    You might want to try some of the autobiographies of players who saw the humor side of the game. "Baseball is a Funny Game" by Joe Garagiola deals a lot with the joys of being a baseball player, and how fun it was for him. It's not exactly a book with a lot of bile in it, (sanitized, if you will) but it shows a lot of human aspects of ball players, such as who reads comic books and how layers in Garagiola's era were referred to in less than politically-correct terms in the dugout. (As someone of Italian heritage, Garagiola heard about it a lot. Even as he was told he was being traded, they still were calling him a less than kind term.)
