The Kansas City Athletics: A Baseball History, 1954-1967

 

Some diversion. Interesting because I didn't know much about this experience, other than the broad outlines. I knew Finley was sort of crazy, but I didn't realize how fully batshit and hostile this megalomaniac was.

 

Unfortunately, the book itself isn't written very well -- it's sort of a cross between reading the financial pages and hearing somebody read you the back of players' baseball cards for each season.

 

Did you know Finley also had a hand in an NHL Club?  The California Golden Seals.  He had them wear yellow and green and white skates...the team hated it.  We had their farm club The Golden Eagles in Salt Lake City in the late 70's and they had the same type of uniforms.

A few months later, I finished Stroke of Insight! Fascinating look into the woman's experience with her stroke.

Don Quixote. I've never read it and thought it was time.
