Picked up Frank DeFord’s new novel, The Entitled, at Barnes and Noble today. Read the first chapter in about 10 minutes. I’ll give a full report on this blog when I finish it, but so far, it’s a page-turner. The main character (so far, anyway) is a manager of the Cleveland Indians who was a bad minor-league player, worked his way up gradually and finally got a shot to manage in the bigs (sound familiar?) who now senses he is about to be fired. That’s just the lead-in. I won’t spoil anything after that, but suffice to say, that ISN’T the primary storyline.
