Book review: "Rob Neyer's Big Book of Baseball Lineups"

Posted on March 30, 2008

As a huge fan of baseball, I enjoy reliving the past seasons, teams and players that I may have seen, read or heard at some point in time. Rob Neyer cleverly combines the best and worst of every Major League Baseball team in his "Big Book of Baseball Lineups".

The copyright date is 2003, so of course you're not going to get the last few years. Nevertheless, for those of us who want baseball's past anyway, this is a great book to read. You'll find a few off-the-wall stories and also Neyer's opinions about who the best players were during many eras.

As a bonus, the appendix provides year-by-year lineups of every team. True, it doesn't reflect every single player at every single position, but at least you'll get to see the starters of the individual seasons.
