Read from February 29 to March 04, 2012

After reading Drinking Coffee with a Fork, this book was a disappointment. The author chose to jump around in time to relate the story, moving from 2008 to 1983 to 1993 to 1964 to 1950 to 1915 and back in random order, for no apparent purpose. It worked for Vonnegut, but not here. Most of the content deals with the 21st century Phillies, the least interesting group of characters in their long history. The other eras are given short shrift and little in the way of cohesive narrative. The section on the all-time best Phillies team in particular is a definite skipper. It's more of a semi-nostalgic outline than a coherent history of the franchise.
