Bullpen Diaries: Mariano Rivera, Bronx Dreams, Pinstripe Legends, and the Future of the New York Yankees (English Edition) Kindle电子书
“The great joy of this wonderful book comes from its layered structure, in which plays and players of long ago float in, around, over, and under every current game. A delightful and insightful book.” (- John Thorn, editor of Total Baseball, and author of Baseball in the Garden of Eden) --此文字指其他 kindle_edition 版本。

In "Bullpen Diaries", author Charley Rosen takes the reader through the entire 2010 season with the New York Yankee bullpen, month-by-month, relief pitcher by relief pitcher, and in some cases (literally) pitch-by-pitch. The baseball knowledge of the author is encyclopedic, as is his ability to spin a good yarn and relate an amusing anecdote. I've been a baseball junkie for decades and thorougly loved this book.
The only caveat -- and one that cost the book a 5th star -- is that there is simply too much information for anyone OTHER than a baseball junkie to absorb. The author anaylzed literally EVERY GAME of the 2010 season (not all games are analyzed in the book -- but dozens are). For the casual reader, this is overkill.
In other words, the reader needs to know what he (or she) is getting into before picking up this book. If you're looking merely for the casual anecdote about relief pitching -- go elsewhere. But if you REALLY want the inside scoop, you're going to love this book.
In fairness, it's a pretty good read if you like baseball stats (which I do), so it does merit a solid two star rating. Just don't expect a diary.
If you are looking for a 5 star book about baseball, I recommend Ball Four by Jim Bouton or maybe The Bronx Zoo by Sparky Lyle. Both of those books are more like real diaries than "Bullpen Diaries" (though neither is a true diary because the chapters don't start with, "Dear Diary,").
