2009 Mets Annual

Just finished my copy of the 2009 Maple Street Press Mets Annual, and I want to let you know what a terrific read it is.

The editors, Matt Silverman and Greg Spira, are both well-known to Mets fans. They did a masterful job writing and editing what really is the standard by which all other individual team compilations should be measured.

Matt's website, MetSilverman, is one of my daily stops. His thoughtful writing combines intellect, an analysts eye for detail, a great sense of humor, and a vast knowledge of Mets history.

In the Annual itself you'll find pieces by a bunch of our favorites, to include my good friend Ted Berg, Jon Springer, Howard Megdal (an extremely talented sports author), Andy Esposito and many more.

The annual itself is a great value, contains about 30 articles, has every number a stat-head could want, and has some really nice features on history, the new stadium, the 1969 team, a wonderful piece featuring Keith Hernandez, discussion of draft needs, a section on our best prospects, and some other terrific bennies like the schedule, stat breakdowns and much more.

So if you're looking for a quality product to sink your teeth into as we near opening day, this comes with my highest recommendation.

The book is carried at many newsstands and bookstores in the New York metropolitan areas, and you can always order it directly from Maple Street Press.Reblog this post [with Zemanta]
