The Year I Owned the Yankees (Sparky Lyle) pdf, epub, doc

It's really fun to look back on this book after 20ish years. The premise is simple: for some complicated reasons related to tax loopholes, George Steinbrenner has to give up the Yankees. Sparky Lyle takes them over for a year, ostensibly as owner, though he ends up involved in a lot of smaller decisions, much like George would have been.

The book is set in the early 90s, with a mixture of real players from that era and characters/players that Lyle created. A lot of this book is cliche, based on Lyle's view of the world and the game as he played it. A lot of the players he played with find their way into the story.

Now that time has passed, some of the things in this book seem silly. The players fly commercial, and collecting frequent flyer miles is a key plot point. The idea of using a computer for analysis, something taken for granted now, is a groundbreaking idea.

At times the story devolves into forced situations just so Lyle can tell a story from his playing days. But generally it follows a logical pattern. I have read this book several times over the years, and as long as I approach it from the right perspective, it's pretty enjoyable. But I can understand that it's an acquired taste.
