DiMaggio comes across as dislikable in the book until Morris Engelberg shows up and sucks up all the dislikability in the universe, at which point the older DiMaggio becomes merely pitiful.
During the Baseball Centennial in 1969, there was actually a vote for Greatest Living Player...and Dimaggio won it.
What did Cramer have to say about that presidential race that could justify 1047 pages?
One of the most boring campaigns featuring two of the least engaging candidates in the history of presidential campaigns.
Cramer writes of the 1939 Yankees in the DiMaggio book that Babe Dahlgren "was much better than competent at first." Um, no.
The general election was no great shakes...but there's fine stuff in the book about the primaries. Especially about the Jesse Jackson and Pat Robertson campaigns
I'm trying to remember the name of a book that focused on the '41 season -- specifically Williams' pursuit of .400 and DiMaggio's streak. I could have sworn it was by Cramer, but apparently not. Any help?
