Big trades of all types and how they panned out. No Frank Robinson in this book, but Miguel Cabrera, Von Hayes, John Smoltz, and a few others are covered here.

So, I know I posted in the ‘Currently Reading’ thread about the Posnanski’s The Soul of Baseball-A Road Trip Through Buck O’Neil’s America, but again, can’t recommend it enough. 

You can tell Poz is genuinely taken with O’Neil and reading the text gives the reader insightful looks into not only racism and a different era of baseball, but into the man himself. Buck O’Neil could have been bitter-he’d have every right-but he is thoughtful and funny, a rare combination for people in general.

I wonder who else here has read it and what their thoughts are if so. Poz captures the essence of the man while spinning together many marvelous stories from his subject’s life. A very easy read.
