OK: a bit poorly organized at times, with comments having little or nothing to do with players in question. Lots of times I wished for more. The book is probably too much a slave to its formatting which forces very brief comments on players--there are brief essays interspersed, but the average comment length should have been more flexible.

Neyer's not a bad writer, though. I'd read him again. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743241746, Paperback)

You love to argue about the game and its players, delving into baseball history and lore in search of support for your points of view. You'll find plenty of food for thought -- and argument! -- in Rob Neyer's Big Book of Baseball Lineups.

• All-time Red Sox starting pitcher -- Pedro or the Rocket?

• Gold Glovers -- who looked like one, who was one, and who ought to have been one?

• Lopsided trades that'll sting forever, and phenoms who seemed so real

• Classic nicknames -- from "Charlie Hustle" to "Big Hurt" to "The Mad Hungarian"

Neyer presents a series of lineups for each franchise -- from the All-Time and the All-Rookie to the All-Bust and the Traded Away. In notes, sidebars, and essays, he explores the careers of players both famous and obscure. The book includes information on all thirty current teams, as well as a special section covering legendary clubs like the Brooklyn Dodgers and Washington Senators. Neyer's Big Book is an unparalleled reference for settling the debates that arise every day in the lives of baseball fans.
