The 2015 Mets shocked baseball. Division champions over the heavily favored Washington Nationals, the Mets blew past aces Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, and Jake Arrieta in the playoffs, and rode their power arms and Daniel Murphy’s record-breaking homerun stretch to the World Series.

But not everyone was surprised. For several seasons, bestselling author Steve Kettmann has had unprecedented access to Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson. In Baseball Maverick, originally published a the start of this historic season, Kettmann tells the story of Alderson’s unique and influential career, and follows Alderson’s painstaking rebuilding of the Mets—from big trades that brought back high-profile prospects to the development of young aces including Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard. Updated and expanded to include the playoff run, Baseball Maverick is a gripping, behind-the-scenes look at a revolution in baseball and the making of a magical season.
