Product description


"[This] lively account of the team's trip from triumph to decline—first written in 1993, updated and reissued this year—will warm the heart of any Cub fan. . . . It's an unvarnished insider's view of what goes on within the game at many levels and a refreshingly honest exercise in self-discovery."—Dan McGrath, Chicago Tribune
(Dan McGrath Chicago Tribune)

“Filled with so many insider battles between and among every faction imaginable—players, coaches, fans, reporters—it almost reads like an election tell-all.”—Time Out Chicago
(Time Out Chicago)

"Exquistie Pain might be an alternate title chosen by long-suffering Mets fans who relive the disastrous 1992 season in this acute, lively, funny, infuriating and well-written book."—Daniel R. Bronson, Sports Literature Association
(Daniel R. Bronson Sports Literature Association)
