The worst team money could buy : the collapse of the New York Mets by Bob Klapisch( Book )

Even before the New York Mets began the 1992 season, they'd set a critical record: the highest payroll ever for a major league team, $45 million. But it was worth it, right? With Bobby Bonilla, Vince Coleman, Bret Saberhagen, and Howard Johnson, winning another championship seemed a mere formality. Not. Last season's New York Mets never made it to Cooperstown. They finished the year just a breath out of the National League East cellar. They didn't only lose; they lost ugly. The few disgusted fans left at Shea loudly reminded the Mets that if they weren't the worst team money could buy, they were probably the baddest. Veteran newspapermen John Harper and Bob Klapisch now reveal the extraordinary inside story of the Mets' decline and fall - with the sort of detail and uncensored quotes that never run in a family newspaper. From the sex scandals that plagued the club in Florida (party, party, party with David Cone and Ron Darling) to the puritanical, no-booze rules of manager Jeff Torborg, from bad behavior on road trips (including a list of big leaguers' favorite bars) to the downright ornery practical "jokes" that big boys play, The Worst Team Money Could Buy is wackier than The Bronx Zoo and more risque than Ball Four. In other words, Klapisch and Harper have produced a grand-slam classic
Pride and pinstripes : the Yankees, Mets, and surviving life's challenges by Mel Stottlemyre( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the unique story of a beloved baseball man who has carried himself with great dignity through a lifetime of tragedy and triumph. More than a star pitcher and accomplished coach, Mel Stottlemyre has a history that serves as a behind-the-scenes tour of four decades of baseball. From Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford to Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry to Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera, Stottlemyre connected generations of stars during a remarkable career. The fact that he had a complicated, sometimes bitter relationship with George Steinbrenner for thirty years adds a layer of melodrama to the story of one of the classiest men ever to wear pinstripes, for both the Yankees and the Mets.--From publisher description
