Read from August 15 to 30, 2011

This book seamlessly highlights the strength of character, the joy, the struggles, the camaraderie and, ultimately, the triumph that this group of unwanted misfits and "wash ups" went through in the 2010 season.

There are no words to properly express my joy and gratitude to the Giants for finally bringing a World Series championship to the city of San Francisco. Baggarly makes their victory that much sweeter by showing us that it could not have happened to a better group of guys. A true team.

Quotes D. Liked

“Former Journey lead singer Steve Perry was a lifelong Giants fan who grew up in the San Joaquin Valley. When the Dodgers started showing him on the big screen during their nightly sing-along, Perry protested by sneaking out of his seats before the eighth inning began. Now the Giants were making their playoff run, and Perry had become a regular sight at AT&T park, thrashing around from a club-level suite as he spurred on the crowd.”
Andrew Baggarly, Band of Misfits: Tales of the 2010 San Francisco Giants

“Neukom, the Giants' buttoned-down owner, finally found Ross and vigorously rubbed his bald head while screaming jibberish nobody could understand”
