The Best Team Money Can Buy by Molly Knight

I have read my fair share of baseball books. I have even read my fair share to baseball that claim to show you the real stuff, the behind the scenes, in the clubhouse, or beyond the dugout stuff. And many of these books do give you authentic glimpses into the real world of professional baseball.

Having said all that, The Best Team Money Can Buy by Molly Knight, is simply the best baseball book I have ever read. She has seemingly impossible access to information from the owners to the players to the grounds crew. Her stories are incredible and almost unbelievable.

Having followed the Dodgers for my entire life, it was such a fun read to really see behind the curtain, especially after the last few tumultuous years as the Dodgers transitioned from the much maligned McCourt Era to the promising Guggenheim Empire. You get amazing stories about the new owners, Colletti, Kershaw, Grienke, Puig and everyone else.

There is really nothing more I can say. This is easily one of the best books I have read this year.
