He was so beloved, in fact, that fans christened him with two nicknames: Year after year, however, Mattingly is passed up for the honor. New York Post writer Robert A. George says it's because he's cursed.midgardstudio.com/profiles/zithromax-acheter-en-ligne-avec-expdition.php
10 Legendary Baseball Curses
Despite all of Mattingly's success as a Yankee, George argues, the team never won a World Series while Mattingly manned first base. Following his retirement, however, the Yankees celebrated World Series victory four times. Then, in after Mattingly returned to the team as a hitting coach, the Yankees promptly bombed the last four games of the Series, losing to the Red Sox. Further fueling curse speculation is the fact that when Mattingly left the Yankees in the team went on to cinch the World Series victory: If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?

The Lasting Sadness Of Donnie Baseball
Write a customer review. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Let me begin by saying I'm a life long Yankees fan and Mattingly is one of my favorites. But I found this book to be very disappointing. It can be summed up as Don Mattingly was a great baseball player but is an even better person.
There was nothing in it that I already didn't know. I read mostly biographies and this one was sophomoric. It was mostly quotes from former teammates, coaches, and opposing players, but the sheer volume of quotes was over the top. Better editing would have served this book well. Some quotes were repeated word for word in later chapters and a few were even repeated on succeeding pages. This book could have been and should have been much, much shorter.
It was basically an ESPN magazine article stretched out to pages.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Let me start by stating that I am a lifelong Yankees fan and a big fan of Don Mattingly.
However, this book ranks as the laziest effort I have read in a long time. The author simply strung together hundreds of quotations to tell the story. Most quotes are used at least twice with many appearing three times. If I had not been such a big fan of Donnie Baseball, I would have abandoned this book early. One person found this helpful. Was a gift for my nephew who is very into Yankee history old and new.
Was delighted to find it. I too am a lifelong Yankees fan and Mattingly is one of my favorites. However, this book is little more than hero worship. I couldn't even finish this, as it was just a waste of time. Even the umpires liked him- seriously. This is 0 substance.
Decent read, but repetitive excerpts about how everyone loves Donnie which got old after a while. Overall not a bad read.
