1985 AL MVP revisited. Initially I thought Brett should have won it instead of Mattingly...now I'm thinking maybe it should have been Rickey.

Great book by Howard Bryant on Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson, but most touching was the blank page with three words before the contents:

“For Pedro Gomez.’’

The two became close friends 30 years ago when they covered the Oakland A’s together, and worked together at ESPN until Gomez’s death 15 months ago.
