"Written with great color, style, humor, and grace, takes readers on a captivating ride. And while Hudson, Mulder, and Zito represented a uniquely entertaining era of A's baseball, the tale of their dramatic final season together is something ...
baseball fan will no doubt enjoy." Mike Silver, Sports Illustrated
"Mychael Urban's book is a fabulous read. He brings you behind-the-scenes with their private conversations and thoughts on the most famous pitching trio since Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and John Smoltz. Mychael had a unique relationship with Tim Hudson, Mark Mulder, and Barry Zito, earning their trust so they were comfortable enough to reveal intimate details of their personal lives. You learn about their hopes, their fears, their ideas, and just what makes them tick. You'll know everything from Barry Zito's parents to Mark Mulder's golf game to Tim Hudson's family life. This is hardly just a baseball book. It's about life, and the tremendous burden each pitcher carried while trying to lead the Oakland A's to the playoffs. I absolutely loved it." Bob Nightengale, Senior Writer/Columnist, USA Today Sports Weekly
"If you got any closer to Oakland's Big Three of Hudson, Mulder, and Zito than Mychael Urban takes you in this compelling read, you'd be standing in the middle of the Athletics' clubhouse. And I can assure you: Mychael's book smells much better. From the southern fried heat of Tim Hudson to Mark Mulder's cool aloofness to Barry Zito's cerebral wanderings, Urban captures the engine of Oakland's Little Engine That Could of a team with grace and aplomb."
