The Boss

Bill Madden’s new book, Steinbrenner: The Last Lion of Baseball [2] will be released next week. I’m not sure what new ground the book will cover, but Madden was given access to the personal musings [3] of former Yankees GM Gabe Paul–who tape recorded his thoughts–by Paul’s son, Gabe Jr. Early buzz has it that Madden’s book is especially strong on Steinbrenner’s early years in New York (again, I’m curious how it’ll be an improvement on Dick Schaap’s outstanding, Steinbrenner!) [4]

The Daily News has two excerpts from the book: one [5]and two [6].

Madden will be out at the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center this Thursday [7] to discuss the book. If you are in the vicinity, stop by and check him out. Should be fun.
