Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Quite a few years ago, Billy Joel sang that "the Yankees get the headlines every time".

Not so.

The truth be told, the Mets have garnered more than their fair share of headlines over the course of the last 50 some odd years - Yankees be damned.

With that in mind, I read "162-0: Imagine a Mets Perfect Season", and it confirmed that Billy's assertion was not altogether accurate because "The Amazin's" have certainly played many memorable games.

In this book, which chronicles the most noteworthy games that the Mets have won since their incarnation in 1962, Howie Karpin has described a season's worth of competitions where the Mets have shined, and he has done so in an excellent fashion.

For starts, the range of games outlined is as wide as one could imagine, played in six different decades, and it spans from one of the most famous (and infamous) baseball games ever played, Game 6 of the 1986 World Series (do the names Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner ring a bell?) to a curious scorekeeping anomaly that same year when the Mets retired 27 Philadelphia Phillies batters without even one assist being logged - amazing!

Moreover, Mr. Karpin's book is an altogether enjoyable, very readable and quite edifying work because it is balanced in its approach and otherwise well written. In other words, the author does not take on the shrill tone of a rabid Mets fan, but at the same time, he does not hide a passion for one of baseball's most intriguing franchises, and the prose employed is direct and to the point, but far from being at all dry, dreary or boring.

In sum, Mr. Karpin has written a solid tome that every baseball fan - regardless of any team affiliation - will enjoy because it's a first-rate book that's not only an engagingly good read, but informative and fun as well.
