I just received my copy of “The Machine,” Joe Posnanski’s new book about the 1975 Cincinnati Reds.

I cannot wait to dig into the book. Posnanski is, for my money, the best sportswriter in the country. He is the author of my favorite baseball book, “The Soul of Baseball,” which you really must read if you haven’t already, and he writes for SI now (not to mention his always-entertaining blog).

Anyone else pre-order the book?

    Should be here by the end of the week. Caught the excerpt in SI a few months back, looks to have some fresh stuff on a pretty well covered by now team-era.

    Interesting whom is on the cover, I am shocked that MLB didn’t ban that cover, I mean they want no recognition of Pete in any manner

    Bought it at the bookstore. Am planning on attending the presentation and book signing at the Reds Hall of Fame on Saturday. Love Poz’s writing.

    Oh, didn’t the Red Sox win that Series on Fisk’s home run?
