying things were better in his day.

Hernandez has already published a couple of good books, both with the assistance of Mike Bryan — If at First: A Season With the Mets, released in the middle of the 1986 season, as opposed to after the Mets won the World Series — and Pure Baseball, one of those analytic-type titles, in 1994 (and one of those included in 501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read before They Die).

But is this one really necessary? At least my wife will think so; she was a huge Keith fan back in the day.
