Baseball sensation Bobby Rayburn's major-league career is booming, and he just signed a multimillion-dollar contract with the Sox. Knife salesman Gil Renard's job is hanging by a thread and he just sold his most prized possession to stay afloat. All that keeps Gil going, in the face of divorce, destitution, and desperation, is rooting for the Sox--and the team's new savior, Bobby Rayburn. But when his idol sinks into the worst slump of his career, Gil realizes he alone has the power to restore the slugger's mojo. At the lowest point he has ever known, Gil finds his mission in life--a mission he will carry out no matter what it takes or who gets hurt.From the Paperback edition.
