Featuring Devin Gordon, author of So Many Ways to Lose: The Amazin' True Story of the New York Mets—The Best Worst Team in Sports
Created and hosted by writers Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth, Squawkin’ Sports is an ongoing series featuring book chats with grown-up authors writing about grown-ups playing kiddie games. For this installment, Sauer and Roth chat with author and lifelong Mets fan Devin Gordon on his new book, So Many Ways to Lose. The Mets have an unrivaled gift for getting it backward, doing the impossible, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, and then snatching defeat right back again. In this hilarious history of the Mets and love letter to the art of disaster, Gordon presents baseball the way it really is, not in the wistful sepia tones we've come to expect from other sportswriters. Along the way, he explains the difference between being bad and being gifted at losing, and why this distinction holds the key to understanding the true amazin’ magic of the New York Mets.
