Críticas:

Praise for "Baseball Maverick" "For the general manager of a New York team, Sandy Alderson remains largely a mystery. Steve Kettmann changes that with this compelling inside look at the Ivy League graduate, former Marine and Vietnam veteran who went on to revolutionize baseball. A must-read for Mets fan and anyone who loves the game."--Ken Rosenthal, Fox Sports/MLB Network "Kettmann's solid profile of the Mets' Alderson, now piloting one of the brightest teams in major league baseball, provides worthwhile insider tidbits, along with a competent view of the front office and the intriguing complexities of sports politics."--"Publishers Weekly" "A savvy story . . . A seasoned sportswriter's take on the unconventional general manager of the New York Mets and the business side of baseball."--Shelf Awareness "Revealing . . . [Alderson] gave serious access to Kettmann, an astute reporter."--George Vecsey "In "Baseball Maverick," Steve Kettmann paints an intimate portrait of one of the shrewdest, most decorated men to ever occupy the GM chair. The level of detail here is phenomenal, and the result is a really fun read."--Jonah Keri, author of "The Extra 2% and Up, Up, & Away" "Steve Kettmann expertly takes you along the fascinating journey of a true Renaissance man. From combat to the roots of modern analytics to rebuilding the New York Mets--I'll let you decide the most difficult of such pursuits--Sandy Alderson is a compelling case study of leadership."--Tom Verducci, Senior Writer, "Sports Illustrated" "Sandy Alderson's character and credentials are among the most impressive in baseball. He is an original thinker and a true maverick . . . the title says it all. A book about Sandy is long overdue, and Kettmann's is outstanding."--Dennis Eckersley "Sandy Alderson stumbled into baseball, but as Steve Kettmann shows so adroitly, he's put a best foot forward everywhere he's marched in the game. If, under his aegis, Alderson's Mets can finally come back to glory, it will cap the career of a man who has not only led his teams, but led the whole sport."--Frank Deford "A fascinating and enlightening book on one of baseball's mystery men. Kettmann does a brilliant job delivering a behind-the-scenes look at how Alderson built this team to win in 2015."--Bob Nightengale, "USA Today" baseball columnist "Steve Kettmann has given us so much more than a baseball book or biography; he has given us a fascinating look into one of the game's great minds. Sandy Alderson defies any simple description, but Kettmann has brilliantly painted a portrait that ties together the Marine, the scholar, the general manager, and the maverick streak that binds them together."--T.J. Quinn, ESPN reporter and anchor "Offers [a] revealing view of Madoff-impacted Mets."--Howard Megdal, "Capital New York" "Steve Kettmann has long taken readers into the unexplored reaches of baseball, the places the game's poets bypass but where history--the real kind; not the fairy-tale stuff--is made. In "Baseball Maverick," he has given us the pre-Moneyball story of a man and new ways of thinking about the game. It's really, really good."--Bryan Curtis, staff writer, Grantland "["Baseball Maverick"] captures all of Sandy's complexity. It is a rollicking, fascinating read."--Lowell Cohn, Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Descripción Grove Press / Atlantic Monthly Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 234 x 165 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 2010, the New York Mets were in trouble. One of baseball s most valuable franchises, they had recently suffered an embarrassing September collapse and two bitter losing seasons. Their GM had made costly mistakes. And their principle owners were embroiled in the largest financial scam in American history. To whom did they turn? Sandy Alderson, a former marine who served in Vietnam and graduated from Harvard Law. In 1981, Alderson started in baseball with Oakland, where he led a revolution in the sport. The A s partnered with Apple, pioneered using statistical analysis, and became a powerhouse, winning the 1989 World Series. When new owners slashed payroll in the 1990s, Alderson s under-the-radar creativity and intelligent management were thrust into the spotlight. Granted unprecedented access to a working GM over several seasons, bestselling author Steve Kettmann traces Alderson s history and his renewal of the Mets despite a limited budget, through big trades that brought back high-profile prospects to the development of young aces including Matt Harvey, Zach Wheeler, and Jacob deGrom. Now, the turnaround is almost complete. Baseball Maverick is a gripping, behind-the-scenes look at a Major League team and a fascinating exploration of what it means to be smart.

Descripción Atlantic Monthly Press. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Hardcover. 320 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.In 2010, the New York Mets were in trouble. One of baseballs most valuable franchises, they had suffered an embarrassing late season collapse and two bitter losing seasons. Their GM made costly mistakes. And their principle owners, two Bernie Madoff investors, were embroiled in the fall-out from the largest financial scam in American history. To whom did they turn Sandy Alderson, a former marine who served in Vietnam and graduated from Harvard Law. Alderson started in baseball with the Oakland Athletics in 1981. Two years later, he was running the team. With the As, Alderson led a revolution in baseball. Partnering with Apple, he introduced the first computers into the sport and used statistical analysis for everything from unorthodox player evaluation to modernizing ticket sales. He attracted bright people and turned the team into a powerhouse, winning the 1989 World Series. When new owners slashed payroll, his creativity and intelligent management were thrust into the spotlight. Best-selling author Steve Kettmann follows Aldersons transformation of baseball over the last thirty years and his attempts to turn the Mets back into contenders. Baseball Maverick is a gripping behind-the-scenes look at a Major League team and a fascinating exploration of what it means to be smart. This item ships from multiple locations.
