We know jerseys. We know bobbleheads. But the ins and outs of actually running a team? No thanks. The financials alone would drive many of us to tears. Not Howard Megdal though. In the last 2 years Howard has published 2 books on the Mets.
In Taking the Field, Howard openly campaigns to be elected the GM of the Mets. It’s a fun read and it’s clear that he knows the team and its workings pretty well.
Howard followed it up with the ebook Wilpon’s Folly. The book received a lot of attention – deservedly so – as it is arguably the most in depth investigation of the Wilpon’s finances particularly surrounding the Maddoff ponzi scheme.
