Purchased this book for a lifelong Yankees fan 5 mars 2014
Par D. B. K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Admittedly, I'm a long time struggling NY Mets fan. The 80's were our heyday, but as we all know, the 80's had a lot of disappointment for our neighbors in the Bronx. When I saw this book written on the 1980's Yankees, I just had to purchase it for my buddy (who eats, sleeps and breaths the men in the pinstripes). Really never saw a book done on this era of the Yankees before.... and I couldn't resist getting it for someone who workshops them. I took a look through the material before giving it to him, and I have so say, the book is pretty well done. It's very easy reading, and the stories (told by the actual players and people of the 80's Yankees) really bring you back to a place we all remember so well..... Just how out of reach these Yankees years were. It's interesting how the book is written.... almost in an interview format.... just like you're reading exactly like it happened. And some of the best stories are pretty interesting nuggets that just haven't been publicized. I didn't think I would actually read the book that I got as a gift for someone, but like I said, it was a really easy (and fun) read. From a Mets fan, this book is definitely an 80's book to get.

Great Information But Needs Better Editing 2 mars 2014
Par Eric Paddon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The story of the Yankees in the 1980s is a mostly neglected period of their history compared to their earlier drought period of the CBS years. Because of that, it was great to see Prato, who has done similar oral histories for the NY Jets and NY Islanders of the 1980s, do one for the Yankees and give us the recollections of many players whose stories have never been seen before like Ron Davis, Barry Foote, Andre Robertson, Steve Kemp etc. Bigger names like Mattingly and Piniella are absent but that doesn't detract from the level of information that's given. It was really great to see a forgotten story like that of Dave LaRoche and the "La Lob" pitch that took Yankee fans by storm in 1981 get told at last in print.

What keeps this from being a five star effort though is that Prato fails to provide some helpful contextual and connective narrative between the recollections. Instead everything just kind of unspools in an unedited fashion in a chapter section with just a few parnethetical observations that leave out key details like where the Yankees finished in a given season etc. Since I knew all this info already it didn't bother me much, but it might be a little confusing for the uninitated. As a result, while this is an outstanding reference work of raw history about the Yankees in this neglected period, we could still use a solid narrative history of this era as well. But despite this one reservation, thank you Mr. Prato for taking the first big step forward and I recommend it highly to Yankee fans!

For the definitive 80's Yankee fan, a must-read 17 mars 2014

When my friend told me about this book, I knew it was something I had to get my hands on. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. There just isn't anything out there that speaks to the 80's Yankee fan. The book's format makes for easy reading, and really brought me back to the days of watching the Yankees on WPIX or from the rowdy right-field bleachers. Highly recommended for anyone, but especially for those hardcore fans who endured (and enjoyed) following the team during that period.

Prato Does It Again 11 août 2014
Par D. I. Kleban - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A great look back at Yankees from 1980's. Using same format that he used in "Sack Exchange" (Jets) and "Dynasty" (Islanders), Prato tells the story of the 80's Yankees through the players and others surrounding the team. This is the perfect format for this type of book as the reader gets an inside perspective that would not be seen if it was just the author recounting various games and events. Prato does a masterful job letting the story be told while staying out of the way which many writers fail to do. What is great is that even though Prato interviewed stars from those teams (Gossage, Righetti), it is the tales from the lesser celebrated players (Kemp, Fischer, Kittle, Pags, Balboni, Andre Robertson) that really add color to the narrative. What really struck me was how big an honor it was for these guys to put on the pinstripes even in some leaner years. I loved hearing about Steinbrenner and some of the charitable things he did that were not reported. To a man, the players seemed to love playing for George which is not the impression I had when I was growing up in NY in the 80's following these teams. Great stuff on Billy as well. For anyone who grew up rooting for these Yankee teams, this is a must read.

A Trip Back in Pinstripe History 16 juillet 2014
Par Malverne Ed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Another good book by Greg Prato. If you lived thru the 8o's in New York & followed the baseball scene, this book is for you. I am a die-hard Mets fan. The 1980's for me always represented the rise of the Mets. The Yankees seemed to be just close enough to make the postseason only to fade away in September. They surely would've been helped by a wild card berth if it was in effect then. The Yankees then were always one step in utter chaos created by the owner, George Steinbrenner. I felt those interviewed in the book alluded to that but pulled their punches a bit. The popular sentiment now is that George is a Saint & all the wackiness he exuded during the 1980's is forgotten. Those of us who remember those times, don't forget the constant changing of managers, trading away of prospects for over the hill free agents, the empty stadium, etc. My brother the die hard Yankees fan still racks his brain over how Steinbrenner was able to retain ownership. I rack my brain over how the Wilpon family still own the Mets daily. A blast back in time makes this a good read.
