Overview:A's Bad as It Gets: Connie Mack's Pathetic Athletics of 1916 - This work is a game-by-game account of the Philadelphia Athletics' pitiful 1916 season, one where they won just 37 of 154 games. It starts with a brief biography of the team's living symbol-A's manager and coowner Connie Mack-through the birth of the franchise and into its first era of glory in which the A's won world championships in 1910, 1911, and 1913. Following the A's stunning defeat in the 1914 World Series to the underdog Boston Braves, Mack dismantled his championship club and finished last in the American League for seven straight seasons. The 1916 campaign was the nadir. The team's few solid veterans had a supporting cast of underachievers, college boys, raw rookies, no-hopers, and sub-par pitching. The book chronicles the daily grind of a team that had no chance to begin with and quickly became the laughing stocks of the AL. It contains many humorous anecdotes!
