This is a great story about two statheads running a minor league ball club. There's only one small problem.
The two narrators and the audio engineers HAVE NEVER WATCHED A BASEBALL GAME IN THEIR LIVES.
On one occasion, they pronounced Vin Scully as Vin SCOLLY. On another, they pronounced Whitey Herzog as WHITNEY Herzog. They're both in the Hall of Fame.It's a great book and a good performance, but the occasional pronunciation snafus take away from the experience.

This is a very interesting book, I was on the edge of my seat and had to force myself not to look up the final record of the team before finishing the book. (Kinda like reading the last page first!) However, the experience was ruined a bit by the narrators who didn't bother to look up the pronunciation of various names and places. Still, recommended for anyone interested in minor league baseball or sabermetrics.
