With Damn Yankees, Rob Fleder, former Executive Editor for Sports Illustrated magazine, offers a timeless collection of original essays by some of the most prominent contemporary writers in America—from Pete Dexter to Jane Leavy, from Roy Blount Jr. to Colum McCann—each piece focusing on one uniquely colorful subject: the fanatically adored/resoundingly despised “Bronx Bombers.” Funny, moving, provocative, insightful appreciations and detractions—from Babe Ruth to Mickey Mantle to Derek Jeter—Damn Yankees offers twenty-four fascinating takes on the most storied franchise of baseball’s Major Leagues.

Those Damn Yankees

The Secret Life of America's Greatest Franchise

Author: Dean Chadwin

This paperback edition of Dean Chadwin's widely-discussed book has been expanded to include the Yankee's World Series appearance in the 1999 season. The New York Yankees have won twenty-five championships, more than any other American professional sports franchise. The team's rich history includes a color bar, the towering home runs and bottomless appetites of Babe Ruth, the early and intensely lamented death of Lou Gehrig, frequent labor disputes between players and owners, and the free verse of Yogi Berra and Phil Rizzuto. The 1999 season has emerged as one of the franchise's most memorable both on and off the field. As the squad raced through an all-time record for victories to win the World Series, observers wondered whether the club's stadium would return to its wandering ways of a century ago. The Yankees abandoned Baltimore in 1902. After seventy-five years in the Bronx, Yankee management are now pursuing a move to Manhattan or the suburbs that could tap into millions of public dollars. Those Damn Yankees is a riveting and unconventional foray into the murky underworld of baseball, from the incipient sexual desire of young girls visiting the Derek Jeter on-line fansite to the boozy macho heart of the Yankee Nation in the now-endangered bleachers. In compelling asides, Dean Chadwin looks at issues such as baseball's cult of memory, numerology in sport and society, the emergence of an anti-competitive baseball league of haves and have-nots, and a sporting cartel's exploitation of inter-city economic warfare.

Kate Dyer is a Yankee, Boston-born and bred. She's a lawyer by trade, on the wrong side of fifty, blunt, irreverent, and opinionated. She's what Southerners might colorfully call "contrary." Through an uninteresting twist of events, she's built a new life south of the Mason-Dixon Line—and she's having the time of her life doing it! As any successful lawyer must be, she's also a keen and astute observer of the human species. That makes her a bit of an amateur anthropologist who is eager to share her tongue-in-cheek observations. Here, to help fellow Yankees who share her newfound love of the South, she shares her best tips for fitting in with the locals. And for all those Southerners who just can't figure out those Yankees who have moved in, she's got a few tips as well. She offers some tongue-in-cheek guidance in how to decode regional vocabulary from both sides. And as an ingenious Yankee, she has a lot to say about good old-fashioned Yankee ingenuity. You'll also enjoy a culinary passport to the flavors of her childhood in Boston as well as her adopted Tennessee home, with dozens of recipes that showcase—and celebrate—the flavors of each region. A Taste of the North (or, A Little Yankee Home Cooking) Classic Crab Cakes New England Clam Chowder Fancy-Schmancy Baked Chicken in Wine Sauce Boiled Lobster Linguini with Artichoke Hearts and Prosciutto A Taste of the South (Or, How a Yankee Learned to Cook Like Y'all) Southern Fried Chicken Collard Greens for New Year's Day Oh-So-Southern White Beans Melt-in-Your-Mouth Southern Biscuits Proper Southern Grits So no matter what side of the "border" you call home, there's something here to amuse, enlighten, and enjoy.
