really liked it

Three and half stars, because I liked some parts and really liked others. I enjoyed the mix of baseball and literature, the prose (for the most part), and the conflicted characters (for the most part). The story did bog down a bit in the middle, but picked up the pace nicely in the final quarter. The baseball and Melville metaphors didn't always work, and the plot took maybe one too many twists at the end. But all in all a good read, along the lines of "The Marriage Plot."
