UPDATE

A couple of juicy excerpts from the soon-to-be released Gaming the Game.


"When he told me about those other refs, I was so ...excited!" Battista tells the book's author, Sean Griffin, 41. "All I could think about was how we were going to get more inside information and more sure winners."

"Everybody assumed Donaghy was getting Foster's picks on Foster's games," Battista says. "I would love to see Scott Foster's phone records to see who he was calling after he talked to Timmy.






Bettor behind Donaghy scandal comes out with book

02.17.2011     07:07 AM     View Original Blog
Another book on the Tim Donaghy scandal is set to hit shelves this April. Gaming the Game is the story about the actual bettors who were associated with Donaghy and placed the bets. James "Baba" Battista was considered by most to be the ringleader of the operation. Author Sean Patrick Griffin paid Battista for his “exclusive collaboration”.


"Bookmakers knew something was going on," says Battista, in his book. "These were the most respected bookmakers in the world. They didn't cheat on the numbers, and they were very good at what they did. The lines were moving so much, and wasn't like there were injuries or anything else that could account for the big line moves."
