4 Armour, Mark PATHS TO GLORY (H)
Potomac Books 2003 157488560X / 9781574885606 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged Explores what historically successful teams have in common and how each team was a product of its time - Evaluates the challenge of every team's balance between long-term planning and taking calculated risks in pursuit of winning it all - Reviews some of the game's most disappointing teams and explains why they came up short An essential experience of being a baseball fan is the hopeful anticipation of seeing the hometown nine make a run at winning the World Series. In Paths to Glory, Mark L. Armour and Daniel R. Levitt review how teams build themselves up into winners. What makes a winning team like the 1900 Brooklyn Superbas or the 1917 White Sox or the 1997 Florida Marlins? And how are these teams different? What makes each championship team a unique product of its time? Armour and Levitt provide the historical context to show how the sports business side has changed dramatically but its competitive environment remains the same. Utilizing new statistics to evaluate a player's value and career patterns, Armour and Levitt explore the teams that took risks, created their own opportunities, and changed the game. How did the Washington Senators achieve the unthinkable and blow past Babe Ruth's Yankees in 1924 and 1925? How did the 1965 Minnesota Twins quickly rise to the top and why did they just as suddenly fall? Did Charlie Finley assemble the last old-fashioned championship team before free agency, or was the Moustache Gang another example of winning by building from within? Why d

10 Berkmann, Marcus RAIN MEN
Abacus Little, Brown 1996 0349107424 / 9780349107424 Paperback Very Good 
There are many cricket books, and they are all the same. 'Don't Tell Goochi e', autobiographical insights of nights on the tiles in Delhi with Lambie a nd the boys; 'Fruit cake days', a celebrated humourist recalls 'ball' - rel ated banter of yore; and Wisden, a deadly weapon when combined with a therm os flask. Rain Men is different. Like the moment the genius of Richie Benau d first revealed itself to you, it is a cricketing epiphany, a landmark in the literature of the game. Shining the light meter of reason into cricket' s incomparable madness, Marcus Berkmann illuminates all the obsessions and disappointments that the dedicated fan and pathologically hopeful clubman s uffers year after year - the ritual humiliation of England's middle order, the partially-sighted umpires, the battling average that reads more like a shoe size. As satisfying as a perfectly timed cover drive, and rather easie r to come by, Rain Men offers essential justification for anyone who has ev er run a team-mate out on purpose or secretly blubbed at a video of Botham' s Ashes.
