However, Diamonds Gems left me unsatisfied. The book is divided by position, each position starring players or managers who shares something out of his bag of experiences. Some of the stories are of moderate interest, some others features events any baseball fan knows about (like A-Rod letting Ripken Jr handling short-stop duties at the all-star game).
Some baseball critics compared Diamond Gems with "The Glory of their Times", but believe me, those same critics will find Juan Pierre as good a player as Ty Cobb... Pierre isn't bad, but he isn't Cobb either. Same with Diamond Gems.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it and recommend it to all lovers of the game.
And I mean the real game of baseball of the past. Not so much todays game of codiling players and wiping their noses for every little itch and discomfort and then pay $zillions.
Pitching a complete game nowadays is BIG DEAL. When McCarver played -- it was a given and well earned.
