Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a book for a fan who likes a big box of popcorn while at a game. It's for a fan who talks to a relative or a friend between pitches and innings, telling stories of Tribe games and teams from long ago--or maybe still second-guessing the manager for a move he made last week. It's for the fan who discovered baseball before the Jacobs Field era, or the young fan who just came to the game with C.C. Sabathia and wants to know more about the team that he has suddenly come to love." --from the introduction by Terry Pluto

From the Inside Flap

What fans don't love to relive the good times of their favorite team? Likewise, in a twisted sort of way, what fans can really resist a self-pitying look back on some of those times that tested their allegiance? The forgettable games, seasons, and plays that made the good times even better? The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Cleveland Indians presents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the Cleveland Indians. It also unmasks the bad, the regrettably awful, and the unflinchingly ugly. In an entertaining and unsparing fashion, this book sparkles with Indians highlights, lowlights, wonderful and wacky memories, legends and goats, the famous and the infamous. You'll relive not only the highs of the 1920 and 1948 championship teams and the team's glorious rebirth during the 1990s, but also the lows of the forgettable 1960s, '70s, and '80s. You'll celebrate the incredible heat of a Bob Feller fastball, but you'll lament the devastation of the Rocky Colavito trade.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Cleveland Indians includes the best and worst Indians teams and players of all time, the most clutch performances and performers, the biggest choke jobs and chokers, and great pennant chases and teams that collapsed down the stretch. There are Indians you loved for all the right reasons and those you couldn't stand, sublime and embarrassing records, and trades both savvy and savagely bad. This book throws in the brawls, fights, rivalries, and much more, all illustrated with compelling photos.

If you're a through-thick-and-thin Indians fan, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Cleveland Indians is especially for you. It will remind you of the great times and bring a knowing smile to your face when you think about sticking with the team through the bad times, proving just how loyal you are. For everyone else, this warts-and-all portrait of the Indians will provide countless goose bumps and laughs.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Best Of All on July 7, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Author Mary Schmitt Boyer is a columnist in the sport section of The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, with the bulk of her writing on pro baseball.

Like the "puff" of a resin bag in the hand of a pitcher, Schmitt Boyer's feature pieces are mostly breezy, hardly controversial and oftentimes forgettable moments after flipping over the page of the newspaper.

In that style, Schmitt Boyer takes a big wind up and lobs up a brief glimpse into the rich - and oftentimes tumultuous - history of the Cleveland Indians. It may be best savored by a young reader or an adult fan who has an appreciation of the club, but is looking to take a seventh-inning stretch in summertime reading.
