Publisher's Summary

This best-selling, highly-acclaimed account is a hilarious but scathing baseball tell-all. After being voted the 1977 American League Cy Young Award winner, Sparky Lyle was rewarded for his efforts by being benched. The Yankees, a leader of free agency, signed Goose Gossage as their closer. Things only went downhill from there and the 1978 season turned out to be one of controversy, firings, fights, and acrimony. In short, it was a zoo.

    "Great memories"

    Good book. Was so controversial when it came out. Now looking back. It was just a fun book. Sparky reading it made it better. He would laugh telling funny stories. I remember that season like yesterday. I was 10 yrs old and thought those players were gods.

    "I am biased"

    I love this book but it is because the 1978 Yankees are one of my all time favorite teams. This book was also one of the first long and adult books I read as a kid so revisiting it beings a lot of good memories. Love the book and the story but again there is a tremendous amount of good vibe bias in this review.
