Summary
  • "The inside-the-clubhouse story of two tumultuous years when the Los Angeles Dodgers were re-made from top to bottom, from the ownership of the team to management to the players on the field, becoming the most talked-about and most colorful team in baseball"--
  • In 2012, an investment group bought the Los Angeles Dodgers from Frank McCourt, who had driven the team into bankruptcy in the midst of an acrimonious divorce. They spent more than double the previous record for an American sports franchise, and they promised to increase the club's anemic payroll, win back frustrated fans, and turn the Dodgers back into a contender. Within two years, Los Angeles had the highest payroll in professional baseball and a roster loaded with eccentric and expensive superstars. Although titles continued to elude the team, it was clear that the infusion of cash had put the Dodgers back in contention, and that the new ownership group was determined to add more banners to the team's storied history, regardless of cost and clashing personalities. Author Molly Knight was granted access to ownership, management, and players. The result is one of the smartest and most revelatory baseball books ever published.--Adapted from book jacket
