Pros: gives insight into what the players are actually feeling/thinking at certain points throughout the pennant race. The actuals tend t be much different than what is put out by the media. The language makes you feel like you're sitting talking to Shieldsy one on one. I do remember all of the big moments in the games he is reliving and that is pretty cool.
Cons: very redundant at points (Chapter 1 especially). At times you feel like he is just repeating himself to fill pages and it gets old quickly. The language makes you feel like you're sitting talking to Shieldsy one on one - I know I placed this as a Pro HOWEVER the language is a bit annoying at times, many grammatical and spelling mistakes in this book.
Overall I am enjoying it....just know what you are getting.
Shields delivers a refreshing look at the pressures faced as each game has so much meaning as they battle for the Division title in baseball's toughest Division. These pressures are compounded by the emotions associated with knowing the team as configured in 2010 will change dramatically, as free-agency looms for many of the stars of the team.
Chastain captures the pressures and emotions beautifully, much as he did in "Payne at Pinehurst".

Great, great baseball book. Shields does a wonderful job of describing September 2010 without bad mouthing or airing dirty laundry. Very insightful and well written. I enjoyed it!Published on October 17, 2011 by Scott Bills
