Overview

In The Devil Wears Pinstripes, Jim Caple, ESPN.com's “designated Yankee hater,” takes on the rabid fans of baseball's twenty-six-time World Champions, and offers a decidedly different slant on the New York Yankees—the losers of thirteen World Series.

Caple delivers his send-up of the evil empire with scathing irony, laying waste to all things Yankees. A creative and unauthorized timeline pokes fun at the organization's trades, its legendary vanity, and its near-lethal stadium food. He skewers the owners, coaches and players—from the target of all targets George Steinbrenner to the pinstriped icons in the House That Ruth Built. Heroes and lesser mortals appear in all their tarnished glory, whether they're participating in a World Series shutout, in drunken brawls at strip joints, or engaging in the notorious wife-swapping incident of the 1970s.

Die-hard Yankee haters and the fans of all other baseball teams are sure to appreciate this hilariously provocative diatribe.

    New Title, Same Spiel

    This is yet another anti-Yankee diatribe. The author is witty and clever, and it's well-written. But the idea is old and no matter how fluid the writing, the author sounds like a cry-baby whose team hasn't won because the Yankees beat them. 2005 or 1956, same old story.

    Absolutely hilarious.

    I'm a third-generation Yankee-hater (both sides of the family), so talking about how evil the Yankees are is nothing new in my world. But Caple comes up with things I'd never known. I'd known that Steinbrenner fired Billy Martin on multiple occasions. I'd known that he fired Yogi Berra after a winning season. But I'd never known that, while Steinbrenner is (publicly, at least) very supportive of the Olympics, he is not supportive of sending players under contract with the Yankees to the Olympics. I'd heard the rumors that he cut wages and benefits for underlings while paying guys like Sterling Hitchcock to pitch for other teams, but never realized that these stories were true. I'd say he should be ashamed of himself, but we all know he has no shame. I started reading this on the bus on my way to work this morning, and had to stop because it was getting to be too difficult to stifle the giggles. I love ESPN.com's Page 2 and have enjoyed Caple's columns for years. I've also found the poorly written hate mail he gets from Yankee fans to be just as hilarious although, unlike Caple, these people aren't trying to be funny. This book proves yet again that, unlike the Evil Empire and its fans, Jim Caple has a sense of humor. Bravo Jim.
