Rubin a journalist on the Mets beat covers the 2005 season focusing on the team’s Latin American free agent stars Pedro Martinez and Carlos Beltran, and new GM Omar Minaya. He doesn’t stick to that theme too thoroughly or investigate it much but does at least differentiate from the racist detractors who call the team Los Mets and Minaya’s real effort to attract the best talent from Latin America starting with youth scouting as well as marketing the team to a wider populace beyond Queens. Most of the book is a day-by-day journal of the highs and lows of the New Mets season. Rubin uses a journalistic device of introducing events and the recapitulating and expanding on them several paragraphs later that doesn’t work as well in a book as it does in a newspaper article. Other than that, this was a fun way to relive 2005 and learn a bit more about my favorite team. ( )
