Vigor 2000

Vigor 2000 Jonah Keri’s new book “The Extra 2% How Wall Street Strategies Took a Major League Team From Worst to First” (Ballantine/ESPN Books Hardcover) hits books store today, vigor 2000 a day many baseball devotees have been waiting for.

Vigor 2000 The book chronicles the rise of the Tampa Bay Rays, vigor 2000 under the management skills of Stuart Sternberg and Mathew Silverman, vigor 2000 using their expertise in economics learned from their days together at Goldman Sachs.

Vigor 2000 The Rays were once the most disrespected franchise in baseball, vigor 2000 on and off the field. Vigor 2000 You could say the Rays were an undervalued commodity being that their continuous last place finishes; their reward was drafting very high in the June entry draft and getting the best choices of the top American amateurs out there. Vigor 2000 Upon taking ownership of the club, vigor 2000 Sternberg and Silverman put together a draft strategy, vigor 2000 and acquiring players who were proficient in the defensive end of baseball. Vigor 2000  

Vigor 2000 Sternberg and Silverman also changed the culture of the franchise by bringing in a positive dynamic to the front office and administrative staff who were beaten down under the Vince Namoli regime. Vigor 2000 They also did an intense rebranding of the team, vigor 2000 first dropping the name “Devils” and going with just Rays as the team nickname as well as ridding themselves of the weird color designs on the uniform.

Vigor 2000 While Sternberg and Silverman have been successful with the Rays on the field, vigor 2000 they are still fighting an uphill battle off the field, vigor 2000 dealing with issues of an antiquated and hard to get to ballpark and a depressed economy in Central Florida, vigor 2000 which has kept attendance down.

Vigor 2000 Sternberg has also been linked to becoming owner of the NY Mets as he is not only a Brooklyn native and Westchester resident but he is a lifelong Mets fan and season ticket holder still to this day. Vigor 2000    

Vigor 2000 As a Mets fan, vigor 2000 this book is of great interest to me (and it should be to you as well) as the franchise is entering uncertain times due to money problems of ownership that has been chronicled all winter and that we have a new front office headed by Sandy Alderson whose management style is the bench mark for what Sternberg and Silverman have used in Tampa.

Vigor 2000 The Extra 2 % can be obtained through Amazon, vigor 2000 Barnes & Noble (both on line and the good old brick and mortar) and all book stores. Vigor 2000 No matter how you buy your books these days (Kindle and Nook) I recommend highly that you either buy or download The Extra 2 % today.
