"A sobering, brutally honest look at the moves and misfires of one of baseball's last two teams to never make the World Series."--Geoff Baker, "Seattle Times" "If you're a Seattle baseball fan wondering how an affluent franchise, in an era of MLB parity, can be the only American League team never to make a World Series, you'll know after reading "Shipwrecked"."--Art Thiel, Sportspress Northwest, author of "Out of Left Field".
