    Hell, I won't even live in a city that does not at least have a AAA farm system team for the Cardinals.

    Having the spent the last few months on the deadball era (1880-1920) of the professional game and reading a biography on Wagner, I decided to read something written by Cobb, considered by most as one of the top players and worst humans to play the game.

    I picked up a kindle file on Amazon called Busting Em, written by Cobb in 1914 (only cost me $2).

    This book is well written and includes many baseball insights and anecdotes. The writing really is quite good.
