“From the outside looking in, the Dodgers have been a bubbling cauldron of personality, talent and moods, with the occasional dollop of jealousy. In The Best Team Money Can Buy, it's as if Molly Knight ushers you behind the closed clubhouse doors to see it for yourself.”
– Buster Olney, ESPN
"Fascinating perspectives. . . . [Knight] knows her way around the clubhouse, and she writes about the game with authority."
– David L. Ulin, The Los Angeles Times
“With unprecedented access, Knight brings readers inside the clubhouse and the front office as no other writer has with any team, showing us a modern-day soap opera playing out at 60 feet 6 inches.”
– Keith Law, Analyst for ESPN's "Baseball Tonight"
“A well-written book that offers a nuanced look into the dynamics of a big league clubhouse. . . . A must-read.”
– Brendan Gawlowski, Baseball Prospectus
“In The Best Team Money Can Buy, Molly Knight lifts the curtain on one of the premier franchises in sports, taking readers beyond the field and into the clubhouse, board rooms and homes of some of the most compelling athletes of this generation. It is a rocky path—but a rollicking ride—for a glamour team bankrolled by billionaire owners who lifted the team from bankruptcy and will try anything to win a championship. With keen observations culled from tireless reporting, Knight deftly paints an intimate, nuanced portrait of the people behind it all, bringing these characters to life as nobody has before.”
– Tyler Kepner, national baseball writer for The New York Times
“An entertaining chronicle of two Dodger seasons. . . . Knight supplies plenty of juicy clubhouse details.”
– Gene Maddaus, L.A. Weekly
“For any self-respecting fan, putting this book down would be like trying to eat just one garlic fry. . . . An agile exploration of the Dodgers’ vertiginous 2013 season. Knight had her notebook out for all of it.”
– Los Angeles Magazine
"Consistently absorbing. . . . Knight is a talented journalist, and there's enough tumult in these pages to hold the attention of even a casual fan."
– Kevin Canfield, The San Francisco Chronicle
“Entertaining . . . offers interesting anecdotes about some of baseball’s most compelling figures, among them Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Don Mattingly and the enigmatic Yasiel Puig.”
– Ailene Voisin, The Sacramento Bee
"Knight delivers an elegant précis of a baseball team's season, and you don't have to be a Dodgers fan to enjoy it."
– Kirkus Reviews
"A compelling, well-examined book that exemplifies what occurs behind the scenes. A must-read for fans of the Dodgers and all Los Angeles sports teams. Knight's undercover work is like none other."
– Library Journal
