Among other joys, his journal offers strong views on: bogus stats like game winning RBIs, writerly delusions about baseball's ""flawless symmetry,"" managers who permit their charges to gamble with one another, Big Apple media darlings, and owners' claims of poverty.
Keith Hernandez doesn’t like baseball memoirs. When Hernandez was growing up in Pacifica, Calif. his father worked as a fireman. After an overnight shift, he would bring home fresh sourdough bread from a bakery in San Francisco. It feels like they’ve become a paint-by-numbers exercise, the former first baseman laments at the outset of his own entry in the genre. He’s confident you know about the time the 1986 Mets won the World Series. It was soft on the inside with a crust that made your teeth work just the right amount. Hernandez aspires for his book to be like that bread: Something that you set your teeth into and say, ‘Keith, that’s pretty good.
